Zayn Malik Shoots Down Cheating Rumors: “I Love Perrie Edwards”
Zayn Malik has broken his silence and shot down rumors that he’s cheating on his fiancée Perrie Edwards with a mystery woman. On Wednesday, the One Direction singer tweeted, “I’m 22 years old… I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there’s a lot of jealous f*cks in this world I’m sorry for what it looks like x.” Fan reaction was predictably strong and immediate.
“@zaynmalik YES KING DRAG THESE HOES,” wrote one excited Twitter follower. Another supporter wrote, “Your relationship with Perrie is between both of you & no one else. I’m glad you found someone & hope everything is going well.” And a third person tweeted, “Zayn you don’t need to apologize you didn’t do anything. I love you and Perrie. You are the most perfect couple in this world.” The couple’s shorthand name #Zerrie began trending worldwide on Twitter.
Edwards and Malik became engaged in 2013. “Never been more happy in my life!” tweeted the One Direction singer when his engagement to the Little Mix star was announced. The strong emotional connection between fans and power couple was clear when, days later, a sick #CutForZerrie trend took over Twitter. Last summer, Malik sparked a frenzy when he was seen wearing a ring, prompting rumors that he and Edwards had secretly wed. They’re not married yet. But on Wednesday, he made it very clear that they’re still very much together.
