So is she hurting all over again thanks to Zayn’s new song about her? has EXCLUSIVELY learned the truth!

“If she heard the song a few months ago she would have had more of an emotional reaction to it, but her tears about the breakup are not there anymore. She has moved on,” a source tells EXCLUSIVELY. “Sure she is interested in hearing the songs about her but she is in a good place right now and can hear them with an open heart and an open mind.

“Zayn had his emotions over the breakup that he needed to get out of him and it needed to be put on paper,” our insider adds. “He wrote a lot of songs geared towards Perrie but this one spoke volumes and said the words he needed to say about the situation.

I won’t, I won’t, I won’t!
Cover the scar
I’ll let it be
So my silence
So my silence won’t
