They reportedly started seeing each other after sharing a steamy encounter following One Direction’s performance on The X Factor show in November 2011. Later that month, Perrie Edwards addressed the dating rumours where she denied dumping Zayn.
How can I possibly have dumped someone that I barely even know? It’s actually massively embarrassing.
On August 21, 2012, it was reported that Zayn Malik cheated on Perrie Edwards when a video of Zayn allegedly hitting on a girl surfaced online. In September 2012, another cheating rumour emerged. However, two months after, their relationship finally came alive when the pair adopted a puppy together.

He talked about how great their relationship was and how he wanted to get an image of her. Two months later, the pair got engaged and that same month, they walked the red carpet together at One Direction’s “This Is Us” film premiere in London.
On March 2015, things started to go downhill for the couple when more cheating rumours from Malik’s side surfaced. A photo of Zayn Malik with a mystery girl broke the internet which prompted Zayn to declare his love for Perrie on Twitter.
I’m 22 years old. I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there are a lot of jealous fucks in the world. I’m sorry for what it looks like x.

I love her a lot and I always will, and I would never end our relationship over four years like that.
Speaking on the split, Perrie Edwards confirms that the calling off of their engagement was pretty tough. She also confirmed that Zayn Malik dumped her by text.
She said in a statement;
It was horrible, the worst time of my life. A four-year relationship and two years of engagement ended with a simple text message. Just like that. Even though things in my career were going well, it was incredibly difficult for me. After I split with my partner, out of the blue, I had nowhere to go, which was incredibly stressful. For a while, I had no idea what to do.
A year after the split, Zayn Malik was spotted on a date with supermodel Gigi Hadid. Their relationship was confirmed a few weeks later when the singer shared a selfie with his new girlfriend on Instagram.
