Looks like a major diss to us! Perrie Edwards and her band Little Mix opened for One Direction at the Apple Music Festival in London. Remember, Perrie used to date Zayn Malik, who used to be in One Direction — what a twisted little web of shade!
Singing their hit new song, “Love Me Like You,” Little Mix hit the stage in London at the Apple Music Festival. Ironically, the girl group was the opening act for One Direction! Zayn Malik, who broke up with Little Mix‘s Perrie Edwards and quit One Direction months ago, can’t be too pleased with this little “coincidence”! Do YOU think Little Mix opening for One Direction was an intentional jab at Zayn?!
Zayn Malik quit One Direction in March and even though he claimed the exit was amicable, we have a hard time believing there was no tension between he and the boys afterwards. When Zayn signed his solo deal with RCA, he tweeted about it and wrote #realmusic — such a jab to his former band!
At the time, his then fiancée thought leaving One Direction was in his best interest. “She had been telling him that leaving 1D was the best thing he could’ve done for himself. If he had stayed, the consequences could’ve been a lot worse,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Months later in August, Zayn ended things with Perrie! “Zayn and Perrie had been struggling for months. She’s been touring and he’s been focusing on the second chapter in his career. They barely saw each other and they hadn’t even had sex in over two months,” another insider told us. We also learned that the two were not on good terms after the split!
Considering all of this, we are sure that Zayn wasn’t thrilled to see his ex-girlfriend opening for his ex-band at the Apple Music Festival! HollywoodLifers, do you think this made Zayn mad? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
