It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life – but we’ve STILL got even more rumours about Zayn Malik, this time claiming that he’s been banned from following fiancée Perrie Edwards on tour.
Okay, so we know one look at his beautiful face is enough to distract us for approximately 24 hours, but we’re *pretty* sure he’d actually quite like to see his fiancée do well and wouldn’t do anything to throw the girls off course anyway.
He is, after all, a ruddy lovely man.
Any hope that Zayn might have had that he could enjoy the ‘freedom’ of doing whatever the heck he wanted as a ‘normal 22-year-old’ is seemingly gone, as Syco and Columbia Record chiefs have pretty much demanded that he stay put when Perrie goes away.
He’s got no control, no contro-o-o-ol.
Unfortunately for Zayn, bosses do still have something of a hold over him because they own the rights to his solo stuff – AND they did just clear Pezza’s schedule for the couple’s romantic holiday.
A LA source close to the band told The Mirror: “The law has been laid down to Zayn – you cannot follow Perrie around like a puppy dog.
“Senior figures are worried that with Zayn being so lost and confused after his One Direction split, he will just want to hang out with Perrie to make him happy.”
Errr, time-out please. 1) Although we’re guessing this is still a super tough time for Zayn and we still want to metaphorically bathe him in love and support, Zerrie’s holiday snaps don’t *exactly* scream lost and confused little lamb to us.
2) If he is feeling lost, is there some sort of memo that says it’s wrong to want to chill with your girlfriend and be happy? Hmm.
The source added: “One aspect is that he is desperate to show her that their relationship and real and things are back on track despite accusations he cheated on her while in Thailand.
“For Little Mix the next year is vital in terms of their progression. They will tour a new record and promote themselves. They have achieved a strong base following, but they need to convert that into becoming better known.
“Having distractions is not what they need. Perrie already faces dozens of media questions about Zayn, when the focus should be on their music.”
“This is not a case of asking Zayn, it is telling him.”
We’re actually not sure whether to laugh or cry at these rumours, but considering Zerrie are looking stronger than ever right now, we’re going to take them with a saucepan full of salt and a rather hefty eye roll.
Besides, what the heck is wrong with Zayn wanting some support from his girlfriend during this difficult time?
