Did Zayn Malik Break Up With Perrie Edwards Via Text?

by | PopCrush

It’s been two days since news broke that Zayn Malik had ended his engagement with Perrie Edwards, and details are still rolling in. Rumors abound as well — and one that keeps popping up is particularly rough: Zayn may have dumped Perrie via text.

UK tabloid The Sun claims that a source tells them the ex-One Direction member made the cleanest break possible, tearing their engagement asunder with just one single message. Says this anonymous source (friend? PR rep? Eavesdropping dog walker?) “It’s unbelievable, he’s an immature little boy with no thought for anyone else’s feelings. Perrie is one of the sweetest girls in the world and she’s stood by him through thick and thin. But he ended their engagement with one text message and in the two weeks since there’s been complete radio silence between them.”

The source also says Perrie is “devastated” but putting on “a brave face in public.” We know this last part is undoubtably accurate, as she held it together in a Tuesday E! interview when a reporter asked how she was handling everything. The Sun also published a photos of Zayn living that L.A. club life (as a recent tweet of his says, “LA chillin” indeed) and a photo of two beaming, shot glass-toasting women who supposedly hung out with Zayn that same night. Check those out here.

If this rumor is true, it’s totally like the time on Sex and the City when Carrie Bradshaw was dumped via a Post-It that said “I’m sorry, I can’t, don’t hate me.” Except a thousand times worse, because they dated for almost four years and the Little Mix member endured “Perrie is Yoko!”  jeers even in their happier times.

Meanwhile, Zayn was feeling chatty on Twitter yesterday (August 5). He lamented that “You just can’t do enough for some people, I guess,” though it’s unclear whether the subtweet was directed at industry folks, Perrie or fans. Then he said it’s “musictime,” and made two promises that he’s cooking up something new following his new record deal.

Are you team Zayn, team Perrie or team “I hope everyone moves on and finds someone great”? Let us know in the comments.
