Washington: One Direction star Liam Payne says his former bandmate Zayn Malik left the band because of his relationship with Little Mix star Perrie Edwards.Â
Malik’s bandmate Payne has revealed the 22-year-old singer decided to leave the band back in March in a bid to rescue his romance with the “Wings” singer, as well as to spend more time with his family.Â

Payne insisted there are no hard feelings between himself, Malik and the remaining band members Niall Horan,Â Harry StylesÂ and Louis Tomlinson, as they can understand his motives.
