Perrie Edwards Is Using A Dating App — Zayn Malik’s Ex Looking For Love After Split With Latest Beau, Luke Pasqualino

Bright and sunny blonde Perrie Edwards has been described by Now as “one gal we’d love to be our celeb best friend.”

Fans were rooting for Perrie to find love again after her four-year-relationship with ex-One Direction star Zayn Malik ended badly. Perrie claimed that Zayn broke up with her via text message, leaving her deeply distressed, reports E! Online.

Zayn denied that he had dumped Perrie via text in an interview with Fader magazine. Malik insisted that he respects Perrie too much to do that. Zayn even said that he loves his ex and always will.

“If you could word it exactly this way, I’d be very appreciative. I have more respect for Perrie than to end anything over text message. I love her a lot, and I always will, and I would never end our relationship over four years like that. She knows that, I know that, and the public should know that as well. I don’t want to explain why or what I did.”

Zayn hinted that he knows the media is always twisting people’s words. He told the Fader interviewer “if you could word it exactly this way, I’d be very appreciative,” before he made his statement about Perrie.

Zayn said that he wants people to know he didn’t end his relationship with Edwards that way.

“I just want the public to know I didn’t do that.”

I was VERY happy to be in Barcelona… I just forgot to tell my face ????

Perrie admitted that the breakup hurt her, but insisted on the latest Little Mix album that she is “over it,” and that her heartbreaks have made her stronger.

Zayn Malik quickly moved on with supermodel Gigi Hadid.

Fans were thrilled when Perrie appeared to be moving on with hunky Luke Pasqualino. However, Daily Mail reported two weeks ago that Perrie and Luke had broken up because “there wasn’t that spark between them,” according to a source.

The Daily Mail reports that it was Perrie who decided to end things. Apparently, Perrie was too busy to commit to a relationship when she just wasn’t really feeling it.

“In order to commit to someone at this busy time — she’d have to be really into them. It’s a big commitment to date someone whilst you’re constantly on the road — it’s hard — and Perrie just wasn’t really feeling things with Luke. There wasn’t that spark between them, so she’s told him there won’t be any romance between them moving forward.”

The source also stated that Perrie and Luke had been on a few dates over many months, and it wasn’t serious yet.

“Perrie went on a few dates with Luke over the last few months — it wasn’t serious but they were getting to know one another.”

Riding through the mountains! ???? ????????

Perrie may not have been feeling it with Luke, but she is looking for a new man, according to Now. A source told the mag that Perrie is using a dating app to try to find someone she does share that spark with.

The mag cheekily informs Perrie fans that they should not get too excited about finding her on Tinder. Apparently, Perrie has set up a profile on an exclusive creative industry dating app.

“Don’t get too excited, fellas — you aren’t about to match with the lovely Little Mix lady on Tinder.”

Now speculates that Perrie may be using the app Raya, which is aimed at creative industry professionals.

Perrie’s bandmate, Jade, confirmed in an interview that Perrie is not on Tinder. Nick Grimshaw asked Jade about dating apps, and Jade said that being famous makes using those things hard because everybody recognizes you.

Jade mentions an industry app Perrie uses, which Edwards has praised as “quite good.”

“You see, it’s really hard when you’re famous. Everyone knows who you are. There is an industry app [though] which Perrie’s been on before that she said was quite good, but Tinder … not so much.”
