One Direction's Zayn Malik has been photographed in Los Angeles hobbling around on a pair of crutches. The pictures, taken yesterday, show a glum-looking Zayn and his One Direction bandmates Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne arriving for a flight at LAX airport.

It's thought that 19-year-old Zayn may have injured himself at this week's MTV Video Music Awards, or at one of the after-parties. The boys hung out with Justin Bieber after the ceremony, during which they picked up an incredible three awards. The morning after, Justin posted a picture on his Twitter page of himself with Niall and Zayn, saying: "Chillin with the homes" (sic).

Just what did you do to him, Justin? If you need a nurse, Zayn… RM
