"It's a lot of pressure. I think that my situation was really unique, I had family with me," Nick told ET while discussing Zayn's departure. "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."
"I feel for the fans, and totally understand fame as well and what he's going through, but all the best to all of them," he added.
The Jonas Brothers -- which besides Nick included his older brothers Joe, 25, and Kevin, 27 -- officially split in October 2013 after selling over eight million albums worldwide. Nick, 22, has since embarked on a successful solo career, most notable for his huge radio hit "Jealous."
