Zayn Malik in ES Magazine; Revealed He Suffered from Eating Disorder
Brooding Zayn Malik smoulders on the November issue of ES magazine as he models the latest Versace collection shot by photographer Clare Shilland.
In the interview, the singer opened up about his eating disorder during his time in ‘One Direction’.
“Something I’ve never talked about in public before, but which I have come to terms with since leaving the band, is that I was suffering from an eating disorder,” he revealed.
“It wasn’t as though I had any concerns about my weight or anything like that, I’d just go for days – sometimes two or three days straight – without eating anything at all,” he said.
“It got quite serious, although at the time I didn’t recognise it for what it was.”
He added: “I had lost so much weight I had become ill. The workload and the pace of life on the road put together with the pressures and strains of everything going on within the band had badly affected my eating habits.”
