Former One Direction member Zayn Malik, 22, has called off his engagement with Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards, also 22. Sources say he called off the engagement that has left Perrie “Completely devastated’ two weeks ago.
“She’s been putting on a brave face as Little Mix have had promotion to do, but she’s obviously devastated,”
the source tells PEOPLE Magazine.
“Perrie’s being supported by her bandmates, but she’s really in pieces about this.”
The two teenage heart-throbs got engaged in August of 2013, pleasing millions of One Direction fans.
Although they have had their rough times, Edwards stood by Malik as he made the decision to quit the chart-topping band in March.
“He wanted to go and spend some time with his family and missus,”
former bandmate Liam Payne said in May.
After getting engaged, the couple were hit by rumours about when they would wed, but never set concrete plans.
To make matters worse, Perrie had to go straight into promotion for the band’s new single Black Magic.
She has flown to Los Angeles with her Little Mix bandmates but the insider told MailOnline the timing could not be worse. The source also said:
‘Perrie is being a trooper about it and putting on a brave face but she’s devastated. She’s doesn’t know what he’s thinking. She’s going to go out and promote the new single but obviously the timing could not be worse, especially when she’s going to be doing so many interviews.’
Perrie has since taken off her engagement ring, as seen in a few recent Instagram posts.
They are both currently in LA, but according to sources, they haven’t seen each other.
