Zayn Malik And Perrie Edwards Split, End Engagement: Singer Dumped Little Mix Songstress Two Weeks Ago
The breakup was first reported by People, and we’re told that the reliable outlet accurately described the situation when it called Edwards “devastated” and “in pieces.” Malik dumped the Little Mix singer two weeks ago, and while both stars are currently in Los Angeles, they haven’t seen each other. And, in an Instagram photo from Monday, Edwards is not wearing her engagement ring.
The split news comes a month after One Direction fans actually encouraged Malik to break up with his longtime girlfriend. As Gossip Cop reported, fans trended “#CANCELYOURENGAGEMENTZAYN” in the United States and worldwide. In response, more supportive Directioners started trending “#RespectZayn.”
And in June, Edwards seemed to be frustrated over the attention the engagement had brought, saying she’d “get married when I’m bloody ready.” Indeed, Gossip Cop has busted false marriage and wedding rumors, including one in early June that was sparked after Edwards called herself “Perrie Malik.”
In May, Malik’s former One Direction bandmate Liam Payne claimed Edwards was the reason he left the group, saying Malik wanted to spend more time with his girl. And in the immediate aftermath of his exit in March, the now-former couple went on vacation together. Around that time, the relationship was dogged by cheating rumors, leading Malik to tweet, “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,” while Edwards posted the kissing photo seen above.
As Gossip Cop reported at the time, Malik and Edwards became engaged two years ago, in August 2013. Last week, he confirmed he signed a solo record deal with RCA. TELL US: What do you think of Malik calling off his engagement to Edwards?
