Zayn Malik, 22, may have quit One Direction in a desperate attempt to keep his fiancee, Perrie Edwards, 21, from leaving him.

Perrie Edwards & Zayn Malik — How Cheating Rumors Nearly Destroyed Their Love
“Girls threw themselves at Zayn wherever he went and he always had a hard time saying no,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Perrie was always stressing about it, but on this tour, he was worse than he’s ever been before. People were telling her things about him hooking up with other groupies and it got to the point where she believed a lot of the stuff she was hearing.”
It seems as though Zayn felt like he had to make a choice — it was either the band or Perrie.
“It was do or die for Perrie,” our source added. “She didn’t tell him to quit the band, but she broke up with him because she couldn’t deal with all the craziness anymore. Quitting the band was his reaction to her breaking up with him. He wanted to prove to her that she means more than anything in the world to him. It’s something he’s been talking about for a long time, but getting dumped by Perrie pushed him to go through with it.”

And maybe it worked because Perrie’s engagment ring is back on! The singer was seen sporting her diamond band after seeing Zayn for the first time since he left 1D. Does this mean that a wedding is imminent?
“He’s told Perrie he’ll do anything to please her and wants to stop pushing their wedding date back. He says he wants to get married this year, but Perrie is finding it hard to let go of what she’s seen,” a source tells Closer Magazine.
