Perrie Edwards and Eleanor Calder have both dealt with breakups from One Direction members this year, and they’ve confided in each other as friends do. But after Zayn Malik has dissed Perrie one too many times, HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY learned that Eleanor wants Perrie to completely cut him out!
Eleanor Calder has been a shoulder for Perrie Edwards, 22, to lean on after Zayn Malik, 22, broke up with her on Aug. 4. After all, Eleanor had her own heartbreak earlier this year with Louis Tomlinson. Unlike Eleanor’s breakup though, Perrie’s ex is throwing major shade at her, and Eleanor is NOT cool with that. A source told us exactly how Eleanor thinks Perrie should handle it! To hear more about Zayn Malik, head over to iTunes and download the latest HollywoodLife podcast for free!
While Zayn has been throwing disses left and right, a source tells HollywoodLife.com he has actually still been trying to reach Perrie. “He’s been calling and texting her just to see how she’s doing and talk but Perrie isn’t answering,” the source revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She’s trying to take Eleanor’s advice and cut him out of her life completely.”
You tell ’em, Eleanor! It’s great for Perrie to have a friend like El that can tell her how she should handle such a tough situation. Another insider told us that Eleanor has been there for Perrie from the day Zayn broke her heart, telling her that Zayn “doesn’t deserve her time or energy.”
The source revealed that Eleanor has offered Perrie advice on “how to be in a place of power,” telling her, “don’t contact him no matter what, delete his pics so you’re not reminded of him, and unfollow him on social media so he knows you don’t need him.” Perrie seemed to be finding that place of power, posting hot pics on Instagram and giving fierce performances with her band, Little Mix, across the United States. Still, Perrie needs all the support she can get as the split is obviously getting to her. While on stage on Aug. 19, Perrie broke down in tears, prompting friend and fans to send her warm wishes. Hang in there girl!
We know Perrie is incredibly strong, and she has plenty of people supporting her, including her bandmates (who have appropriately called Zayn irrelevant!) — especially with Eleanor’s help, she’ll hopefully be able to entirely cut Zayn out soon.
