Oosh. Have Little Mix just thrown some serious shade at Zayn Malik?
The ladies have stayed pretty schtum since it was confirmed last week that Zayn and their bandmate Perrie Edwards had ended their engagement.
This is despite that fact that it was reportedly Zayn who broke up with Perrie, leaving her ‘heartbroken’ and ‘livid’.
When Perrie was asked about the break-up on US TV channel E!, she said she was ‘good, thank you,’ and LM’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock told the interviewer they ‘didn’t want to talk about it.’
But now it seems they may be ready to let their true feelings out.
When the group arrived at a meet and greet with fans at a radio station in Arizona earlier this week, a fan was carrying a sign which read: ‘Zayn Malik is irrelevant anyway’. Ouch.
Later on, a Twitter photo emerged which appeared to show Jade Thirlwall carrying the placard as she left the venue.
Now, Jade could just have appreciated the fact that the devoted Mixer had gone to the effort of making them a present.
Others have said the other side of the sign read: ‘Stay strong Perrie’. But it is a pretty strong message… hmmmm.
Little Mix are currently travelling around America promoting their single Black Magic, where Pezza has shown Zayn EXACTLY what he’s missing by posting a series of smokin’ selfies.
Zayn – who quit his group One Direction in March – has also been in the US since announcing that he’d signed a solo deal with RCA Records earlier this month.

It seems as though the Bradford-born singer is busy networking before launching his new career. He’s followed musicians including Selena Gomez and Tyler, The Creator on Twitter.
He’s also gone through a bit of a transformation, sharing a snap of himself with a new white-grey hairdo this morning.
We’re VERY intrigued to see what he’ll get up to in the studio.
