Just when you thought that pretty much everyone had weighed in on Zayn Malik leaving One Direction, Stephen Hawking stepped up to the plate and added this cracking theory.
The genius was beamed into the Sydney Opera House on Saturday night and during the Q&A session, was asked a variety of questions about the universe and other fairly intelligent things. Then one girl stepped up and asked a question that Hawking probably never imagined himself answering.
What do you think is the cosmological effect of Zayn leaving One Direction and consequently breaking the hearts of millions of teenage girls across the world?
Hawking did not disappoint with his response and gave Directioners everywhere hope with his alternate universe theory, claiming that Zayn could well still be in One Direction in an alternate reality (which alarms us, because let’s be honest, one of One Direction is more than enough) but the girl seemed happy enough with the answer, not to mention the fact that in the alternate universe, she and Zayn were married.
