Fans Concerned About Zayn Malik’s Health After Possible Weight Loss

By  | 

Zayn Malik has been teasing new music for several weeks now and as each day passes we’re (hopefully) getting closer to a new release. The 25-year-old was spotted filming a music video in Miami, Florida recently and while fans were obviously super excited to see movement in his career, they also noticed that he is looking much skinnier than normal. And seeing as he struggled with an eating disorder in the past, this is causing them to be concerned for his health.

Here’s what the “Dusk Till Dawn” singer looked like earlier this week:

And here’s what he looked like at the 2018 Grammy Awards on January 28:

He’s wearing different clothing, obviously, but some supporters still think they see a stark difference and are asking if everything is okay.

Others, however, think it’s incredibly insensitive to judge someone’s weight (skinny-shaming is a thing, after all) — ESPECIALLY someone who has struggled with eating issues in the past.

“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,” he wrote in his autobiography, Zayn, which was released in November 2016. “I’d just go for days — sometimes two or three days straight — without eating anything at all. It got quite serious, although at the time I didn’t recognize it for what it was.”

The British crooner went on to say things got really bad in late 2014.

He continued, “When I look back at images of myself…before the final tour, I can see how ill I was. The workload and the pace of life on the road put together with the pressures and strains of everything going on within the band had badly affected my eating habits.”

Fortunately, he sought help and was able to get his eating disorder under control.
