Zayn Malik has not been banned from joining Perrie Edwards on Little Mix's tour! While the Mirror claimed that he was not going to be allowed to follow her around the world after leaving One Direction, their reps have confirmed that the report is false.
The original story insisted that senior management explicitly told him not to join them on their press tour.
"The law has been laid down to Zayn — you cannot follow Perrie around like a puppy dog. Senior figures are worried that with Zayn being so lost and confused after his One Direction split, he will just want to hang out with Perrie to make him happy," their source claimed.
"One aspect is that he is desperate to show her that their relationship and real and things are back on track despite accusations he cheated on her while in Thailand. For Little Mix, the next year is vital in terms of their progression. They will tour a new record and promote themselves. They have achieved a strong base following, but they need to convert that into becoming better known."

According to the report, executives thought he'd be a distraction to Perrie, especially because the cheating rumors already sparked so much media attention about their relationship.
"Having distractions is not what they need. Perrie already faces dozens of media questions about Zayn, when the focus should be on their music. And bosses have been able to enforce the rule, because the former 'Steal My Girl' singer is now locked into a solo record deal with Simon Cowell's record label, Syco. This is not a case of asking Zayn, it is telling him."
We're glad this news isn't true! As a couple that's enjoying finally being able to spend some time together, we don't think they'd be able to stand being apart for so long.
