It’s confirmed! Not only were those pictures really of Zayn Malik holding hands with someone other than his fiancee Perrie Edwards, but the now identified mystery girl confirms she was ‘partying’ with the One Direction star.
Zayn Malik, 22, has been caught red-handed with a new girl named Lauren Rich. The pretty blonde is the same girl he photographed holding hands with at a night club, and now a new photograph of the two cuddling from that very same night has revealed the truth about their time together in Thailand. Uh oh!
Zayn Malik’s Mystery Girl Identified: Lauren Rich
What would Perrie Edwards think of this photo? Nothing good, that’s for sure.
A new photo of Zayn and his “mystery” girl — real name Lauren Rich according to her social media accounts — has surfaced, and it’s pretty damning evidence. In the photo, Zayn has his arm wrapped around Lauren with his hand gently resting on her lower abdomen as she rests her hands over his. They look very cozy!
“Partying with Zayn from One Direction last night,” Lauren captioned the photo, along with a heart-eyes emoji and the hashtags saying that it was the “best night.”
This new picture, posted on Instagram on March 18, confirms that the previous set of photos showing the pair holding hands as they leave a night club in Thailand are definitely of Zayn. Sorry, Directioners!
One scroll through Lauren’s Instagram account shows that she really likes guys with tattoos, and she even asked Santa for one for Christmas. It’s a little late, but it sure looks like she finally got what she wanted!
Zayn’s Fans Didn’t Think It Was Him
When the pictures of Zayn and Lauren holding hands first hit the internet, Directioners everywhere denied that it was really their favorite 1D singer because of his lack of tattoos. Unfortunately, as HollywoodLife.com previously reported, you can very clearly see many of Zayn’s notable tattoos in the photos.
Even worse, it’s still unclear what this means for Zayn and his fiancee, Little Mix singer Perrie. The pair have yet to confirm or deny whether or not they’ve split after Perrie was photographed without her ring at the beginning of March 2015.
