Perrie Edwards is officially moving on from her ex-fiance, Zayn Malik, at least in the digital realm.

It appears that Perrie’s deleted all photos of Zayn from her Instagram, and she’s unfollowed him from the photo app —two moves we fully respect and encourage. Breakups are hard enough on their own, but to have your every move dissected by the public while you suffer through immense heartbreak is a specific, painful kind of torture. And it’s only made that much worse when your ex is already publicly liking photos of other famous women on Twitter. Perrie doesn’t need those photo reminders in her life right now.

Details about their sudden breakup remain scant, but if reports are to be believed, it looks like Zayn might have broken up with Perrie (who he dated steadily for over three years and was engaged to for two) via text. Just a few weeks ago, Zayn surprised Perrie on her birthday with a romantic dinner for two. He followed this up by reportedly blindsiding her with a break up a week later. Ugh.

Thankfully, the rest of Little Mix have shown their support by shutting down a reporter’s invasive questioning that took place mere hours after news of #Zerrie’s split hit the web. Leigh-Anne also distracted paparazzi from trying to get a shot of Perrie in her post-breakup misery.

Do you guys remember what song Perrie auditioned with for X Factor? It was Alanis Morissette’s scathing “You Oughta Know.” Is it too soon to request that she do a full studio version of the cover, and release an accompanying music video with a Zayn lookalike?
