Heartbroken Adam Wright was in love with singer Perrie

Adam Wright has revealed that he found out his ex-girlfriend Perrie Edwards was dating Zayn Malik after reading it in the papers.

X Factor finalist Perrie – one quarter of girl band Little Mix – is rumoured to be dating One Direction‘s Zayn, 18, after they swapped numbers backstage at the show.





‘I woke up one day and there were about 6 texts from mates saying, “Have you seen the papers?”‘ says Adam, 18.

‘I didn’t believe it, but when I read it was true I was jealous as I still had feelings for her.’

Adam, who dated 18-year-old Perrie for a year and a half before she dumped him in October, says they’re still good friends but thinks the she’s ‘changed’ since her success on Simon Cowell‘s singing competition.

‘I was gutted. I’d lost the girl I loved,’ Adam tells The Sun.

‘But I knew it was for the best.

‘She had to concentrate on X Factor. When I see her on TV it’s not as painful as I thought it would be.’
