Dropping a major truth bomb. Perrie Edwards admitted that her ex of four years, Zayn Malik, dumped her over a single text message and revealed just how upsetting it was at the time. We have the proof, and the heartbreaking details, here.
A picture is worth a thousand words. Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards, 23, revealed in the girl group’s new book, Our World, that ex Zayn Malik, 23, broke up with her over a text message. “It was horrible, the worst time in my life,” she wrote. “A four-year relationship, two-year engagement ended by a simple text message. Just like that. Even thought things in my career were going really well, it was incredibly difficult for me. I was happy but inside I felt broken.” Wow.

It breaks our hearts to hear how upset Perrie was after Zayn dumped her over just a text, and we can totally understand why. After all, she and the hunky singer seemed so happy together, and were engaged to be married. The ex couple began dating in early 2012 and got engaged in 2013 — but in Aug. 2015, the ex One Direction singer’s rep confirmed that the pair had broken off their engagement. As we all now know, Zayn has been dating Gigi Hadid, 21, since Nov. 2015.
Still, Perrie admitted that despite her being upset at the time, she’s now much happier. “Right now I’m enjoying being single and I know I don’t need anyone,” she wrote. And as HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY told you in Sept. 2016, “Perrie is relieved that she’s not in a relationship with Zayn anymore. She actually feels bad for Gigi and the constant cheating rumors she has to deal with.” Wow.
