Zayn Malik net worth: Zayn Malik is a British musician who has a net worth of $10 million. Zayn Malik, also known as Zain Javadd Malik, was born in Bradford, West Yorkshire, England, and grew up in East Bowling. He graduated from Tong High School. His school years were less than ideal, as his mixed Pakistani and Irish/English often made him the recipient of jokes and unkind behavior. He auditioned for "The X Factor" because he was interested in the experience. He is a fan of rap and R&B, and cites Bruno Mars as one of his favorite artists. He was not chosen to advance as a solo artist while on "The X Factor", but he was paired with four other musicians to form the boy band, One Direction. One Direction has gone on to become one of the most popular bands to come out of the UK in decades. To date, they have sold 19 million singles and 10 million albums.
