It’s around this time in the ‘celebrity split’ narrative that we find photos in the press of one of the famous people involved looking upset and forlorn, which is probably why Perrie Edwards can expect a whole lot of paparazzi following her around for the next few days.
The girl group, who remain the only band to have won ‘The X Factor’ since its launch in 2004, are currently promoting their latest single ‘Black Magic’ in America, having already topped the UK charts for three consecutive weeks.
However, their promo trip has been somewhat blighted by the news that Perrie’s engagement to former One Direction singer Zayn Malik has come to an end, with new reports suggesting he ended their relationship over text message.
Nevertheless, if Perrie is feeling glum about the split, then she definitely isn’t showing it, which is probably due to the fact that her energetic bandmates won’t let her feel down for too long.
In new pictures that would make the Spice Girls proud, Leigh-Anne is seen putting on a show for the photographers, high-kicking and dancing around, much to the amusement of the rest of the group.
All we can say is that we hope our friends would distract photographers with their hilarious posing if we were having a bit of an off day…
Zayn is yet to acknowledge his split from Perrie on social media, apart from a few rather cryptic tweets, which we’re still trying to get to the bottom of.
Meanwhile, Perrie told E! News earlier this week that she was “doing good”, despite the break-up.
