Zayne Malik’s sister ask fans to pray for him

Zayn Malik’s younger sister has asked fans to pray for the troubled One Direction star.

Waliyha – who appeared in the video for Story Of My Life with her older brother – took to her Instagram page to ask fans to pray for Zayn and revealed that the “hatred” he has received is “really hurting him”.

Waliya’s message comes after Zayne quit the One Direction world tour, returning to the UK to deal with stress issues.

Sharing the message with a plea for fans to repost, she wrote:  “Don’t worry guys, Zayn is going to be okay very soon. All the stress has just gotten to him because of the rumours and hatred he has heard and received.

“It’s really hurting him, some people are just giving him to much. People need to realize my brother is human to, stop hating him because he hasn’t done anything to anybody, except for defending himself because of what people heard of what he did, but it isn’t true.”

“I love my brother to death, and I do not want to lose him for anything, it hurts me to see him not feeling good. Please pray for my brother, please help him because I know he will be okay.  please stop sending him hate and getting on him for what he has “did” (sic).”

After Zayn was spotted cosying up to Essex girl Lauren Richardson, causing speculation he had cheated on Perrie, a source told The Sun newspaper: “Zayn can’t cope with his private life being scrutinised to this level. 

“He’s worried if he’ll ever be able to managed the constant attention like the rest of his bandmates.”
