Aw! HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal that the Little Mix singer totally appreciates the support she’s gotten from Rixton’s Jake Roche amidst the fallout from her breakup with Zayn Malik. She wasn’t surprised at all that Jake slammed Zayn.
Perrie Edwards, 22, has plenty of people to lean on, including the band Rixton, who are “no longer fans” of Zayn Malik, 22, after the cruel way he broke her heart. The British beauty is beyond “grateful” that frontman Jake Roche, 22, who is engaged to Little Mix singer Jesy Nelson, 24, majorly dissed her ex during a recent interview, an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“Perrie is grateful and totally appreciates the ongoing support she’s been getting from all the guys, including Jake. They are all super tight. It’s no secret that none of guys from Rixton are fans of Zayn, at least not after the way he treated Perrie. Jake and Perrie are like brother and sister, so she’s not surprised that he spoke out against Zayn. He’s just protective and knows that Perrie has one of the biggest hearts ever,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
As Hollywoodlife.com previously reported, Jake slammed the former One Direction singer in a recent interview with The Sun. Jake said, “I think he’s a f***ing idiot. The way he’s treated her is horrible. He’s not a very nice man. Professionally he’s talented but — and I’m speaking from what I’ve seen — he should be ashamed.”
Jake went on to blast Zayn over breaking up with Perrie by text. “I’d at least send an email! It’s more formal,” Jake said. “But it’s not about treating a woman like that, it’s about treating a human like that. It’s disrespectful. And the whole re-tweeting thing. He finished with her! Why antagonise it? It’s done!”
