You know who's really lost out with Zayn leaving One Direction?
Okay, yes, apart from retailers who now have piles of Zayn dolls they're going to have to mark down.
It's his former bodyguard:
Guys , just so you know , I'm just as sad about Zayn leaving the band , I've been with them 5 years , but I respect his choice :-/— Preston Mahon (@prestonmahon) March 30, 2015
I have to respect it , even tho it's put me out of work now :-( but I'll bounce back , I hope x— Preston Mahon (@prestonmahon) March 30, 2015
It's interesting that Malik's management appear to have concluded that once he's no longer in the band, the risks that used to haunt his every step evaporate. There's a duty of care question hidden behind those two tweets.
