Looks like Zayn Malik isn’t as downtrodden and forlorn as he’s seemed lately. He of former One Direction fame isn’t exactly stuck on Perrie Edwards anymore; he’s got a new lady in his life, and he’s totally taken with her!
Zayn Malik, 22, might finally be moving on after breaking things off with fiancée Perrie Edwards, 22. Zayn’s been spotted with model Neelam Gill, 20, and he’s reportedly “smitten” with the gorgeous girl. We can’t really blame him! Neelam was spotted in Heathrow airport heading to LAX on August 30, thought to be spending some serious QT with Zayn. What do you think he has in store for this beauty’s visit?
After Zayn ended his engagement with longtime love Perrie in July 2015, he seemed like he was totally living the high life. He’d just left One Direction, cut ties with his girl, and was fully free to do whatever he wanted. But as time went on, it was apparent from photos that all wasn’t well in Zayn-ville. Kid looked absolutely miserable without “source of support” Perrie by his side, and he was seriously regretting his decision! Especially since it seemed like Perrie’s was doing just fine without him!
But after meeting Neelam in London in March 2015, it looks like his blues are finally over! The lovely model (Burberry’s first-ever Indian model!) has totally captured Zayn’s heart. Zayn’s absolutely “smitten” with her, according to a source who spoke to DailyMail.
Zayn and Neelam met after running into each other at a recording studio in London, where Zayn was working on his solo music with Naughty Boy, and Neelam was hanging out with her friends Krept & Konan, who were also doing some recording at the time. You might recall Zayn later did a little recording with the hip hop duo; maybe Neelam made that happen!

After their initial meeting, Zayn and Neelam saw each other again at the Asian Awards, held in London that April, where Zayn won Outstanding Contribution to Music. Neelam tweeted at him after the show: “Congratulations on your award tonight @zaynmalik, catch up again soon!” Zayn was still with Perrie then, but don’t worry, nothing happened between the two; they just became friends!
We’re so excited to see how this potential relationship turns out. If Neelam really is on her way to LA from Heathrow, is it for modeling work, or to see Zayn? Maybe she’ll take a little pitstop!
