Perrie Edwards‘ mum wants everyone to know that her daughter had nothing to do with Zayn Malik leaving One Direction.
Some 1D fans labelled the Little Mix girl, 21, the ‘modern Yoko Ono’ after Zayn quit the band in March – which Deborah Edwards thinks is very unfair.
‘It was his decision and nothing to do with Perrie,’ Deborah tells the Daily Mirror.
Zayn, 22, proposed to Perrie in August 2013, although the couple have admitted that they’re too busy to plan their wedding.
Even so, Deborah definitely improves of her future son-in-law.
‘They’ve always been happy. Zayn’s one of the nicest boys I’ve ever met and I couldn’t imagine Perrie with anyone else,’ she says.
‘I feel like he’s already my son, they’ve been together since she was on The X Factor so he’s part of the family.’
It’s no wonder Perrie has no time to sort out her nuptials – the Little Mix girls have a lot of exciting things going on right now.
They’re currently promoting their new single Black Magic and *officially* launched their debut perfume Gold Magic on Tuesday.
Perrie, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall first announced that they were releasing a fragrance earlier this month.
But they’ve now previewed the bottle at a swanky party and released some very glitzy artwork on Instagram.
In the picture, the singers pull their fiercest poses as they pose in all-black ensembles.
Jesy, 24, shows a hint of flesh in a mesh-detailed dress while Leigh-Anne, 23, works a super-sexy plunging piece.

A lacy negligee-inspired design is perfect for Perrie and Jade, 22, is girlie in a sleeveless skater.
Jade was clearly feeling very proud of the campaign shot, saying on Instagram: ‘We are so, so excited for our #GoldMagic perfume launch tonight!
‘We’ve waited 4 years for this haha! We’ve been so involved in the whole process and couldn’t be prouder of our debut fragrance, we think you’ll love it!
‘#TakeASpritzOfOurSecretPotion #AndItsCalledGoldMagic bring on tonight! Xxjadexx.’
Leigh-Anne also shared an image on her page, which showed four different boxes with individual pictures of the ladies on them.
She wrote: ‘I am so proud of us.. We have been so involved every step of the way to make this a perfume to be proud of!
‘It smells amazingggggg! Out on the 24th June x.’
Perrie gave us a sneak peek inside the shoot, uploading an Instagram photo of herself being helped into some ah-mazing gladiator shoes.
Leigh-Anne then took us behind us the scenes of the launch, captioning a selfie in the hairdresser’s chair: ‘@aaroncarlohair and @jamesbickmore double team on this barnet..
‘Can’t wait for tonight! The launch for #GoldMagic x L.’
But there was an extra-special reason for Leigh-Anne to feel excited about the bash. She’d invited a very special person – her dad.
It seems Mr Pinnock had a brilliant time. Leigh-Anne later wrote alongside a picture of him: ‘I cant handle how cute my dad looks here!!!
‘Lol hope ive made you proud dad! love you lots! xleigh #GoldMagic.’
We’re pretty sure you have, Leigh!
