The Guys Of One Direction Break Their Silence About Zayn Malik

"You are the best fans in the world and you deserve nothing less from us!"

Unless you've been living under a rock, you now know that Zayn Malik, resident angelic being of One Direction, has quit the band. After a few dark, tear-filled hours of silence, the rest of the guys finally spoke out about the tragic event.

Harry Styles was first to break the silence, tweeting his love for Directioners, as always:

And Liam Payne chimed in shortly after with a ~typical Liam tweet~:

So glad to be in bed after a long and strange 24 hours

Following that up with a more sentimental, inspiring message for fans:

The comments continued this morning, with Louis Tomlinson giving a heart-melting promise that the guys will continue on, and work as hard as ever:

Been a crazy couple of days but know that we are going to work harder than ever to deliver the best album we've ever made for you guys !

Your support has been incredible , truly incredible so thank you so much !

With Niall sending out a similar, beautiful note causing hearts across the globe to swell up with emotion:

Been a mad few days and your support has been incredible as per usual ! This in turn Spurs us on to make the best music we possibly can

Put on great shows / tours for you guys. You are the best fans in the world and you deserve nothing less from us!

The lads and I arrived in South Africa this morning . We cannot wait to see all you SA fans for the first time and have great shows.

Even Simon Cowell, the man who started it all, reacted to the split:

Sometimes strength is not defined by numbers.

As always you the fans have shown your amazing support to all the boys. When you have great talent great things happen.

And now we're left to wallow in a puddle of tears for the next 72 hours.

Thank you for five perfect years, Zayn.
