Zayn Malik is reportedly set to write a ‘tell-all book’ that will expose One Directions’s secrets – Simon Cowell isn’t happy.
Simon Cowell is furious that Zayn is set to write a tell-all book that will expose secrets about One Direction, reports suggest.
Zayn quit One Direction in March last year and has since taken the solo path.
The tell-all book will apparently cover headlines claims of drug use and allegations he faced about reportedly ‘cheating’ on Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards.
A source told the Mail on Sunday: “This book is going to be explosive and Simon Cowell will be furious with Zayn and may even try to stop it coming out.
“But Zayn is determined to reveal the secrets behind the clean image that was always so fiercely protected by the band’s publicity machine.”
Zayn has previously slammed One Direction’s music, saying: “It was music that was already given to us, and we were told this is what is going to sell to these people.
“Whenever I would suggest something, it was like it didn’t fit us. There was just a general conception that the management already had of what they want for the band, and I just wasn’t convinced with what we were selling.”
Simon Cowell slammed Zayn’s comments, saying: “It is a bit rude to the people who wrote all the hits with them. And to the other band members. I mean they all wrote a lot of the stuff.
“I think once he has had a chance to reflect on everything he will probably reconsider what he’s said because it was a very, very democratic process in the band.
“Life could have been a lot worse, right?”
