Perrie Edwards Reveals She Was Homeless After Zayn Split
The Shout Out To My Ex singer was devastated and had nowhere to go.
Releasing a song called Shout Out To My Ex means you’re probably going to have to talk about your ex. And when your ex-boyfriend is ex-One Direction singer Zayn Malik, that’s going to very be interesting...
Perrie Edwards has been pretty open about the heartbreak she felt when Zayn told her their engagement and relationship was over. The gorgeous blonde singer has previously said she “had a mini breakdown” in the airport when she got the news. Now Perrie has revealed she was actually homeless post-split, yet another stress to deal with.
In Little Mix’s new book Our World, Perrie says, “After I split with my partner, out of the blue, I had nowhere to go, which was incredibly stressful. For a while I had no idea what to do.”
Obvs bandmates Jade Thirlwall, Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock told her she was welcome to crash at theirs but Perrie didn’t want to burden her pals. Literally too sweet.
“I thought about renting but I’ve got dogs and cats, so that was no good. At the time we were promoting Black Magic, and while I was in America, things really hit me. I realised I was homeless. I was crying every day, dreading coming back.”
Anyone who has been through a big break up will totally relate to Perrie’s words. We’re super happy the pop babe feels strong enough to talk about it. Oh, and that she’s channelled her experience through in Little Mix’s music and come up with Shout Out To My Ex. Because, let’s face it, there’s no better way to say “I am SO okay now" than with a number 1 hit single.
