It's a sad day for teenage girls everywhere, as the band One Direction announced that Zayn Malik has left the group for good. Malik announced this news via the group's Facebook page and called his experience with the band "Five incredible years."

“My life with One Direction has been more than I could ever have imagined. But, after five years, I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band,” he said in the statement. “I’d like to apologise to the fans if I’ve let anyone down, but I have to do what feels right in my heart. I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight. I know I have four friends for life in Louis, Liam, Harry and Niall. I know they will continue to be the best band in the world.”
