The X Factor couple's break-up was mutual
The cute boybander and mum-of-two Rebecca, 25, whose romance was a huge surprise to fans because of their 7-year
age gap, broke up last month.
‘I got told at the beginning of my career it’s quite hard to hold on
to a relationship and realised halfway through the relationship that it
was hard,’ says Zayn, 18.
‘We both mutually decided.
‘Am I sad? We’re just getting on with it and doing our own thing. We’re still friends though.’
Zayn says the One Direction boys are being a great support, and credits Louis Tomlinson, 19, as the ‘agony uncle’ of the group.
‘The band are there to help me through it,’ he tells the Daily Record. ‘We’re 5 mates.
‘We talk about everything.’
