HEARTBROKEN Perrie Edwards has broken her silence following news Zayn Malik broke off their engagement.
The star appeared on E! in Los Angeles on Tuesday with the rest of her Little Mix bandmates and was asked how she was coping.
“Perrie, obviously I know it’s a very tough time for you with the news breaking today about you and Zayn, so your fans I know are heartbroken,” the presenter said. “Everyone just kind of wants to know how you’re feeling?”
Looking like she was on the verge of tears, the singer replied: “I’m good, thank you.”
Bandmate Leigh-Anne then came to her rescue and chipped in: “We don’t really want to talk about it.”
“You have your girls and I’m sure they’re being a great support,” the presenter continued.
Earlier in the day the 22-year-old was seen cutting a glum figure as she made her first public appearance since it emerged her relationship with Zayn was over.
After spending time in the studio the girls were then seen getting frozen yogurt and blonde beauty Perrie, who was dressed in daisy duke shorts and a white blouse, failed to raise a smile as she hid behind her glasses.
On Monday a source confirmed that the former One Direction singer ended the pair’s relationship two weeks ago, leaving Perrie “devastated”.
“She’s been putting on a brave face as Little Mix have had promotion to do, but she’s obviously devastated,” they told People magazine.
“Perrie’s being supported by her bandmates,” the source added, “but she’s really in pieces about this.”
Perrie and Zayn first met in 2011 and started dating in 2012, before the pop pair got engaged in 2013.
Zayn is still yet to publicly comment on the split.
The Little Mix star posted the couple’s last selfie together just three weeks ago, showing her leaning in to her man smiling, as he pouts at the camera.
Showing no signs it was over, Perrie captioned it: “Love ma man!” – Mirror
