Zayn Malik poses shirtless and shows off his back tattoos in rare post six months after his split from Gigi Hadid.
The former One Direction singer didn’t add any comment to the snap but was soon inundated with messages from concerned fans.
“We love you so much! Hope you’re doing well,” commented one fan account.
While another added: “Can’t wait for new music”.
The solo singer released his last album Nobody listens over a year ago in January 2021 – but only peaked at number 17 on the UK chart.
The 29-year-old father-of-one split from model Gigi Hadid, with whom he shares baby daughter Khai, in October.
The split came after Zayn was accused of hitting Gigi’s mother, Yolanda Hadid.
Yolanda Hadid, 57, claimed her daughter’s lover hit her – an allegation the musician adamantly denies.
Following the allegations, the former 1D Man denied hitting his girlfriend’s mother after an argument.
But the pop star has agreed not to “dispute” claims in US media that he met reality TV star Yolanda.
He issued a statement, which said: “I firmly oppose smacking Yolanda Hadid and in the interest of my daughter I decline to give further details and I hope Yolanda will reconsider her false allegations and do so.” will move on to solving these family problems privately.”
He wrote: “As you all know, I am a private individual and I am passionate about creating a safe and private space for my daughter to grow up in.
“A place where private family matters aren’t thrown onto the world stage for all to pick apart.”

He then added: “In an effort to protect this space [my daughter] I have agreed not to contest claims arising out of an argument I had with a family member of my partner who entered our home while my partner was away a few weeks ago.
“This was and should still be a private matter but at the moment there seem to be divisions and despite my best efforts to put us back into a peaceful family environment that will allow me to raise my daughter in a way that she deserves, this was “leaked” to the press.
“However, I hope all involved are healed with the harsh words, and more importantly, I remain vigilant to protect Khai and give her the privacy she deserves.”

Court documents claimed Zayn “shoved [Yolanda] into a dresser that causes mental anguish and physical pain” after reportedly being called a “Dutch slut.” He reportedly told her: “Stay away [my] damn daughter.”
The papers added claims that Zayn allegedly told Gigi to “buckle up some f***ing balls and defend your partner from your f***ing mother.”
The couple reportedly rowed over a picture Yolanda shared on Instagram, which unknowingly gave fans a glimpse of their child Khai’s face.
