Perrie Edwards is said to be 'devastated' after Zayn Malik reportedly called off their engagement via a phone message

We’re still pretty stunned by the news that Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards are no more but the story might have just got even more shocking…

Reports have emerged suggesting that former One Direction star Zayn, 22, dumped fiancée Perrie via TEXT a whole fortnight ago, which is said to have left Little Mix star Perrie deeply upset.

In fact it’s claimed that the couple haven’t spoken since it happened.

‘He ended their engagement with one text message and in the two weeks since there’s been complete radio silence between them,’ a source tells The Sun.

‘Who does that? She’s devastated, which everyone understands, but is doing her best to focus on work and to put on a brave face in public.’

Neither Zayn nor Perrie, 22, have commented on the rumours but it’s clear that they’ll be a lot to sort out following their break-up.

It’s thought that the pair – known to fans as Zerrie – had only recently purchased a £3 million house together just outside of London so will have to decide what to do about it.

‘This was a very serious, major financial purchase,’ the source adds.

‘She thought Zayn was committing to their long-term future.’

News of Zayn and Perrie’s split broke on Tuesday night, with a representative for Zayn confirming that they’d decided to call it quits.

The young couple have been together since 2012 and got engaged in the summer of 2013.

Zayn – who revealed last week that he’d signed his first solo record deal with RCA Records following his departure from 1D in March – has been busy on Twitter since his break-up from Perrie.

The singer posted several messages last night whilst spending time in Los Angeles and thanked fans for sticking by him.

He also posted a sultry selfie and declared that he was ‘chillin’.

Meanwhile Perrie – who is also in America doing promotional work with her Little Mix bandmates – took to Instagram to show fans her stunning outfit as she prepared for a night out.

The blonde star posed in a gorgeous white dress and told her followers: ‘All glammed and ready to boogie! ❤️’

We’re glad to see that Zerrie appear to be coping well since the split.
