Zayn Malik is an open book.
In an interview with the Associated Press (via the BBC), the "Like I Would" singer revealed he suffered from an eating disorder during his final months as a member of One Direction. "When I look back at images of myself from around November 2014, before the final tour, I can see how ill I was," Malik, 23, said. "Something I've never talked about in public before, but which I have come to terms with since leaving the band, is that I was suffering from an eating disorder."
"It wasn't as though I had any concerns about my weight or anything like that. I'd just go for days—sometimes two or three days straight—without eating anything at all," the British pop star confessed. "It got quite serious, although at the time I didn't recognize it for what it was."
