Well, look what we have here! Perrie Edwards is on the rebound from Zayn Malik, and has been secretly dating ‘TOWIE’ star, Joey Essex– and they’ve already been hanging out for weeks!
Zayn who? Perrie Edwards, 22, has found herself a new squeeze! The Little Mix singer has been getting cozy with The Only Way is Essex star, Joey Essex, 25. The duo met when friends introduced them to each other at the Pride of Britain Awards on Sept. 28, and have reportedly been having secret rendezvous ever since. Joey is said to be “smitten” with Perrie already and, honestly, we can’t think of a better way for her to get over the heartbreaking split from former fiance, Zayn Malik, 22!
“It’s very early days, but Perrie likes Joey because he makes her laugh,” a source told the Mirror. “They are just getting to know each other and taking things slowly, but Joey is already smitten,” they added.
It turns out, Perrie and Joey have a lot in common. While she broke up with former One Direction-er Zayn in August, Joey, too, is fresh off a breakup. Joey and his girlfriend, Charlotte Stuchfield, 18, are officially donezo, allowing both he and Perrie to form a little broken hearts club, if ya know what we mean.
“Perrie has just come out of a serious relationship and is enjoying having fun right now,” the source added of the gorgeous gal, who was reportedly left devastated following her split from Zayn.
Meanwhile, prior to his split from Charlotte, Joey had been engaged to his TOWIE costar, Sam Faiers, and has also reportedly been linked to his I’m A Celebrity costar, Amy Willerton. Hm, so it seems Joey might be a bit of a ladies’ man, but as long as Perrie is having fun and enjoying herself, we’re all for the new couple!
What do you guys think, HollywoodLifers? Do Perrie and Joey make a cute couple?
