You knew it, we knew it, everybody knew it, but now we have it in black and white, pure and simple: ZAYN MALIK DID NOT SLEEP WITH LAUREN RICHARDSON IN THAILAND.
Phew, can we all just draw a line under it now?
Despite teasing that what happened between herself and the former One Direction star was “a long story” as she geared up for her grand appearance on ITV2′s reality show Love Island, she has now confirmed to The Mirror that she and Zayn didn’t do anything more than pose for a picture.
Sounds juicy, babes, tell us more.
She explained that she saw Zayn and his then-bandmate Louis Tomlinson on a night out, and all she ever wanted was a pic, sharing: “I just thought they are in touching distance so I just went over.
“I said, ‘Can I have a picture?’ And he said, ‘No problem’.
“In my caption I said, ‘Partying with 1D’. It was an innocent picture, that’s the crazy thing. People think more went on, that’s going to be the funniest thing about it when they go, ‘Don’t we look stupid now we’ve blown it out of context’.”
We don’t want to toot our own horn or anything, but we always kinda knew that nothing more went on between them.
Still, 26-year-old Lauren faced the wrath from some of Zayn and his fiancee, Perrie Edwards’, fans, adding: “It got bad. There were death threats, people saying I’m a homewrecker, or writing, ‘I want to find you’.
“There was a lot of hate. I was scared. You think, ‘Are they going to find me?’”
The blonde babe previously insisted that she signed up to the new TV show to share her side of the story from that night in Thailand, but considering she’s just said that they posed for a pic and then went their separate ways, it doesn’t sound like it’s going to be the most interesting of tales.
