Singer unfazed by cheating rumours

Perrie Edwards has revealed that her relationship with One Direction’s Zayn Malik is stronger than ever.

Despite recent allegations – denied by Zayn, 20 – that he cheated on her with waitress Courtney Webb, Little Mix star Perrie is making things work with her man and praises 1D for being ‘so big and so amazing’.

‘Things are all good,’ says Perrie, 19.

Zayn is my best friend and I’ve seen more of him since we finished our tour. But it’s hard as One Direction have been on tour as well.

‘But we went to The Brits together last month and had a great time.’

Perrie admits that she relies on her Little Mix bandmates – Jesy Nelson, 21, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 21, and Jade Thirlwall, 20 – for support when things are tough.

‘I try not to let what I read in the paper get to me,’ the singer tells the Daily Mirror.

‘But I still read things and think “that didn’t happen”. But as long as me and the girls know it’s not true, that’s what matters.

‘We laugh about things and refuse to let it get to us.’
