“There was a lot of … politics going on,” Zayn said on a new episode of the ‘Call Her Daddy’ podcast. “Certain people were doing certain things, certain people didn’t want to sign contracts, so I knew something was happening, so I just got ahead of the curve. I was like, ‘I’m just going to get out of here. I think this is done.'”
