Uh oh! Rixton frontman Jake Roche had a few not-so-nice things to say about Zayn Malik and the ‘horrible’ way he treated Perrie Edwards towards the end. He even called the former 1D star a ‘f–king idiot!’ Find out everything he said here.
Jake Roche, 22, who recently got engaged to Little Mix‘s Jesy Nelson, 24, knows the inside scoop on the downfall of Perrie Edwards, 22, and Zayn Malik’s, 22, relationship. The Rixton frontman not only spoke about the horrible way Zayn ended his engagement to Perrie over text, but also revealed what he really thinks of Zayn. Hint: Jake is not exactly a fan — on a personal level at least!
“I think he’s a f***ing idiot,” Jake told The Sun. “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.” Wow. Jake certainly held nothing back. Of course, Zayn has been taunting Perrie since their breakup, by unfollowing Little Mix on Twitter and retweeting something that blatantly dissed the band as a whole. Sorry Zayn, but that was just uncalled for.
Jake also revealed that he was not amused by the way Zayn ended his three year romance with Perrie over text. “I’d at least send an email! It’s more formal,” Jake continued. “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 antagonize it? It’s done! It’s a shame. He’s talented but he’s spoiled it.”
Well, Zerrie is definitely over, and it’s sad that they couldn’t end things more amicably. Perrie has gone completely radio silent on Zayn, and we don’t blame her. While she’s been busy with Little Mix promoting their music and leaning on her girls for support, Zayn is isolating himself in Los Angeles and has been feeling lost and alone without her.
If things go Jake’s way though, Perrie could be off the market again in no time! He revealed that he’s trying to set her up with Rixton guitarist Charley Bagnall. “She’s great and smiling again. Maybe Charley needs to widen that smile,” Jake said. “We’re trying to set them up now.” Aww!
Zayn’s rep has declined to comment.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Zayn treated Perrie horribly? Let us know!
