Rumour had it that Zayn Malik ended his four-year relationship with Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards via a text message, a rumour the denied in a 2015 interview with Fader.
“I have more respect for Perrie than to end anything over 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 in the interview. “She knows that, I know that, and the public should know that as well. I don’t want to explain why or what I did, I just want the public to know I didn’t do that.”
Case closed, right? Not so fast.
As Gossip Cop reports, an upcoming new book written by the members of Little Mix, Our World, contains a passage in which Edwards confirms that the former One Direction star did indeed dump her with a text.
“It was horrible, the worst time in my life,” she writes. “A four-year relationship, two year engagement ended by a simple text message. Just like that. Even though things in my career were going really well, it was incredibly difficult for me.”
Gossip Cop reportedly reached out to a rep for Malik for confirmation, but the rep would only offer the following: “No comment.”
