Zayn Isn’t Refusing To Play The Same Gigs As Perrie Edwards

It looks like Zayn Malik may end up reuniting with his ex-fiancée Perrie Edwards.

No, not like that! Zayn’s confirmed that he’s dating American model Gigi Hadid, while Pezza is way too busy being single and fabulous.

But they could end up on the bill for the same music festival later this year, meaning there’s a good chance they’ll bump into each other backstage.

It was reported earlier this week that Zayn was ‘refusing’ to play Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Exeter in case Perrie’s band Little Mix were there.

This is despite the fact that Perrie and her bandmates Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson haven’t even been confirmed for the event at Powderham Castle. Hmmm.

A source told the Daily Mirror: ‘Zayn’s team don’t want it to become “a thing” if the two of them are backstage at the same time.

‘It will take the shine off his performance, because many people would then just talk about his past relationship. Zayn and his team really want his solo career to be all about the music.

‘Obviously, there are ways to ensure they are kept apart at the site. But once they’re both at the same location on the same day, tongues will wag.

‘And if they were to bump into each other, it would make the whole day awkward.’

However, a representative for Zayn has now told MailOnline that the claims are ‘completely untrue’. Phew.

TBH, considering Zayn and Perrie ended their engagement last summer, we doubt they’ll still be trying to avoid each other when Big Weekend rolls around in May.

And surely they’re both too professional to miss a festival just because there’s a teeny chance they may have to say a couple of words to their ex?

We reckon they’re both mature enough to have a quick chat if they end up in the same room.

After the release of Zayn’s debut solo single Pillowtalk last week, we’re just excited to hear the rest of his album…
