Zayn Malik has seemingly been keeping a dignified silence since his ex-fiancee, Perrie Edwards, started dishing the dirt on their romance and break-up, but it appears as though her comments have struck a nerve behind the scenes.
In fact, Zayn’s new girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, is reportedly keen to meet with the Little Mix star to tell her to stop talking about her beau.
To be a fly on the wall at that meeting…
What makes it all the more awkward is that the supermodel wants Zayn to orchestrate the get-together - and we can’t imagine that he will be jumping at the chance to do that.
Speaking to Reveal magazine, a source dished: “Gigi’s asked Zayn to get in touch with Perrie and set up a meeting, just between the two girls, so she can make it clear that she wants her to stop talking about Zayn’
"She feels she’s never going to truly get Perrie out of her and Zayn’s life until she meets her face-to-face and sorts things out.
"She’s really keen to assure Perrie that she wasn’t with Zayn when he was still in the relationship with her.”
And it doesn’t end there, with the mysterious insider claiming that Perrie is considering the meet-up, adding: “She’s not guaranteeing to promise Gigi she won’t be writing anymore lyrics about Zayn in the future but she’s willing to listen to what she has to say.”
Perrie recently confirmed that Zayn had ended their four-year romance via text message last year and she has also bravely opened up about the affect that their relationship had on her mental health, recounting one incident in an airport where she had a breakdown following a particularly emotional phone call with the former One Direction star.
