Unfortunately, there’s been some bad news for Zayn Malik and his family recently.

Zayn’s 3 year old cousin Arshiya is seriously ill in hospital, following an operation on a brain tumour earlier this week.

She went to hospital on Monday for the surgery, and has remained in intensive care since.

She’s currently on life support, and Doctors have told family there’s only a 1% chance of survival.

Zayn’s cousin Aroosa Malik posted a photo of Arshiya a couple of days ago, asking fans to pray for her.


She wrote: “Please can everyone pray for Arshiya as much as you can as her MRI scan didn’t come out good.

“Doctors are saying theres nothing they can do & have put her on life support machines now.”

She added: “Please keep her in your duas (prayers) always & the rest is up to Allah. x”

She also tweeted last night: “Went to see Arshiya today. Gutted me up! Looks like a totally different baby 😦 Please keep her in your duas. Thank you ❤ xxx”

Since the sad news broke, Directioners have started to tweet #PrayForArshiya out, and it’s trended a few times.

Aaroosa posted another Instagram photo later, this time featuring a religious piece. With it, she said: “Please read this for Arshiya. It’s all up to Allah now & miracles can happen. Thank you all for your duas”

It’s horrible news to hear, and after seeing One Direction do so much charity work with sick children, it’s sad to see something like this happen to someone in their own family.
