Harry Styles appeared to break down in tears on stage as he apparently struggled to come to terms with Zayn Malik’s sudden departure from boyband One Direction.
The 21-year-old singer appeared to become overwhelmed with emotion as he performed with the band at a concert in Jakarta, Indonesia.
The emotional moment was captured on video tonight and uploaded to YouTube by fan Ameylie Jones.
Just hours before, Zayn announced he would be leaving the band so he can live the life of a “normal 22-year-old”.
He recently flew home from the band’s world tour due to stress, after pictures were published of him cosying up to a mystery brunette. He was forced to deny he had been cheating on his fiancee, Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards.
He said today: “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. 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.”
