Former One Direction Zayn Malik And Perrie Edwards' Engagement Over, Breaks Up Due To Pressure?

Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards' long engagement has reportedly gone down the drain. The break up has left the Little Mix member "devastated," according to a report on People.

"She's been putting on a brave face, as Little Mix have had promotion to do, but she's obviously devastated," the source revealed. "Perrie's being supported by her bandmates, but she's really in pieces about this." 

Malik apparently initiated the split two weeks ago by simply telling Edwards that they're done.

As reported by Hollywood Life, former One Direction member Zayn Malik decided to break up the engagement with Perrie Edwards because he can no longer deal with the pressure and strain in their relationship.

"Zayn and Perrie had been struggling for months," an insider told the website." She's been touring and he's been focusing on the second chapter in his career."

"The further they fell apart, the more anxious she got and the more she started pressing him to set a wedding date," the source added. "She pushed and pushed and finally Zayn told her he didn't want to get married."

Malik and Edwards have yet to officially address the purported end of their engagement. Both their social media accounts have not been showings any sign of the break up but well-wishes and mixed reactions from fans have poured. Some were even hoping there was no truth to the reports. But a rep has confirmed the reports to several media outlets including ABC News.

In a report on Mirror, Edwards was also pictured by a fellow Little Mix member sunbathing on Monday without her ring on.

According to E! Online, the newly solo artist and the girl band member got engaged in 2013. They did not announce a wedding date since then and even in recent months.

Zayn Malik's engagement break up with Perrie Edwards comes just a week after he signed a solo record deal and almost five months since he left One Direction.
