When singer Zayn Malik decided to quit the British boyband One Direction, there were devastated people all over the world, with many wanting to understand why he would want to leave. As was expected, a lot of people turned their focus towards his girlfriend Perrie Edwards, blaming her for Zayn leaving the band. Perrie has now spoken out about her fiance quitting One Direction, insisting it was completely his own decision.
Edwards told Fabulous magazine, "People have said did I do this, did I do that? No matter what decision he made, I was always going to support him. If he'd wanted to stay, I would have supported him just the same as I have done since he's left. If he's happy then I'm happy. He's really good. Hopefully everyone understands that it was one of the hardest decisions he's ever made in his life."
She added, "I don't think anyone other than him really knows what he was feeling in his head and heart, but he made that decision and was 100 per cent on it. And the fans have been great and his family have been great... I love them all, they're lush. And obviously I've been there for him. As long as he's happy, that all that matters."
Despite the fact Perrie Edwards has come out and insisted she did not encourage Zayn Malik to quit One Direction, there will still be those fans who will blame her for it, unable to accept that he would do this to his fans through his own choice. Either way, we would just like to wish the two of them all the best for the future.
