The 22-year-old heartthrob reportedly ended it with the
Little Mix performer nearly two weeks ago, leaving Edwards “devastated.”
"She's been putting on a brave face as Little Mix have
had promotion to do,” a source told People
magazine, which first broke the news.
Edwards has already shed her ring as evident in a
photograph posted to Instagram by her bandmate, Jesy Nelson.
After dating for a year, the couple got engaged, but their
relationship has experienced very public ups and downs ever since.
Earlier this year, rumors swirled that Malik reportedly cheated
on Edwards. However, the singer quickly took to Twitter to deny any wrongdoing.
“I love a girl named Perrie Edwards,” he wrote in March of 2015. “And there's a
lot of jealous f**ks in this world I'm sorry for what it looks like.”
Less than a month later, shortly after Malik quit One
Direction, he and Edwards displayed tons of PDA during a romantic getaway.
While the relationship has been relatively quiet during
recent months, Malik has been garnering headlines of his own with news that he
signed a deal with RCA Records to make “#realmusic.”
Meanwhile, One Direction has since bounced back after Malik’s departure.
They recently released a new hit single, and took to the Good Morning America stage to address the news that Louis Tomlinson
is going to be a father. Watch below:
