Los Angeles - Zayn Malik has broken his Twitter silence for the first time since leaving One Direction.

The 22-year-old singer quit the group last month and posted on social media earlier on Monday to thank the people who have helped him through the tumultuous period.

This post is the first that the One Thing singer has written since 18 March when he tweeted about the cheating rumours that emerged after a picture surfaced of him holding hands with a girl while on tour in Thailand.

Zayn's tweet also follows his first solo appearance since leaving One Direction.

Accompanied by his mother Trisha Malik, the singer stepped out on the red carpet at the annual Asian Awards with a drastic new shaved haircut on Friday night.

He was presented with the gong for Outstanding Contribution to Music by producer Naughty Boy, who is rumoured to be working on the star's solo material.
