It's reported that Zayn Malik has ended his two-year engagement to Little Mix star Perrie Edwards, leaving the singer 'devastated'

Zayn Malik has reportedly ended his two-year engagement with Perrie Edwards, leaving the Little Mix star ‘devastated’. SOB.

People magazine reports that One Direction star Zayn, 22, contacted Perrie two weeks ago to tell her it was over.

Since then, the blonde beauty has been putting on a brave face whilst she tours America with her bandmates to promote their new single Black Magic.

A source told People: ‘She’s been putting on a brave face as Little Mix have had promotion to do, but she’s obviously devastated.’

The source added: ‘Perrie’s being supported by her bandmates, but she’s really in pieces about this.’

The reasons behind the apparent split are yet unknown.

The new comes just one day after 22-year-old Perrie was pictured showing off her incredible figure in a bikini whilst soaking up the sun with fellow Little Mixer Leigh-Anne Pinnock – and, tellingly,  her engagement ring was no-where in sight.

The couple first announced their engagement back in 2013 during the premiere of One Direction’s This Is Us film.

Since then it’s been a bumpy ride for the young lovers. Perrie stood by her man when he decided to quit One Direction earlier this year, despite rumours that he had cheated on the Geordie singer with various women.

It’s understood that Zayn and Perrie are currently in Los Angeles, but they have not been in contact with one another.

So is it time to take back the hat we’d bought especially for their big day? It looks that way. Sad face.

Still, we can’t imagine that Perrie Winkle (as the Little Mix girls have been known to call her) will stay single for long; she was recently voted as Capital FM’s Sexiest Female.

And the person who took the title of Sexiest Male? Erm, Zayn. Awkward.
