Zayn Malik is reportedly considering quitting One Direction but the band's spokesperson has denied the claims.
The young singer was said to have sparked fear among record executives after announcing he plans to leave the group.
Speaking to Celebuzz, an inside source said that Malik had become "disillusioned" with fame since in the tabloid rumours claimed that he had cheated on his girlfriend, Little Mix star Perrie Edwards, with an Australian waitress.
The boyband member was described as "in a daze" by the source, and is said to be missing his family.
Syco boss Simon Cowell was alleged to have stepped in to offer his support to the star, and promising to put him on a lighter schedule.
The source said,"There is growing concern among the bosses that Zayn is on the brink at the moment."
However, an official spokesperson for the group has denied the claims, telling Digital Spy, "Zayn isn't leaving the band."
One Direction are currently gearing up to release their Comic Relief single 'One Way Or Another', a cover of Blondie's 1979 hit that also samples The Undertones' classic track 'Teenage Kicks'.
Then the band are preparing for a busy year of touring that will see them perform in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Dublin, London and Milan.
