Having finally gone public with Skins star Luke Pasqualino, it seems Perrie Edwards is finally ready to address some of the lingering questions which surround her last big romance.
Expressing herself through Little Mix’s new book, Our World, the 23-year-old pop star confirmed that Zayn Malik did call off their high profile engagement via text.
Describing the 2015 breakup as the “worst time” of her life, Perrie wrote: “It was horrible…A four-year relationship, two year engagement ended by a simple text message.”
“Just like that. Even though things in my career were going really well, it was incredibly difficult for me.”
The leaked passage stands in stark contrast with the former One Direction star’s version of events.
Zayn previously told The Fader: “I have more respect for Perrie than to end anything over text message. I love her a lot, and I always will, and I would never end our relationship over four years like that.”
“She knows that, I know that, and the public should know that as well. I don’t want to explain why or what I did, I just want the public to know I didn’t do that.”
Perrie’s claims have garnered a huge reaction online, with a “PerrieExposedZaynParty” hashtag trending on Twitter.
