ZAYN Malik broke up with Little Mix star Perrie Edwards via TEXT message and the pair haven’t spoken since.
The former One Direction star reportedly broke off his engagement to the heartbroken singer via a single message more than two weeks ago.
The split is said to have come completely out of the blue for Perrie who shared a loved-up shot of the pair together just three weeks ago.
Next to a photo of the beaming star leaning into Zayn, she wrote: “Love ma man!”
â€œBut he ended their engagement with one text message and in the two weeks since thereâ€™s been complete radio silence between them,” a source told The Sun.
â€œWho does that? Sheâ€™s devastated, which everyone understands, but is doing her best to focus on work and to put on a brave face in public.”
The pair, who began dating in 2012 and got engaged the following year, now have to work out what to do with their recently purchased Â£3 million pound home.
The source added: â€œThis was a very serious, major financial purchase. She thought Zayn was committing to their long-term future.â€
Zayn, who has also signed with new management since leaving One Direction, has been seen partying in LA over the last few days, while Perrie has been focusing on promotional duties with Little Mix.
It comes after Perrie, who reportedly canâ€™t believe Zayn dumped her after she stood by him through a number of cheating allegations and supported him when he decided to quit the band, broke her silence on the split during a TV interview on Tuesday.
The star appeared on E! 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?”
Putting on a brave face, 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.”
While Zayn broke his social media silence by posting a photograph of a cut-out Lotus flower resting on a piano as he continues to work on his solo material after quitting One Direction. – Mirror
