Zayn Malik was noticeably absent from the Teen Choice Awards 2015 yesterday, even though he's been chilling in Los Angeles, and it's all because he wanted to avoid the drama! According to a new report, he opted out of the big night to avoid running into Perrie Edwards and facing a One Direction showdown.
"Zayn is in L.A. and easily could have attended the awards, but he didn't want to deal with all the drama," their source said.

"Not only Perrie, but being nominated against 1D for Choice Male Hottie makes him uncomfortable, too. He is going to steer clear of the whole scene."
In the end he didn't even win the award, but it seems like he had a fun night hanging out with friends instead.

Since Little Mix was all over the award show last night, from their epic performance to their red carpet shenanigans, maybe it was good that he avoided the show. There could have been a major confrontation!
Do you think that Zayn is really trying to avoid awkward run-ins with his ex? Let us know in the comments!
