DailyMail- Perrie Edwards has emerged for the first time since her fiancé Zayn Malik dramatically quit One Direction.
Grinning from ear-to-ear, the Little Mix star left the London house she shares with her boyfriend with her engagement ring still prominently displayed on her finger.
Perrie, 21, has yet to comment on the matter of her partner's huge career decision, but her smile showed off exactly how she felt, despite the fact fans of the boy band on Twitter had labelled her 'the Yoko Ono of 1D' after blaming his departure.
Zayn, 22, had returned from Thailand where the band had been touring, arriving at 5am on Friday to talk to the blonde star in the wake of a picture being revealed of him getting cosy with another woman.
Almost immediately, he denied that there was anything going on between him and the blonde, who was later identified as Essex girl Lauren Richardson.
His quick jetting across the world on Thursday evening to have crisis talks with his long-term partner threw their relationship into the spotlight, and there were doubts over the state of their union.
Zayn shocked fans the world over when he announced on Wednesday that he was leaving One Direction after five years as part of the world's biggest boyband.
Okay now we are getting somewhere. You almost had me Zayn. I almost respected your decision to get out of the limelight. However, this makes way more sense than "I can't stand being rich, famous, and popular". That's the politically correct answer. The actual answer is "I hate that I have to argue with my fiancé every day because every time I cheat on her it is broadcast to a national audience". This is the worst diagnosis of pussy whipped I have ever seen. Listen, we have all been there. Blinded by puppy love. It's brought the strongest of men to their knees. Pussy is the cause of nearly every detrimental decision made by a man ever. Don't bite the apple Zayn! Pandora opened up her box and Zayn went balls deep without hesitation. Dude dove head first off the gravy train in order to not leave his girl behind. That's pretty admiral for the end of a romantic comedy, not so much as a real life decision. That's real smart dude, why don't you chop down the money tree in your backyard so your future wife has a place to sunbathe while your at it.
Does the 21 year old have any guidance is his life? Everyone has the friend that stayed with their girlfriend in college. Raises hand. Guilty as charged. Biggest mistake ever. From the drunkest of college student to the richest of pop star, those relationships have a 0% success rate. Someone call Rory McIlroy, this kid needs a life coach. Love may conquer a lot, but it doesn't conquer all. It might conquer one or two strange pieces of ass. Might even conquer 3-5. However, I'll be damned if it conquers youth, millions of dollars, and the conquest of any and every 18-23 year old female of your choosing.
This may be the biggest mistake anyone has ever made in the history of decisions. This is worse than Robert Durst leaving his mic on while he goes to the bathroom. It's worse than Len Bias choosing the nose candy. Worse than Chris Webber losing track of timeouts. Sacrificing everything at 21 to get married? Getting married at 21 is a mistake for the most average of Joes. Sacrificing all the money, women, and fun for one vagina for the rest of your life? Real smart Zayn. So what happens first? How fast does this kid end up with a murder charge or a coke habit? Divorce is a forgone conclusion. I give this relationship two weeks before full blown resentment. Only way this relationship works is if this chick doesn't have a single complaint or opinion for the rest of her life. Life is about compromise. Zayn gave up as close to everything as you possibly can. I think it's only fair that Ms. Edwards give up a say in everything forever. Happy wife happy life my ass. This guy just flushed his life down the toilet. If there is going to be someone that will be rehashing past decisions and arguments in this relationship for once it won't be the female. Only one direction this relationship is trending. Ready the divorce papers.
