Although Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards broke up and went their separate ways back in August of 2015, just recently, tons of revelations about their relationship — well, mostly their messy breakup — have emerged straight from the former couples themselves. Perrie was the one who revealed tidbits of how things were for her during this difficult time in Little Mix's book, but now Zayn's memoir has arrived and he shared his version of what really went down between the pair and why he ultimately made the decision to call things off after he left his former band, One Direction.
"It was March 2015. I had been in a bad place for a while and I didn’t see myself getting out of it unless I made a change. My relationship with my fiancee, Perrie, was breaking down. To make matters worse, there were so many crazy stories flying around in the newspapers about us, and it felt like such an invasion of privacy, it made me just want to disappear for a while," Zayn wrote.
So it looks like the "Pillowtalk" singer was dealing with a lot when he left the group and things with Perrie weren't going well either. The couple did stay together for a few months past his decision to quit 1D and in early April of 2015, they even met on a lovely vacation along with Z's family. But it looks like things just weren't meant to be and since this is all that Zayn shared in his book, perhaps this is the final Zerrie update the world will ever get.
