Perrie Edwards is slowly getting back in the dating game four months after her surprise split from Zayn Malik. The Sun was the first to publish the photos of the Little Mix singer linked arm-in-arm with nightclub promoter Leon King. The two were spotted having on a date at Winter Wonderland in London Hyde’s Park on Tuesday, Dec. 15, according to British media outlets. Even an alleged insider said that Edwards and King looked very much like a couple.
“They looked very cosy as they walked around. Perrie and Leon linked arms and looked closer than friends. It was just the two of them, other than Perrie’s security guards, who kept a close eye on them as they mingled with the public. She is due some happiness after what happened with Zayn. Hopefully Leon can give her that.”
Apparently their budding relationship is getting serious. According to a new report, Leon King was photographed visiting Perrie Edwards’ music video set on Thursday, Dec. 17. He couldn’t keep his eyes off the singer as she filmed the video for her next single “Secret Love Song” with her Little Mix bandmates. Perrie was spotted wearing a suede long coat with multicolored fur. She had her trademark blonde hair pulled back in a half ponytail, as she wore snakeskin boots.

Though her man seems supportive, some say that he could be trouble. According to a report via the Daily Star, Edwards’ new man is another good-looking bad boy, who writes naughty and flirty tweets. King’s Twitter account is filled with sex and drug references, most of which are too graphic to post here. However, there hasn’t been any confirmation whether or not King has taken drugs or other illegal substances.
It appears that Perrie may have a time. She ended her two-year relationship from Zayn over the summer. In his first ever solo interview with The Fader, he has denied reports that he ended his relationship with the pop star over text message.
“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 as well. I don’t want to explain why or what I did, I just want the public to know I didn’t do that.”
While it’s clear that Edwards has moved on, Malik, 22, has been spotted out and about with model Gigi Hadid, 20, at the end of November. The hot new couple were spotted at an AMAs after-party and then at The Nice Guy, the latest Hollywood hotspot. According to the Hollywood Life, Edwards isn’t fazed by Malik’s budding relationship with the beauty.
“Perrie isn’t really bothered because she knows it’s a rebound relationship for Zayn. She’s having the time of her life right now and isn’t preoccupied with anything Zayn related. She’s not one to obsess on social media about Zayn and Gigi, and she’s not one to compare herself to other girls.”
Edwards may no longer find Malik hot, but other women still do. Earlier this week, he topped the 2015 list of the World’s 50 Sexiest Asian Men. He’s also the youngest man to ever top the list, according to BT.com. Last year’s winner, Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan, slipped into second place this year. Malik was in ninth place last year, but won out this year due to overwhelming votes from across the globe.
