Zayn Malik may have ended his two-year engagement to fiancée Perrie Edwards just weeks ago, but sources close to Malik are now revealing that the former One Direction star is enjoying the single life.
Malik most recently made headlines after sources close to British songstress, Lily Allen, revealed that Malik is smitten with the “Smile” singer, prompting those close to Malik to speak out in regards to the speculation.
“Lily isn’t the only person Zayn is texting and flirting with,” a source close to Zayn explains to Hollywood Life.
“He’s got a number of girls on the go he likes to rotate for attention, and he’s enjoying the single life,” the source continues, before noting that Malik “loves” meeting new girls.
“He doesn’t see any harm if in now he’s a single guy and is having a great time meeting new people. Zayn doesn’t have any interest in settling down just yet, so why not play the field instead?”
The news comes just days after a source close to Allen revealed to The Sun that Zayn sent some “raunchy” text messages to singer, who has ignited split rumors with husband Sam Cooper.
The source reveals, “Zayn fancies Lily and has made that very clear. He has even sent her X-rated pics and raunchy texts which Lily has told quite a few people in her close circle about. She’s flattered.”
Similarly, Malik found himself at the center of dating rumors with fellow British star Rita Ora last week after they were spotted out on a dinner date.
When asked about their rumored romance during an interview with Capital FM radio last week, Ora shot down fans’ hopes of a budding romance with the “Story Of My Life” singer, Billboard reports.
“Zayn, he’s gorgeous, but, I just…that can’t happen,” Ora reveals, “We’re on the same management team, too close to that. But no, he’s great.”
Malik also recently ignited dating rumors with Burberry model Neelam Gill earlier this month, although sources close to Gill have since silenced those reports, Mirror UK reveals.
“Neelam doesn’t know if she wants all of the drama that comes with dating someone in the public eye. She is going to LA to spend some time with Zayn and see how things go from there.”
Similarly, Zayn made headlines for his rumored romance with Selena Gomez in August after the 1D singer followed the songstress on social media for the first time.
When asked about Malik’s decision to follower her on social media, Gomez explained to BBC, via The Mirror, that she wasn’t even aware that the singer was a fan of hers.
“I had no idea what that was until somebody else asked me,” Gomez explains, “Obviously I know Zayn, though, so it’s not like a weird thing. I just didn’t know who followed me. Thanks for the follow, Zayn!”
