Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards were engaged two years before the former One Direction singer broke it off with her in August of 2015 and started dating model Gigi Hadid two months later.

Rumours immediately emerged that the 23-year-old had broken up with poor Perrie over text, but Zayn then spoke out, saying,

‘I have more respect for Perrie than to end anything over text message. I love her a lot, and I always will, and I would never end our relationship over four years like that’.

‘She knows that, I know that, and the public should know that as well. I don’t want to explain why or what I did. I just want the public to know I didn’t do that,’ he added.

This was good enough for most Directioners, but now the 23-year-old Little Mix singer is giving her side of the story in her new tell-all book.

In a segment posted to Twitter, the passage reads, ‘It was horrible, the worst time of my life’.

‘A four-year relationship, two-year engagement ended by a simple text message. Just like that. Even though things in my career were going really well, it was incredibly difficult for me.’

So who’s telling the truth?
