Zayn Malik Shares Photo Of Him Cuddling With Mystery Girl On Instagram

by | PopCrush

Cue the rumor mill—and make way for the trail of broken hearts.

Zayn Malik crushed the pining hearts of Zerrie fans everywhere Saturday evening when the former One Direction bandmate posted a rather mysterious selfie of him literally in the arms of a mystery girl on Instagram.

The black and white snap shows the singer, who is currently working on a solo career, snuggling up to a young blonde woman whose identity has yet to be confirmed. (Much to the chagrin of his 3.5 million followers, Zayn failed to tag his lady-friend, which is simply poor social media etiquette if you ask me.) However, a number of internet sleuths seem to be quite convinced that the mystery babe is none other than 22-year-old actress Gage Golightly from MTV’s hit show, Teen Wolf. You be the judge. (And yes, the poor girl is already receiving hate tweets over this, and no, it’s not even confirmed to be her… so knock it off!)

Regardless of who the girl in the photo is, with his cheek pressed against hers, his arm wrapped affectionately over her shoulders, and making a kissy face to boot, the photo and its lack of details may be cryptic, but it’s clear to see that love is in the air. Whether its platonic or not is still to be discovered, though it seems pretty obvious.

The photo comes just weeks after Malik’s much-publicized and emotionally-tolling (for the fans, of course) split from Little Mix member Perrie Edwards, to whom he had reportedly been engaged. So far, neither Perrie nor Little Mix have commented on the photo.
