Former One Direction member Zayn Malik goes solo in another aspect—his love life—as entertainment websites confirm the hunk broke his engagement with fiancée Perrie Edwards. It can be recalled that Malik and Edwards were engaged on August 2013, breaking the hearts of many fans throughout the world.
The 22-year-old Malik reportedly called Edwards, also a singer of English band Little Mix, two weeks ago to tell her it was over.
In a report from People, a source was quoted describing how Edwards took the news. “She’s been putting on a brave face, as Little Mix have had promotion to do, but she’s obviously devastated.”
“Perrie’s being supported by her bandmates, but she’s really in pieces about this,” the source continued saying.
When asked on how she was doing after the break-up news broke out, Edwards, also 22, answered, “I’m good, thank you.”
Perrie Edwards may be nursing a broken heart, but she seems to be brave enough to accept it and move on. In a latest photo posted on Instagram by her bandmate Jesy Nelson, it is settled the singer was not sporting her engagement ring.
A Love Quickly Waned?
Malik and Edwards were ordinary when it comes to their romance. They had their own share of struggles. Before the split, the One Direction heartthrob was once rumored to have cheated on Edwards. Malik then expressed frustration via Twitter.
I'm 22 years old… I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there's a lot of jealous fucks in this world I'm sorry for what it looks like x

Shortly after his tweet, the couple was seen together in an Instagram photo, having the time of their life in a getaway.
Zayn Malik recently announced he signed a contract with RCA Records, months after One Direction announced he was leaving the band to live a private life.
