The big news is that Perrie Edwards and Zayn Malik are texting each other again and trying to re-establish a true friendship.
However, many Perrie Edwards and Zayn Malik fans are attempting to figure out the nature of their current friendship, especially because of Zayn's current girlfriend, Gigi Hadid. Nevertheless Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards may have been leaving a trail of clues all along.
Of course, the big news everyone was hoping to hear about concerning Perrie Edwards and Zayn Malik reuniting was related to the Summertime Ball. Hosted by Capital FM, the event would be one of Zayn Malik's first solo appearances post-One Direction, as well as a chance to perform at the same event as his ex-fiancee, Perrie Edwards.
Perrie Edwards did perform as part of Little Mix, but, unfortunately, Zayn Malik had an anxiety attack that left him unable to play the festival, as reported by Self.
Despite the disappointment of not hearing Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards join each other on stage for a duet at the Summertime Ball, the former couple have been texting.
Allegedly, Perrie Edwards had Zayn Malik's number blocked for a while, but they started texting again around May. Insiders close to Perrie Edwards allegedly stated the following about the situation.
"Perrie's made it clear that she's not interested in a reconciliation right now. Her friends are worried that it's a bad idea to even chat to him, but she's fine for now."While many headlines are excited about the chance of Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards getting back together as friends, the reality is not so titillating. In fact, the only thing that Perrie Edwards and Zayn Malik have leaked to the press about the texting they have done since they broke up in mid-2015 is related to real estate.
For example, when Perrie Edwards and Zayn Malik were still together, they bought a "love nest" a few months before they broke up, according to Mirror.
Following their breakup, there was the waiting period for Perrie Edwards to vacate their shared home in London, but Zayn Malik still had a lot of property issues that needed to be discussed with Perrie.
Some insiders even claimed Zayn Malik was demanding that Perrie Edwards get all of her stuff out of the mansion in mid-October, 2015.
Regardless, Perrie Edwards moved back into her shared property with Zayn Malik in early November, 2015.
After Perrie Edwards moved into her new place in February, there was other issues to discuss such as shared property with Zayn Malik that was still at her place, according to Daily Mail.
Finally, just when it seemed that all of the real estate issues were going to be resolved, Perrie Edwards and Zayn Malik may have been fighting about her mother.
Around the end of March, there were rumors that Zayn Malik was evicting Perrie Edwards' mother, Debbie Edwards. Zayn Malik bought a house for Perrie Edwards' mom, and allegedly asked Debbie to move out.
Insiders close to Zayn Malik and/or Perrie Edwards allegedly stated the following about the situation.
"[Zayn] has issued Debbie with an ultimatum -- get out or he will take her to court. She is still living in the house right now but because it is registered in his name she has no hope of beating him in a legal battle. She's going to have to move out."Soon after, on March 29, Zayn Malik refuted that he would ever evict Perrie Edwards' mom and that the house he got for her was free of charge for as long as she wants, according to Sugarscape. They added that the reason Debbie Edwards was moving out was due to moving in with her new boyfriend.
One other reason that Perrie Edwards and Zayn Malik are still texting in mid-June may pertain to the sale of their "love nest." According to Homes and Property, Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards sold their London mansion in March.
At the same time, Perrie Edwards moved into a smaller $1 million mansion in Surrey.
As far as Zayn Malik's real estate details, the last news was that he was looking for houses in both Los Angeles and London for himself and his new girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, as reported by Belfast Telegraph on May 5.
