“That girl is just one of many girls that he’s hooking up with — he has a list of them. It’s hasn’t been going on a long time as far as I know, but there definitely wasn’t any overlap with Perrie, so she can breathe easy there.” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Who can blame him? After all, he’s young, hot, single and very much playing the field after his nearly two-year engagement to Perrie ended.
Fans wondered if Zayn cheated on Perrie with Carlyn after it was revealed that Carlyn has known him for over a year. But things didn’t become romantic until Zayn put himself back on the market, so Perrie can take heart in that. She’s also not losing any sleep over it.
“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. She thinks Zayn has stooped to an all new low by making such a public to do about this girl,” HollywoodLife.com previously reported, EXCLUSIVELY.
Zayn’s been on a tear since splitting with Perrie. He was recently spotted having dinner with singer Rita Ora, 24, and was hoping to take things to the next level with her, but the “How We Do” singer wanted to keep things professional. He also allegedly sent Lily Allen, 30, x-rated photos and texts, despite the fact that she’s married! He was then linked to model Neelam Gill just a week before moving on to Carlyn.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Zayn has moved on too fast after his breakup with Perrie?
