Zayn Malik has called off his engagement with Perrie Edwards.
The former One Direction star has apparently left his fiancée “devasted,” a source told PEOPLE . According to the source, Zayn, 22 contacted Perrie, also 22, two weeks ago and told her it was over.
“She’s been putting on a brave face, as Little Mix have had promotion to do, but she’s obviously devastated,” the source told PEOPLE. “Perrie’s being supported by her bandmates, but she’s really in pieces about this.”
Another source revealed to HollywoodLife.com, they had been struggling for months.
“She’s been touring and he’s been focusing on the second chapter in his career. They barely saw each other and they hadn’t even had sex in over two months. The further they fell apart, the more anxious she got and the more she started pressing him to set a wedding date. She pushed and pushed and finally Zayn told her he didn’t want to get married.”
Zayn and Perrie got engaged in August 2013. The pair have experienced their highs and lows, including when Zayn left One Direction. Rumour has it, he left the band because he believed his relationship with Perrie was in jeopardy.
