Zayn Malik ditches links to One Direction on Twitter

Former One Direction star Zayn Malik has further distanced himself from the boy band by removing his social media links to his pals' official website.

Until Thursday (30Apr15), Malik's Twitter handle was 'zaynmalik1D' and his biography contained a link to the band's website, but he has kicked off May by losing the '1D' and opting not to reference his ex-group.

Malik quit the band in March (15) while One Direction were on tour in Asia.

The singer revealed he wanted to be a "normal" 22 year old.

The walk-out came just days after Malik was linked to an Australian beauty after photos of them emerged online. The singer was accused of cheating on his British fiance Perrie Edwards.
