Zayn Malik and his fiancée Perrie Edwards have ended their engagement after just two years.

According to new reports, the former One Direction band member initiated the split two weeks ago, and told the Little Mix singer that they were done.

Zayn Malik, 22, and Perrie Edwards, 22, got engaged in August 2013.

Perrie Edwards stood by her fiancé earlier this year when he announced his shocking exit from One Direction. His dedication to the relationship, at the time, was cited as a contributing factor in his departure.

Earlier this year, Zayn Malik, who also has a very large tattoo of Perrie Edwards’ face on his upper arm, was accused of cheating on his fiancée.

At the time, Zayn Malik vehemently denied the rumors, tweeting: “I’m 22 years old… I love a girl named Perrie Edwards.”


Zayn Malik has announced he signed a solo record deal with RCA Records months after leaving One Direction.

Zayn Malik, who quit earlier this year saying he wanted to be a “normal 22-year-old”, posted a picture of himself signing a contract with RCA Records.

The former One Direction singer tweeted: “I guess I never explained why I left, it was for this moment to be given the opportunity to show you who i really am! #realmusic #RCA !!”

In a later tweet Zayn Malik wrote: “#REALME”.

Alicia Keys, Mark Ronson, Justin Timberlake and A$AP Rocky are among the acts signed to the label, which is part of Sony Music.

Simon Cowell, who signed One Direction to his label Syco, congratulated Zayn Malik on his new deal.

He tweeted: “We have been working on this for a while and I am pleased to say congratulations to Zayn Malik on signing with RCA Records.

“I believe they are the perfect label for Zayn Malik’s solo career and I am sure whatever they release together will be special.”

Frank Ocean’s producer Malay recently revealed that he had been working with Zayn Malik.

Posting a picture of Zayn Malik with his daughter he wrote: “Benefits of the job. My daughter gets to meet my co-workers, one [of] who happens to be one of her favorites what an amazing soul #zaynmalik.”

Since leaving One Direction, Zayn Malik has also spent time in the studio with Naughty Boy.

The producer, whose real name is Shahid Khan, put a track online featuring Zayn Malik singing over an acoustic guitar after he quit One Direction.


One Direction have denied they will be “taking a break” after their world tour.

Several publications suggest One Direction will “take a breather” after the second leg of their On the Road Again tour and recording their fifth studio album.

The band’s publicist says the story is “pure speculation”.One Direction four piece world tour

A statement from the group’s publicist read: “The story is all pure speculation and not based on any facts.

“The band are due to record. They’re excited about their brand new fifth album and their upcoming tour.”

One Direction’s new album is scheduled for release in November.

Three months ago, One Direction confirmed it would continue as a four-piece after Zayn Malik announced he was leaving to “live like a normal 22-year-old”.

Not long after Zayn Malik’s departure he was seen at a recording studio in London working with Naughty Boy.


Zayn Malik has paid tribute to One Direction at this year’s Asian Awards ceremony, where he made his first solo appearance since leaving the band.

Zayn Malik, 22, was presented with the award for Outstanding Contribution to Music at the fifth annual Asian Awards, held at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel.

Asian Awards celebrate excellence across the global Pan-Asian community.

He also said he was “not really a guy of many words”.

Zayn Malik added: “I’d also like to take this moment to thank four of the best guys that I ever met whilst being in the band and doing all the amazing things that I did.

“Some of the things that we did will stay with me for the rest of my life.”

He ended his speech by saying: “Here’s to the future.”

Zayn Malik left One Direction last month after returning to the UK from the band’s tour having been “signed off with stress”.


Zayn Malik’s first solo song has been taken down, less than a day after it was shared on SoundCloud.

Producer Naughty Boy tweeted a link to the track on March 31, with the words “let the music do the talking”.

The song was uploaded less than a week after Zayn Malik confirmed he was quitting One Direction.

Louis Tomlinson accused Naughty Boy of being “inconsiderate” to fans after he re-tweeted a video about Zayn Malik.

The pair argued on Twitter hours before the demo was made public.

The track on SoundCloud is now unavailable, but it included the caption: “There is nothing but love for what was left behind. That’s why we don’t mind. 😉 #zaughty #zinabad.”

Naughty Boy, whose real name is Shahid Khan, has previously worked with Emeli Sande, Tinie Tempah, Ed Sheeran, Leona Lewis and Rihanna.

The producer tweeted the song hours after having an argument with Zayn Malik’s former One Direction bandmate Louis Tomlinson.

Louis Tomlinson accused the producer of “trying to wind the fans up” after he re-tweeted a video saying “Zaughty will rise”, a reference to working with Zayn Malik.

He later tweeted: “Wow @NaughtyBoyMusic you’re so inconsiderate pal, seriously how old are you? Grow up! #masterofallwisdom.”

So far, Zayn Malik hasn’t commented on the solo material.

As One Direction carries on as a four-piece, Zayn Malik has been removed from the video montage which plays at the beginning of the band’s shows.

Fans in Johannesburg, South Africa, noticed Zayn Malik was missing from the footage at One Direction’s show on March 29.

One Direction’s remaining members say the band is not on the verge of splitting up, despite rumors started on social media.

They will continue as a four-piece after Zayn Malik announced he was leaving the group last week to “live like a normal 22-year-old”.

Zayn Malik’s departure was followed by rumors on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook that One Direction was about to break up.

Liam Payne thanked fans for sticking with the band and for “not thinking it’s finished”.

He tweeted: “I can see a lot of people thanking us for staying but your the real Heros here thanks for not thinking it’s finished.”

One Direction continued their On the Road Again tour and have been playing concerts in South Africa.

They start the European leg of the tour by playing Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium on June 5 and 6.

Zayn Malik left the group last week after flying back to the UK, having been “signed off with stress”.

It was after reports that he had cheated on his 21-year-old fiancée, Perrie Edwards.

Zayn Malik told The Sun that he was “upset” for the group’s fans and he said there was no bad blood between him and his former bandmates, who he said had been “really supportive”.

It’s thought Zayn Malik is working on a solo album with producer Naughty Boy, who has worked on tracks for Emeli Sande, Cheryl Cole and Leona Lewis.


One Directions’ Harry Styles broke down in tears as band took to the stage without Zayn Malik.

On Wednesday, March 25, when the news of Zayn Malik’s decision to quit the band was still breaking around the world, One Direction was performing in Indonesia.

Harry Styles walked around on stage, head in hands as he started to cry.

A statement released by Zayn Malik on March 25 said “it’s time for me to leave”.

It began: “My life with One Direction has been more than I could ever have imagined.

“But, after five years, I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band. I’d like to apologize to the fans if I’ve let anyone down, but I have to do what feels right in my heart.Harry Styles crying on stage in Indonesia

“I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight.

“I know I have four friends for life in Louis, Liam, Harry and Niall. I know they will continue to be the best band in the world.”

The footage of Harry Styles was taken as One Direction performed on stage in Indonesia’s capital Jakarta, the latest stop on their On The Road Again Tour.

Last week it was announced Zayn Malik had been signed off from the current tour with “stress”.

It is unclear from the footage whether Harry Styles, 21, was crying because of the news of Zayn Malik or because fans were showing support by shouting his name.

At one point in the concert Liam Payne reportedly comforted him.

In a black T-shirt and with his hair up in his trademark man bun, Harry Styles wandered around the stage with his head in his hands and wiping away tears.

Liam Payne told his 19.7 million Twitter followers: “So glad to be in bed after a long and strange 24 hours.”

Harry Styles sent a simple message to his 24.1 million Twitter followers, which read: “All the love as always. H.”

Louis Tomlinson has also tweeted: “Your support has been incredible, truly incredible so thank you so much!

“Been a crazy couple of days but know that we are going to work harder than ever to deliver the best album we’ve ever made for you guys!”

Niall Horan was the last to tweet. He said: “Been a mad few days and your support has been incredible as per usual! This in turn Spurs us on to make the best music we possibly can.

“Put on great shows / tours for you guys. You are the best fans in the world and you deserve nothing less from us!

“The lads and I arrived in South Africa this morning. We cannot wait to see all you SA fans for the first time and have great shows.”

It’s not the first time Harry Styles has appeared to cry on stage.

Footage showed him snivelling at a gig in Melbourne, Australia, in 2013 while singing Over Again.

One Direction released a statement on March 25 confirming to fans that the band would continue as a four-piece.

They will record their fifth album in Zayn Malik’s absence and will continue with the remaining dates on the band’s world tour.

Zayn Malik admits he has “let the fans down” by leaving One Direction.

The 22-year-old singer announced he was quitting the band on March 25.

In an interview with The Sun just hours after announcing he was leaving the band, Zayn Malik said: “I can’t do this anymore.”

Zayn Malik admitted his decision was “crazy and wild and a bit mad”.

“But I’ve never felt more in control in my life. I feel like I’m doing what’s right, right by myself and right by the boys.”

He denied there were any rifts between the band members, saying those claims “couldn’t be more wrong”.Zayn Malik quits One Direction

Zayn Malik also confessed he had wanted out of the band for some time.

He said: “You know, I did try to do something that I wasn’t happy doing for a while, for the sake of maybe other people.

“Basically, I’m only upset [because] I feel like I may have let them down.

“It’s not that I’ve turned my back on them [the fans] or anything, it’s just that I just can’t do that anymore because it’s not real to me.”

Zayn Malik also dismissed rumors it was the beginning of the end for the band, who were put together on The X Factor in 2010.

He refused to comment on speculation he could return in the future.

Zayn Malik quit the globally-successful pop group a week after walking away from their world tour due to “stress”.

It came after he was pictured with his arm around a blonde girl in Thailand, prompting speculation he had cheated on his fiancée, Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards.

Immediately after the announcement Zayn Malik flew back to the UK, and wrote on Twitter: “I’m 22 years old… I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there’s a lot of jealous [people] in this world. I’m sorry for what it looks like.”

Announcing he was leaving One Direction for good on March 25, Zayn Malik said: “After five years, I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band.”

In the interview with The Sun, Zayn Malik said his two-year engagement to Perrie Edwards had not been broken off.

He described Perrie Edwards as “a good girl” who was “supportive” of his decision.

Meanwhile, Zayn Malik has reportedly visited a west London recording studio to work on solo material with Naughty Boy; who helped launch the careers of Emeli Sande and Sam Smith.

Zayn Malik has left One Direction, the band have confirmed in a statement.

Zayn Malik said: “My life with One Direction has been more than I could ever have imagined. But, after five years, I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band.

“I’d like to apologize to the fans if I’ve let anyone down, but I have to do what feels right.”

One Direction will continue their world tour as a four piece and record a fifth album later this year.

A photo had earlier emerged of Zayn Malik holding another woman around the waist.

A second photo, taken from behind, showed Zayn Malik standing close to the woman. Their hands and arms looked as though they were linked.

In a statement, the rest of the group said: “We’re really sad to see Zayn go, but we totally respect his decision and send him all our love for the future.

“The past five years have been beyond amazing – we’ve gone through so much together, so we will always be friends.

“The four of us will now continue. We’re looking forward to recording the new album and seeing all the fans on the next stage of the world tour.”

Simon Cowell, who discovered the boyband on The X Factor, said: “I would like to say thank you to Zayn for everything he has done for One Direction.

“Since I first met Zayn in 2010, I have grown very, very fond – and immensely proud – of him. I have seen him grow in confidence and I am truly sorry to see him leave.

“As for One Direction, fans can rest assured that Niall, Liam, Harry and Louis are hugely excited about the future of the band.”

Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson signed with Simon Cowell’s record label Syco Records in 2010 after finishing third on The X Factor.

He flew to the UK days after pictures emerged showing him with another woman in Thailand.

According to new reports, Zayn Malik is no longer interested in being part of One Direction and has consulted his lawyers about quitting.

Zayn Malik has left One Direction’s Asia tour and has returned to the UK to recover from stress.

An One Direction statement said: “Zayn has been signed off with stress and is flying back to the UK to recuperate.

“The band wish him well and will continue with their performances in Manila and Jakarta.”

On March 18, Zayn Malik declared his love for his fiancée, Little Mix star Perrie Edwards, after photos emerged of him with his arm around another woman.

Zayn Malik told his Twitter followers on March 18: “I’m 22 years old … I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there’s a lot of jealous [people] in this world I’m sorry for what it looks like x.”

The singer along with his bandmate Louis Tomlinson had faced losing $4,450 each if they were caught using, or promoting, illegal drugs in Manila, Philippines.

Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson were asked to post bonds of 200,000 pesos ($4,450) each for a special work permit, ahead of two concerts in the Philippine capital this weekend.

The move came after a video appeared last year of Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson both smoking what they called “a joint” in Peru.

One Direction’s Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson have to post a cash bond to prevent using, or promoting, illegal drugs in Manila.

Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson have been asked to post bonds of 200,000 ($4,450) pesos each for a special work permit, ahead of two concerts in the Philippine capital this weekend.

Local immigration said the bond was intended “to protect public interest”.

It follows a video leaked last May in which Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson were shown allegedly smoking cannabis in Peru.

Elaine Tan, of the Philippine Bureau of Immigration, said the band would be prevented from performing if producers fail to post the cash bond before the concert.

The amount includes an additional processing fee of 20,000 pesos.One Direction’s Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson forced to pay Philippines drug bond

“The condition is intended to protect the public interest should the band members commit any violation during their stay in the Philippines,” said Elaine Tan.

It is understood a concert producer went to the Immigration Bureau on March 18 to post the bonds, said Christine Ching, a spokeswoman of Anti-Drugs Advocate.

One Direction has also called on the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency to send officers to monitor the band.

“We want to see their pure, raw, untainted talent,” said Christine Ching, adding that there was concern about the popular band’s influence on Filipino youth.

She said the group had met with concert producers, and they had agreed to allow government drug agencies and advocate groups to monitor band members.

One Direction is due to play at the seaside Mall of Asia Concert Grounds on March 21 and 22.

After the leak emerged last year, One Direction’s Liam Payne – who was not seen in the video – tweeted an apology: “I love my boys and maybe things have gone a little sideways. I apologize for that.”

“We are only in our 20s and we all do stupid things at this age,” Liam Payne wrote.

One Direction star Harry Styles’ latest on stage incident saw him nearly set himself on fire during the band’s second Chicago show.

The near-miss occurred when Harry Styles walked into a flaming pyrotechnic on the stage.

But luckily for Harry Styles, his bandmate Zayn Malik was there to warn and stop the 19-year old from singeing off his famous floppy hair.

The would-be accident occurred during the group’s performance of Teenage Dirtbag – the same song that saw Harry Styles running off stage to be sick a week earlier in Detroit.

The song went off with out a hitch, with a much more energetic Harry Styles running around the stage and waving at fans.

But as the pop song came to a close, the teenager picked up a white towel and wrapped it round his head as he made his way towards the side of the stage, and the impressive flame.

And conscious of the danger that lay in Harry Styles’, Zayn Malik, 20, attempted to make his friend aware of the fact he was heading towards a fiery ending.

Calling out and pointing didn’t work thanks to the raucous cheers of the thousands of fans watching the show, so Bradford boy Zayn Malik ran towards Harry Styles and pulled him back just seconds before he set himself alight.

Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne watched as their brave bandmate saved Harry Styles from a life-threatening injury, and seemed to chuckle at their mate’s clumsy behavior.

One Direction have 15 more U.S. dates on their Take Me Home world tour before flying to Australia, so hopefully Harry Styles will survive before they head Down Under.
