Despite his on-off relationship with model Gigi Hadid and Perrie being linked to Mcfly bassist Dougie Poynter, it has been reported that Zayn has been trying to get back in touch with his former fiancÃ©.
After a short engagement, Perrie was left heartbroken after Zayn dumped her via text shortly after he left One Direction.
In November last year, he added salt to the wound when he began dating Gigi Hadid.
It’s has now been reported that Zayn has been bombarding Perrie with text messages over the last few weeks.
“Perrie unblocked Zayn’s number recently and the pair have been texting again” said an insider to Look magazine. “He’s on a mission to try to at least win back her friendship. They’ve only texted so far but he’d really like them to meet in person. ”
However, the Little Mix singer seems to be having none of it, with the source adding: “Perrie’s made it clear that she’s not interested in a reconciliation right now. Her friends are worried that it’s a bad idea to even chat to him, but she’s fine for now.”
The news comes not long after reports of stress between Zayn and Gigi, with them splitting up and reconciling soon afterwards – Gigi has been struggling to accept that he is back in touch with his ex.
The source explained: “Gigi loves Zayn very much but she can’t bear the thought that he’s been back in touch with his ex. She’s been doing everything she can to make their relationship work.”
It is suspected that after Zayn’s recent anxiety issues, he is reaching out to his former girlfriend for comfort – but this obviously isn’t doing his current relationship any good.
Despite this, Gigi recently took to twitter to send a message of support to her boyfriend, saying:
“Z – I’ve seen the battles you go through and the way you fight to get to a place that allows you to get up there for your fans.
Your bravery in those times makes me proud, but your honesty last night proved what you’re all about, being real.
