According to The Sun newspaper, an Australian waitress named Courtney Webb, 21, claimed that she’d had a fling with One Direction’s Zayn Malik, who is dating Perrie Edwards from UK girl band Little Mix.Courtney alleged that the 20-year-old star slept with her at his home last week, and assured her that his girlfriend was “away on tour”.
Zayn reportedly flew straight to Nottingham after One Direction’s performance at the NRJ Music Awards in Cannes on Saturday night (26.01.13) after the scandal broke, where he convinced his girlfriend of nine months to continue working on their relationship. A source told The Mirror, “It’s a difficult time, but they are trying to work through this and stay together.”
“They had a lot to talk about over the weekend, but both felt it was best to see each other before she had to get on stage on Monday. They want to make this work.”
But it doesn’t look like Zayn is completely off the hook. He was reportedly banned from attending the Little Mix show where Perrie was performing on Monday night. The source said, “They spent time together but Zayn didn’t come along to the show. As far as everyone is concerned he’s currently off-limits.”
The Sun reports that Perrie insists she is fine despite the scandal, “I'm fine. Today is really exciting as it's the first day of the tour and I'm just having fun. I love being on tour."
