Zayn Malik has told how he has been kicked off Tinder after being accused of catfishing.

The former One Direction star has admitted he's had no good matches on the dating app, because nobody believes it's really him.

“It’s not been too successful for me, I’ll be honest,” he told Nylon magazine. “Everyone accused me of catfishing. They’re like, ‘What are you using Zayn Malik’s pictures for?’ I’ve been kicked off once or twice.”

Zayn, who shares three-year-old daughter Kahi with Gigi Hadid, admitted he isn't too bothered though; he's enjoying being single for the moment.

"From 17 to 21, I was in a relationship," he said of his engagement to Little Mix star Perrie Edwards. "I didn't know anything about anything at that point. I thought I did, because I was 21. I was legally allowed to do everything, but I didn't know s**t."

He continued, "From 21 to 27, I was with Gi, and we had a kid, and I didn't really take much time to get to know myself."

Now 31, Zayn lives with Khai on a farm in Pennsylvania.

"Since I've had my daughter, the main thing in my mind is trying to be a good example to her," he said recently. "I want her to be able to look at me and be like, 'My dad's doing this.' I'm really content and happy with being single for the first time in my life."
