Zayn Malik shared loved-up snap with mystery blonde while ex Perrie goes on selfie spree
He may have ended his engagement less than two months ago, but it looks like Zayn Malik has already moved on.
The former One Direction singer (22) had been dating Little Mix's Perrie Edwards since 2011 when they first met on The X Factor, but after his shock departure from the world's biggest boyband, he also cut ties with his fiancée.
It appears he's already back in the dating game though after he shared a loved-up selfie with a mystery blonde on Instagram.
In the shot, a shirtless Zayn and the mystery woman look cosy as they playfully pose for the camera, while many users were quick to comment on the striking resemblance she bears to Perrie.
It was originally repoted to be Teen Wolf actress Gage Golightly (22), but she was quick to dismiss the claims, writing on her on own Instagram page: "Hi everyone, just wanted to clarify that I am not the girl in the photo with Zayn Malik. But what a lucky girl. Love y'all."
Meanwhile, Perrie, who recently said she's "having a blast" in the wake of her split, appears to have taken the social media bait and has upped her daily selfie intake.
The popular singer shared a makeup free selfie yesterday, captioned "Rise and shine" and has shared a number of photos with her dogs.
After she publicly cried following their break-up, she said she's doing better with the help of loved ones and her bandmates.
“I’m having an absolute blast,” she told UK newspaper The Mirror, noting going out with girlfriends is the best. “We have a bit of banter with guys in nightclubs... I love it.
“I love going out. I’m feeling brilliant and I’m in a good place – and I’ve got new hair. [Little Mix bandmate] Jade can be a bad influence, but she always looks after me and makes sure I don’t get too drunk.
