Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards Split, Call Off Engagement

Say it ain’t so: yet another couple has called it quits (just adding to yesterday’s Love Is Dead train), and this one is a doozy.

Newly solo Zayn Malik and fiancée Perrie Edwards ended their engagement two weeks ago.

The former One Direction member, who signed his solo record deal with RCA records just last week, apparently broke up with the 22-year-old singer two weeks ago leaving her “devastated.”

A source told People, “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.”

No confirmation if his record deal and his bachelor status are connected or not, but it seems like a douchebag move nonetheless. It also could explain why Malik’s been spotted out and about West Hollywood a couple nights last week with his entourage – perhaps he’s single, and ready to mingle?

Malik and Edwards have been engaged since August 2013, and though they were young, some people (like Liam Payne) were alleging that she was part of his reason for leaving the band. It was even rumored that Malik and Edwards had already wed back in April, but Edwards herself debunked those rumors when she said (jokingly) during an interview, “I’m sick of getting asked, ‘When is the wedding…?’ I’ll get married when I’m bloody ready!”

Let us also not forget that it was speculated that Malik cheated on Edwards with a Swedish model Martina Olsson and/or another girl Lauren Rich whilst in Thailand, just before he left the band. Long gone are the days when Malik stood up for himself and Edwards and slammed the “jealous fucks”:
