Zayn Malik may have made one snazzy move too many over the weekend - the One Direction heartthrob turned up to LAX airport in crutches.

No word about how the handsome Malik sustained the injury, but one report suggests a tentative link to an associate of Justin Bieber

Zimbio are reporting that a mate of Bieber, who hooked up with our own Niall Horan and Malik over the weekend, might have played an accidental role in the mishap.

They quote a tweet from Alfredo Flores, who sent Malik the following message:

"feel better bro. I still feel bad... get home safe and we'll see you boys next week"

Also at LAX looking as happy as a Cheshire cat was Horan, who looked very fresh-faced and carefree as the band prepared to return to England.
