Zayn didn't hold back in his new interview with The Sunday Times Style as he opened up about his past struggles and his current relationship with supermodel Gigi Hadid.
The 24-year-old says he's a free man revealing that he no longer has problems with anxiety, saying, "It was something I was dealing with in the band".
Zayn who previously spoke about struggling with an eating disorder continued to say, "People saw strength in that, and they didn't seem to expect it from a guy, but they expect it from a female, which to me is crazy. We're all human. People are often afraid to admit difficulties, but I don't believe that there should be a struggle with anything that's the truth''. Clarifying that it wasn't specifically an "eating disorder'' but rather a "control thing'' that helped him redirect from his previous One Direction ''so regimented and controlled'' lifestyle.
On another note, Zayn gushes about living with Gigi Hadid for the past year at his Bel Air home and says, ''I've never took her to my hometown Bradford, not yet. She's met my family in London a few times, though."
''I call her Gee, she calls me Zee. There's some other nicknames too, but I'll keep those private,'' said Zayn to the publication.
The I Don't Wanna Live Forever singer also revealed how he surprised his girlfriend while she was in Paris for fashion week, saying: ''She didn’t know I was coming. I went up to the suite to knock on the door…But my number had changed to European on her phone, so it wasn’t much of a surprise in the end. She played along with it, though''.
This guy knows how to keep things fresh...
