However, in July 2015, Perrie Edwards revealed that Zayn Malik broke up with her through a text message. She describes it as the worst time in her life. "A four-year relationship, two-year engagement ended by a simple text message. Just like that," she wrote in Lil Mix's book according to Daily Mail.
However, Zayn Malik denied that he ended the relationship with Perrie Edwards with a text message. "I love her a lot, and I always will, and I would never end our relationship over four years like that," he said according to Fader magazine. He added that he has more respect for his former girlfriend than that.
In 2016, Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid became an item. Though the couple seemed to be picture-perfect in love, rumors had it that the relationship is on the rocks. Recently, Perrie Edwards is linked to Arsenal soccer player Alex Oxlade-Chamberlaine.
