BREAKING: It’s all over for Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards

After a two-year-engagement, it's reportedly over for former One Direction member Zayn Malik and his fiancée Perrie Edwards.

Although news of the split has only been confirmed to the media today, it's thought the relationship ended a couple of weeks back. It was Zayn who called things off, leaving Perrie "devastated," a source tells People magazine today.

"She's been putting on a brave face as Little Mix have had promotion to do, but she's obviously devastated," the insider said. "Perrie's being supported by her bandmates, but she's really in pieces about this." 

Speaking about Zayn's reasons for the shock split, another source told Us Weekly that the singer wanted to leave the past behind him. "He just wanted to move on and start over in all ways," the insider revealed.

The couple got engaged in August 2013 and although they have always remained vague about when their wedding would take place, the fact that they reportedly purchased a house together just weeks ago makes the split all the more shocking. According to The Sun, Zayn and Perrie signed the deed on a £3m (€4.1m) mansion just outside London last month.

There's no doubt that 2015 has been a rocky year for the couple. Back in March, Zayn abandoned One Direction's world tour to fly home to Perrie, after a photo of him with his arms around another woman, a fan named Lauren Richardson, emerged online.

The picture was taken in Thailand during the Asian leg of One Direction's On The Run tour, and when another photo appeared online of Zayn holding hands with the same woman, speculation began mounting that he had been cheating on Perrie. He quit the band just days later, and while he and Perrie have presented a united front ever since it seems things just weren't to be.

The pair are both currently in Los Angeles, but according to People's source, they have yet to see one another since the split. However Perrie has definitely been showing Zayn what he's been missing with a series of bikini shots posted to her Twitter yesterday:

Good woman Perrie!
