Last month it was One Direction's Harry Styles with a mystery injury , now his band mate Zayn Malik is walking around with an elaborate series of bandages on his right hand and fingers.
Leaving a London studio with fellow Directioner Louis Tomlinson, Zayn looked glum as he maneuvered his way into a car with a visibly swollen and cut hand, two fingers taped together and a bandage snaking up his wrist.
The cause of the injury remains unknown, but the internet is already buzzing with speculation that it could be related to his disastrous relationship woes.

Referred to as a "love rat" by various tabloids, the singer has been dealing with claims that he cheated on his 19-year-old Little Mix pop star girlfriend Perrie Edwards with an Australian waitress.

We just hope that whatever it was that caused Zayn's hand so much pain didn't inflict a worse injury on anyone else.
