Taylor Swift seemingly took sides in the Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards split when she invited Little Mix to perform with her in concert on Aug. 15. Zayn, who has since slammed the ‘Bad Blood’ singer, thinks Taylor is purposely supporting his ex. Find out why!
Zayn Malik and Taylor Swift have bad blood, and it all stems back to her highly-publicized romance with his former One Direction bandmate, Harry Styles. Apparently, things were pretty awkward between Zayn and Taylor when she dated Harry, and on Aug. 15, she seemingly proved how much she still dislikes Zayn by inviting his ex, Perrie Edwards‘, girl group, Little Mix, to perform with her in concert.
“Zayn thinks Taylor is purposely supporting Little Mix purely because she doesn’t like him! When she was dating Harry, Zayn felt like Taylor never made an effort to befriend him,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Taylor and Little Mix performed the band’s new song, “Black Magic,” in front of 50,000 screaming fans on Saturday night. Once Zayn learned of this, he started feeling like she did it on purpose. So what did he do? He fired back by dissing Taylor on Twitter. And then her boyfriend, Calvin Harris, stepped in and threw some shade at Zayn on the social media platform. But it didn’t stop there. Soon thereafter, Zayn called Calvin a “d***head,” and then both sides went quiet. Who knew a guest spot on Taylor’s 1989 World Tour could ignite such a war?
Taylor seemingly took sides by performing with Perrie Edwards, and because of that, we doubt there will ever be any mad love between Zayn and the “Blank Space” singer.
