Zayn Malik's ex-fiancee Perrie Edwards looks like a desperate chick who's still longing for the guy who dumped her in a new Little Mix music video -- but we've learned it's not what it seems.
The vid for "Love Me Like You" dropped Friday, and fans instantly noticed the engagement diamond on Perrie's finger. People were wondering why she was still wearing it, since they broke up 2 months ago. Was it a dig at Zayn or wishful thinking?
It's neither. We found out the video was filmed around 6 months ago, when Perrie and Zayn were still a thing. Sources who were on the set tell us she kept the ring on during shooting because they were very much in love.
But y'know ... things change. The former One Direction singer broke things off in August, and Perrie didn't take it well.
Silver lining: Perrie gets some pub for her new song.
Ariana Grande and Niall Horan hung out way past their bedtime Monday night -- but don't get your panties in a bunch just yet 1Ders.
Our Ariana sources say the One Direction singer was invited to her concert in London Monday night. After the performance, she and Niall hung out backstage, but it was anything but intimate. Ariana's manager Scooter Braun and both of their entourages were also there.
After the backstage pow-wow, the group headed off to Cirque Le Soir nightclub -- and stayed out till 3:30 AM. But when the fun was over ... we're told they went their separate ways.
Too bad it wasn't a real hook-up since the normally rabid 1D fans have actually been pretty positive about Ariana. Must be the wild video of their after-party that won 'em over.
Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson got a couple of fabulous parting gifts Friday night from an L.A. club ... 2 more than agreeable chicks.
Two of the remaining members of One Direction were leaving Project L.A. when their bodyguards tried a feeble diversionary tactic ... Liam, Louis and the 2 women all left the club separately, but their cover was clearly blown because they all ended up in the same car.
One thing's for sure ... the bloom is off the rose. Parking enforcement officers are none too pleased that Zayn Malik left the group. Check out the video.
Zayn Malik's exit from One Direction apparently wasn't as friendly as they wanted us to believe ... because Zayn and Louis Tomlinson are publicly trash talking each other.
Zayn just posted this heavily-filtered photo of himself with record producer Naughty Boy. Louis jumped on it, tweeting, "Remember when you were 12 and you used to think those Mac filters for your picture were cool haha! Some people still do HA!"
Zayn was locked and loaded, firing back, "Remember when you had a life and stopped making bitchy comments about mine?"
People connected with 1D were insisting to us when Zayn left ... everyone was cool about his departure ... which made no sense.
One Direction's Louis Tomlinson is easing back into bachelorhood ... by hooking up with multiple chicks at once -- or so it seemed when a pack of at least 3 went to his London hotel room.
Tomlinson was partying at Cirque Le Soir Wednesday night ... before the after-party moved to the Soho Hotel. Best part of the rendezvous -- the girls' walk of shame Thursday morning -- although maybe it's more like walk of fame ... when you've raged with a One Direction singer all night?
Tomlinson broke up with GF Eleanor Calder last month after 4 years together.
Harry Styles is about to go the way of Zayn Malik -- bolting from the ranks of One Direction ... at least according to acclaimed director and honorary 1Der Morgan Spurlock.
Spurlock directed the docufilm "One Direction: This Is Us" -- which, outside of Simon Cowell, makes him the foremost expert on the band ... among grown men. Morgan told our photog the band will be fine as a foursome for now, but it's only a matter of time before Harry splits.
But even that won't kill the band. Check out Morgan's prediction for Niall, Louis and Liam.
Think flattops -- on white guys. It just might work ...
Zayn Malik broke his silence Friday night -- come to think about it we haven't heard him speak before -- and he heaped praise on his former band, One Direction.
Zayn accepted a trophy at the Asian Awards in London. The award was for Outstanding Achievement in Music. Interesting, because it's the only award Zayn can accept independent of the band. He's getting it because of his Pakistani heritage.
