ZAYN Malik left One Direction because he felt like a “robot,” ex Abi Clarke told a friend.
The pop star, 29, told Abi he hadn’t even spoken to his band members at the time of their breakup.
Abi told a friend: “He told me about the fall.
“He said he was forced to do things he didn’t want to do. He said, ‘I’m not a robot’.
“They wanted him to go down a path that he didn’t want to go. It resulted in a fall out.”
Zayn, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson, have together on The X Factor after individual audition.
They went on to sell 70 million records with mentor Simon Cowell’s Syco Records label.
Zayn is said to be annoyed with the way the rest of the group obey Harry.

Abi told his friend: “He is really fed up. Zayn feels like an ‘outsider’. “
Abi also told her friends Zayn sings before her with a new song and hint that she might be in the video.
She told her friend: “I later found out it was his hit Dusk Till Dawn, which he released in September 2017.
“It was surreal to hear it on the radio.”
The band was formed in 2010, then split in 2016.
