Zayn Malik Early Life, Parents

Zayn Malik was born Zain Javadd Malik in Bradford, West Yorkshire, to an immigrant Pakistani Muslim father, Yaser Malik, and a White British mother of English and Irish descent, Trisha Malik (née Brannan), who converted to Islam upon marriage. Malik has one older sister, Doniya, and two younger sisters, Waliyha and Safaa. Despite having an Islamic upbringing, he no longer identifies as a Muslim.

Zayn Malik Career

In 2010, 17-year-old Malik auditioned in Manchester for the seventh series of reality television competition The X Factor. On the morning of the audition, Malik became nervous and did not want to attend, but his mother eventually forced him out of bed and coaxed him into going. He sang “Let Me Love You” by Mario as his audition song and was accepted into the next round. Upon auditioning for The X Factor, Malik stated that he was “looking for an experience”. Despite being eliminated before the final round of the competition, judges Nicole Scherzinger and Simon Cowell grouped him with fellow competitors Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson to form a new act for the remainder of the show, the boy band that would become known as One Direction. The group quickly gained popularity in the UK, finished in third place, and were subsequently signed by Cowell to a reported £2 million Syco Records recording contract. They signed in North America with Columbia Records.

In November 2014, the group’s fourth album, Four, was released. The album was their fourth consecutive number-one album, debuting at number one in 18 countries and selling 3.2 million copies. Singles “Steal My Girl” and “Night Changes” both achieved platinum status in the US, among other countries. In 2015, the group began the On The Road Again Tour. On 18 March 2015, following the band’s 16th show of the tour, it was announced that Malik had become overwhelmed with stress and would be absent for the remaining shows of the Asian leg of the tour.

One week later, on 25 March 2015, the band announced his departure. In the band’s official statement, Malik cited his desire to live as a “normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight”, and denied rumours of any rift between the members, explaining that they had been supportive of the decision.

However, in a December 2015 interview with The Fader, Malik expressed that he was unhappy with the group’s musical direction, noting that “there was never any room for me to experiment creatively in the band” and “if I would sing a hook or a verse slightly R&B, or slightly myself, it would always be recorded 50 times until there was a straight version that was pop, generic as f—, so they could use that version”. In an interview given to Apple Music the next month, Malik stated that “I think I always wanted to go, from like the first year” and “I never really wanted to be there, like in the band. I just gave it a go because it was there at the time … I instantly realized it wasn’t for me, because I realized I couldn’t put any input in”.

In May and June 2020, Malik expressed support for the Black Lives Matter movement by sharing links to petitions and donating to the George Floyd memorial fund. During the 2014 Israel–Gaza conflict, Malik posted the message “#FreePalestine” on Twitter, causing him to receive angry responses and death threats online.

On 8 November 2022, Malik wrote a public letter to British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, where he urged him to widen the excess to free school meals during the cost of living crisis.
