‘Might give the game away’ Perrie and new beau have certain RULES

After spending months fielding questions over her past relationship with Zayn Malik, it looks like Perrie has thrown the press and public a signal that she has officially moved on.

The Shout Out to My Ex sent the rumour mill into overdrive this week after a source close to the singer revealed that she was growing close to England and Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

"It’s very early days between Perrie and Alex," admitted the insider before acknowledging that there's a definite spark between the pair.

“There’s certainly some chemistry there and they’ve enjoyed spending time together." 

It sounds like Perrie's still feeling pretty fragile following the fall-out from her last high-profile relationship, with the source adding: "After what happened with Zayn, Perrie doesn’t want her love life to become public knowledge."

Owing to this, the new couple have made the decision to avoid certain potential pitfalls which may put the brakes on their burgeoning romance.

“Both are keen to keep the relationship on the down low, they don’t follow each other on social media as they know a connection might give the game away."

23-year-old Perrie has been spotted supporting her new boyfriend at the Arsenal stadium in recent weeks.
