Unexplained Injury: 1D’s Zayn Malik Nurses Bandaged Hand (PHOTOS)

One Direction's Next Stop
See the boy band touch down in Tokyo
Get well soon, Zayn Malik.

The One Direction star inexplicably sported some heavy bandages on his right hand as he arrived for rehearsals with his bandmates Wednesday afternoon in London.

Wincing in pain, the “Kiss You” singer stepped out of a car while carefully tending to his swollen and bruised fingers.

It’s been a troubling time for the British superstar. Just days before his injury, Malik has been the subject of scathing headlines in the U.K. after he allegedly bedded an Australian waitress behind his girlfriend’s back.

Malik has been dating Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards since last year, but their relationship may have been tarnished for good — the waitress, Courtney Webb, snapped photos of Malik in bed hours after meeting at lavish party held in his London abode, all while Edwards was on tour with Little Mix.

“I definitely don’t think it’s the first time he’s done this. I feel sorry for Perrie — she doesn’t know this is going on. It’s wrong and has to stop,” Webb told The Sun.

A day after the scandal surfaced, Malik and Edwards reportedly met up to patch things up, spending all of Sunday together talking in an Nottingham, U.K. hotel. On Monday, Edwards flashed a smile as she took center stage with her bandmates during a fun-filled concert.

Malik is gearing up for the February kick-off of 1D’s massive Take Me Home tour, which will take the boy band to the U.K., U.S. and Canada.

Tell us: What do you think of Zayn’s dating drama? Should he and Perrie breakup for good?
