Ashley isn't the only fellow boy band member to react to news of Zayn's departure.
Nick Jonas told ET that he understands why the 22-year-old singer wants to go solo
. "It's a lot of pressure. I think that my situation was really unique, I had family with me," the former Jonas Brothers member
said. "I feel like it is a tough world already, and I was thankful to have family and walk through it with them, but it's all about how you balance it, and trying to implement a few moments of normalcy and quietness in a really crazy ride."
