Things are officially O-V-E-R between Perrie Edwards and Zayn Malik — so why then is she still holding onto her engagement ring? HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that Perrie refuses to give the ring back after the way Zayn treated her. Consider it karma!
Zayn Malik, 22, may have taken Perrie Edwards‘, 22, heart with him when he called off their relationship back in July 2015, but one thing he won’t be getting back is her engagement ring! A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the Little Mix singer was so crushed by the way he ended things between them, that she’s decided there’s no way in hell she’s ever going to give him back the ring: “He doesn’t deserve it!” To hear more about Zayn Malik, head over to iTunes and download the latest HollywoodLife podcast for free!
“Perrie still has the ring and plans on keeping it and not for sentimental reasons,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She feels like Zayn doesn’t deserve to get it back, not after the way he treated her and the way he broke up with her. There’s absolutely no way in hell she’s giving that ring back.”
Perrie was reportedly devastated when Zayn called things off via a text message back in July. Thankfully, the gorgeous singer appears to be doing much better these days. The Little Mixer recently sat down for an interview with the Mirror UK, in which she opened about her new single life for the first time, admitting that she and fellow single bandmate Jade Thirlwall, 22, are loving being back on the market together! “I’m having an absolute blast,” exclaimed Perrie. “We have a bit of banter with guys in nightclubs… I love it. I love going out. I’m feeling brilliant and I’m in a good place – and I’ve got new hair.” So exciting!
And as for that photo Zayn posted to his Instagram of the new girl he’s seeing, don’t worry — Perrie couldn’t have cared less! “Is she heartbroken over the pic? No, she’s disgusted,” an insider told us. “She wants to tell the girl, ‘You can have him’! Perrie isn’t wasting any more tears on this guy. Plus, she thinks he’s just trying to make her jealous because he knows she has moved on. It’s just an attention-seeking, desperate, heartless ploy.”
“The photo just confirms everything she already thinks about Zayn. ‘Heartless’ is the first word that came to Perrie’s mind when she saw it,” the insider continued.
