Cast your minds back to yesterday and you may just about remember the internet going more than a little crazy over rumours One Direction‘s Zayn Malik was cheating on his fiancé Perrie Edwards.
Where did these rumours come from we hear you cry? Oh, just a super grainy, super blurry photo of Zayn ‘holding hands’ (supposedly) with a ‘mystery blonde’ who wasn’t Perrie and was in fact a gal called Lauren Rich.
NOW, in the least surprising news ever, Zayn has come forward to deny that he’s cheated on his Little Mix girlfriend.
Somebody bring out the party poppers.
Yep, Zayn has taken to Twitter to call rubbish on all the ridiculous rumours and confirm that he is very much in love with a little lady called Perrie Edwards, thanks.
Sadly, he DID forget to mention our name in there too, but we’ll let him off for now.
He wrote: “I’m 22 years old… I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there’s a lot of jealous f**ks in this world I’m sorry for what it looks like x”
These rumours that something bad is afoot in camp #Zerrie came just days after people thought Pezza wasn’t wearing her sparkly engagement ring anymore, even though she very much definitely was.
The rumour mill started turning yesterday when photos went around Twitter supposedly showing Zayn ‘holding hands’ with a mystery girl in Thailand during the lads’ On The Road Again tour.
Because he’d definitely step out with a ‘new’ gal IN PUBLIC AND IN FRONT OF EVERYONE when he’s still dating Perrie. Obviously.
According to some, the pretty blurry shots show Zayn and his glorious man bun of joy ‘holding hands’ with a girl who isn’t Perrie, although let’s be honest, without some sort of close-up and a magnifying glass, there is a large possibility that he is very much not.
As well as photos of the two ‘holding hands’ (let’s take that with a saucepan full of salt), there was also a photo of the gal in question walking down some stairs after Zayn.
GET THAT IN FIFTY SHADES OF GREY.
Reaction on Twitter was mixed, with some getting confused/upset/angry over the idea that Zayn could be cheating, others rubbishing the whole thing and some just debating dying their hair blonde. Ditto.
One user called @HARRYSBRIANNA wrote: “ZAYN WHO’S THAT GIRL EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT.??”
However, @IIBeingKeerll tweeted: “he. Would never cheat a girl. Don’t call urself a fan if u don’t believe. Him.”
You lot also got your investigative hats on to discover that Lauren Rich was the girl in question, after she posted this photo on MazSight with the caption: “Partying with Zayn from One Direction last night #thailand #1D #best #night #patong #phuket.”
Another day, another ridic rumour slayed.
