Zayn Malik made a surprise appearance at Kylie Jenner's 18th birthday party on Sunday night, just days after liking one of her photos on Twitter. The 22-year-old was pictured leaving Bootsy Bellows nightclub in Hollywood, where the teen was celebrating her milestone birthday with her family and friends.
The Bradford-born star appeared in high spirits as he left the club wearing a blue Louis Vuitton camouflage print jacket and jeans, and delighted fans who had gathered in the hope of a glimpse at the Kardashian and Jenner clan.

Zayn Malik was pictured leaving Kylie Jenner's birthday party
One fan account for the Jenner family confirmed the sighting, tweeting: "CONFIRMED: Zayn Malik made an appearance at Kylie's after party. #JennerUpdates."
Another fan who goes by the moniker Stalker Sarah tweeted: "Nice seeing you tonight @zaynmalik."
Zayn has been spending time "chillin" in Los Angeles since news broke that he had ended his engagement to Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards three weeks ago. He appears to have struck up a friendship with Kylie and her older sister Khloé Kardashian online following the split – adding a photo of Kylie to his favourite tweets before following Khloé on the social networking site.

His actions prompted many fans to question whether Zayn was interested in dating one of them, however Kylie is currently in a relationship with rapper Tyga, while Khloé is reportedly dating NBA player James Harden, who was also pictured at Kylie's birthday celebrations.
If the rumours are true then Zayn would not be the only One Direction singer to be interested in the Jenner sisters; his former bandmate Harry Styles famously dated Kylie's older sister Kendall Jenner for three months in 2014.
Zayn is said to have had no contact with Perrie since ending their relationship in July, despite the fact that she is also in Los Angeles on a promotional tour with Little Mix. The 22-year-old has been putting on a brave face although she is reportedly "devastated" by the split, and joined her bandmates to party in Las Vegas over the weekend in a bid to get over her heartbreak.
