Zayn declares his love for Perrie
One Direction star Zayn Malik has declared his love for fiancee Perrie Edwards after pictures emerged of him apparently close to another woman.
The heartthrob, whose fiancee is a member of girl band Little Mix, told his 14.1 million Twitter followers: "I'm 22 years old ... I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there's a lot of jealous f***s in this world I'm sorry for what it looks like x"
A picture, which has been widely shared and published online, shows Malik with his arm around the bare stomach of a woman in a cropped top.
They look like they are posing for the picture and are both smiling, appearing to be cheek-to-cheek.
A second photo, taken from behind, shows Malik standing close to the woman and their hands and arms appear to be interlinked.
The pair appear to share a love of tattoos, with both of their arms adorned in designs and the woman also has a tattoo down her side.
Last year, Malik revealed his mother has given him grief about his ever-growing tattoo collection.
He said he reassured her that the designs covering his arms and body will look acceptable when he reaches later life.
His extensive collection includes a large microphone, cartoonish lettering and a stylised picture of his fiancee.
