Zayn Malik Apparently Calls Off Engagement To Perrie Edwards

Zayn Malik And Perrie Edwards Definitely Off, She Confirms

The Debrief: The former X Factor lovebirds are now both single after a two-year engagement...

UPDATE: Going back to work after a hefty break-up can be a blessing and a curse; on the one hand you’re getting stuck into the world of work, which is full off distractions such as ‘why is the printer acting like such a bitch?’ and ‘How on earth will I reply to all these emails?’.

On the other? Someone’s going to interrupt your peaceful time out from crying all your make-up off with a reminder of your ex. This very thing happened to, um, Perrie Edwards, who hasn’t even really got the benefit of a crappy printer to take her mind off from her split from Zayn Malik.

Promoting their new single Black Magic and the album Get Weird, Perrie was asked the inevitable by E!: how she was doing following the split as it must be a rough old time right now.

Her reply? ‘I’m good, thank you.’

Which pretty much confirms that the break-up has definitely happened. Bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock then interjected: ‘Yeah, we don’t really want to talk about it’ and Jesy Nelson then insisted: ‘Yeah, we’re here to get our nails done.’

Another day, another massive dramarama in the One Direction camp. Or ex One Direction camp that is.

Zayn Malik, the artist formerly known as the quiet-but-beautiful one in One Direction, has reportedly called off his two-year engagement to Little Mix's Perrie Edwards say People Magazine.

A source (who sounds like a really cool dude) told the mag that Perrie has 'Been putting on a brave face as Little Mix have had promotion to do, but she's obviously devastated.'

Over on Twitter, Directioners and Little Mixers (Little Mixes?) are FREAKING THE HELL OUT. They're posting pictures of Perrie wearing her engagement ring yesterday, claiming it's a ruse to stop people talking about Louis and his baby. Gah. Either way, sad times guys, sad times.
