Harry and Liam finally speak out following shock news

Harry Styles and Liam Payne have been the only members of One Direction so far to break their silence following the shock news of Zayn Malik’s departure yesterday afternoon.

Liam took to Twitter only four hours ago to voice his feelings about the events, saying simply: “So glad to be in bed after a long and strange 24 hours.”

Harry meanwhile, chose not to mention the incident at all, writing to fans: “All the love as always. H.”

Niall and Louis have not broken their silence on social media as of yet while Zayn’s last Twitter message is the one that seems to have kicked everything off, writing angrily: “I’m 22 years old… I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there’s a lot of jealous fu**s in this world I’m sorry for what it looks like x.”

It seems that although Liam may have said very little, his message about the events that unfolded yesterday don’t exactly seem to say that all is great between the lads.

Harry was also spotted crying on stage before the announcement was made public, proving that Zayn's departure has obviously been very hard on the guys. 

Let’s hope we’re wrong – after all,  there’s always a reunion tour… 

Update@11:49: Louis Tomlinson has now also taken to Twitter to speak about Zayn's departure from the band. 

Louis took the opportunity to assure fans that the band will keep going as a foursome – even promising to make the new album better than ever.
