Zayn Malik’s mystery blonde girl was finally revealed. It’s believed to be Carlyn Bryan, a PR girl from Los Angeles, California. According to a recent report, Zayn and Carlyn knew each other about a year, even while he was with Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards.
Does that mean Zayn Malik cheated on his fiancee with the blonde lookalike? An alleged source told Hollywood Life that Malik, 22, did not cheat on Edwards and that he’s just enjoying the single life at this moment. In fact, Malik and Bryan aren’t as serious as it may appear in their cozy photo together.
“That girl is just one of the many girls that he’s hooking up with — he has a list of them. It hasn’t been going on a long time as far as I know, but there definitely wasn’t any overlap with Perrie, so she can breathe easy there.”
This is different from the Sun’s alleged source, which hinted that Zayn and Carlyn were kind of serious. The British tabloid says that the blonde beauty wants to keep their growing romance “under wraps as long as possible.”
“It’s early days but a budding romance between the pair is on the cards. Despite Zayn posting a picture, Carlyn is trying to keep a low profile and the relationship will be kept under wraps as long as possible. They’ve socialized in the same place over the past year but their bond has only progressed recently.”
Ever sine Malik shared a photo of their snuggly get-together, she set all of her social media accounts to private.
It all started on Saturday, September 28, when the former One Direction singer shared a sexy black-and-white photo of himself on Instagram. The topless photo didn’t just feature him, but also the Perrie Edwards lookalike getting cozy with the bad boy. The photo shows Zayn looking over at his new lady with kissy lips, as she looks back at him and makes a duck face at the camera. Of course, Zayn didn’t bother to include a caption or explanation for the random photo.
Fans went into overdrive figuring out who Malik’s new blonde beauty was. Some immediately assumed that it was Perrie Edwards since the features are remarkably similar. Others thought that it was Gage Golightly of Teen Wolf fame or Nicola Anne Peltz from Bates Motel, but both blonde actresses took to social media to quickly slam the romance rumors.
It was then revealed that the mystery girl is none other than Carlyn Bryan. She lives in California, where she has a background in public relations and marketing. She has become more than friends with Zayn lately, but some shouldn’t call it a serious relationship just yet.
Zayn Malik himself hasn’t responded to the rumors and speculation about his new girlfriend. As for his ex-fiancee, Perrie Edwards, she’s reportedly livid about the photo. An alleged inside source claims that she believes it’s tacky of Zayn to post a photo nearly a month after their breakup.
“The photo just confirms everything she already thinks about Zayn. ‘Heartless’ is the first word that came to Perrie’s mind when she saw it. She thinks Zayn stooped to an all new low by making such a public to do about this girl.”
Zayn Malik has been mingling ever since his split from the Little Mix cutie. He was spotted having dinner with British pop star Rita Ora and reportedly had a crush on her, but the singer denied the romance rumors. Malik has also been linked to Kylie Jenner, Zendaya, and model Neelam Gill, before showing off his romance with Bryan.
Zayn hasn’t posted any more photos of himself or of Carlyn on his Instagram account. Instead, he’s been busy sharing photos of graffiti art and his rumored album cover, which features the heartthrob smoking.
