London: TV host Wendy Williams says the rest of the One Direction members should kick out Zayn Malik from the boy band since he wants to live a normal life by taking hiatus from their ongoing tour.

During the taping of the Monday episode of "Wendy Williams Show", the host boldly stated: "Here's what I think, One Direction, One Direction fans and anyone else who cares ... I feel as though if you can do five-part harmony, it's just as easy to do four-part harmony.
"I say kick this guy out of the group because now, that's more money for the rest of us. We don't have to split our money five ways."
Williams' statement was made in the wake of Malik's recently announced hiatus from the band's "On the Road" tour because of stress.
Earlier this month, his representative publicly confirmed: "Zayn has been signed off with stress and is flying back to the Britain to recuperate. The band wish him well and will continue with their performances in Manila and Jakarta."
Williams further explained: "I admire him for standing in his own truth, which is that being a celebrity-particularly as a young person-it's a lot and all he wants to do is go back and live a normal life. I appreciate people who stand in their own truths so if this is what this guy wants, kick him out of the band."
