Zayn Malik's Twitter followers plummet

Former One Direction star Zayn Malik has lost an eye-watering 50,000 followers on Twitter.com in the wake of his departure from the boy band last week (ends29Mar15).

The singer made the shock announcement that he was leaving the group so he could live like a "normal 22 year old", devastating his devoted fan base.

And it appears many One Direction fans have turned off Malik following his departure - MailOnline.com reports that around 50,000 upset followers are no longer reading his posts on the microblogging site.
