One Direction fans were shocked to hear Zayn Malik quit the band, but another bomb could end up being even more scandalous. Rumors have circulated that Malik has a sex tape. But that’s not all, Directioners: The rumors claim that the lady in the video isn't fiancée Perrie Edwards. Of course, there is no word if the rumor is true or not -- so, for now it is just gossip.

"Zayn's heard there is a sex tape going around of him naked and partying. He's not sure if it's legit but thinks there is a good chance it could be,” a source told OK! Magazine via celebrity blogger Perez Hilton. “He's going out of his mind. Zayn is panicking because he and Perrie are already hanging by a thread. A racy video would be the end for them."

But don’t be too worried, though. Gossip Cop is calling OK!’s bluff. The story is “total bulls--t,” a source told Gossip Cop.

The star originally left the band because he said he wanted time to be a normal 22-year-old, but the next day he was spotted in the studio and within days of his One Direction departure, he released a solo single. The band said they were “gutted” by the decision to leave the band during their first interview without Malik.

Now, they might use his absence for inspiration. “It wouldn’t be a diss track or call him out by name or anything like that. The discussions have just been about channeling the emotions surrounding the situation in to a song. You write what you know and his leaving was a big moment in their lives. They will just not let their first album without Zayn fail,” a source told Hollywood Life.
