Perrie Edwards Filmed “Love Me Like You” Video BEFORE Zayn Malik Split (Exclusive)
The highly-anticipated “Love Me Like You” music video premiered on Friday. It’s already racked up nearly 500,000 views on YouTube. But as fans watch and rewatch, one thing has become very noticeable: the diamond engagement ring clearly visible on Edwards’ left hand.
That’s led to a lot of questions on social media. Was it Edwards’ ACTUAL engagement ring or a prop? Why would she wear it if she and Malik split? Was she trying to send a message to Malik through the sparkly bauble and the song’s lovesick lyrics? And when was this video filmed, anyway?
Gossip Cop did some investigating, and a source confirms that Edwards is indeed sporting her actual engagement ring from Malik, because the video was shot before they broke up in early August. It’s very common for music videos to be filmed weeks and months before their eventual release, which is what Little Mix opted to do here. Unfortunately, unforeseen events after the shoot was finished means Edwards is now stuck showing off her ex-fiancée’s ring nearly two months after the split.
The way the timing worked out is unfortunate, particularly since Edwards was said to be blindsided and devastated when Malik ended their engagement. Or perhaps the clip can be looked back on as a fond memory of special times. Check out the video below, and tell us what you think.
