Zayn MalikZayn Malik is said to have reached out to Adele for help in overcoming his anxiety.

Adele has previously spoken about her anxiety issues, which had prevented her from playing large festivals. But she eventually overcame her issues and next weekend she’ll headline Glastonbury festival for the first time.

In 2011 she told Q magazine: “I have anxiety attacks, constant panicking on stage, my heart feels like it’s going to explode because I never feel like I’m going to deliver, ever. I will not do festivals. The thought of an audience that big frightens the life out of me. I’d hate to book a festival and have a ******* anxiety attack and then not go on stage.”

Speaking about Zayn’s problems a source told The Mirror: “Zayn’s management are doing everything they can to help him because its having a major impact on his career. I believe she been in touch with Adele’s manager Jonathan Dickins about it because Adele got a lot of help with panic attacks and stage fright - and look at her now.

“They’re pulling in people who can help him because he can overcome this and if he’s going to stay in music and singing he absolutely has to get it under control. After the issue last weekend it has become a matter of urgency. During One Direction’s tours Zayn used to see the crowd and melt.

"He’d sweat, moan, complain, and he had to have a smoke, and a few beers beforehand to calm him. I’m sure that was a big factor in his decision to leave One Direction. He woke up one morning and just could no longer deal with the fear. He pulled out of Graham Norton because he was bloody terrified. He told me so himself. Touring and appearances was always his least favourite thing.”

Last weekend after Zayn pulled out of his appearance at Capital’s Summertime Ball he told fans: “Unfortunately my anxiety that has haunted me throughout the last few months around live performances has gotten the better of me. With the magnitude of the event, I have suffered the worst anxiety of my career.

"I cannot apologise enough but I want to be honest with everyone who has patiently waited to see me, I promise I will do my best to make this up to everybody I’ve let down today. I know those who suffer anxiety will understand and I hope those who don’t can empathise with my situation.”
