Zayn Malik has canceled a second show as he continues to struggle with anxiety. In June, the Mind of Mine singer was forced to call off an appearance at London’s Capital Summertime Ball, and now the news comes that he will not be able to perform at his Dubai show that was scheduled for October 7.
Just last week, Selena Gomez canceled her ‘Revival’ tour to “be proactive and focus on maintaining [her] health and happiness.” Zayn released a similar statement in an apology to those planning to attend, and #GetWellSoonZayn began trending on Twitter shortly after. Read his message below.

Thank you to all my fans who support me globally.
With love and respect always,
