Zayn Malik's anxiety issues continue to plague him.
Malik has cancelled or postponed several shows / appearances since launching his solo career, and a gig in Dubai scheduled for Oct. 7 is the latest. Malik wrote a letter to fans explaining what's up saying he's a work in progress, but doesn't feel ready to perform next month.
I have been working over the last three months to overcome my extreme anxiety around major live solo performances I feel I am making progress but I have today acknowledged that I do not feel sufficiently confident to move forward with the planned show in Dubai in October.
I am assured that all tickets will be refunded.
I am truly sorry to disappoint you. I hope to see you all soon.
Thank you to all my fans who support me globally.
With love and respect always,
One of the downsides to fame... might be time to consider another career, Zayn.
