Her first public words since Zayn Malik split.

While the workweek comes to a near close, it appears that we’re far from closing the book on Zayn Malik’s breakup with Perrie Edwards.

“Perrie is one of the sweetest girls in the world and she’s stood by him thick and thin. But he ended their engagement with one text message and in the two weeks since there’s been complete radio silence between them.”

Guess a phone call would’ve fared better, right?
