Music bosses were said to have got tough with the 22-year-old , who left One Direction last month, as Perrie and her Little Mix bandmates prepare to launch their next album.

But a rep for the star has now denied claims telling the Mail that the story is 'absolute fabricated nonsense' and 'not true at all.'
The Mirror had reported that senior music bosses were worried about Zayn wanting to follow Perrie on tour 'like a puppy dog'.
A source reportedly told the newspaper: “Senior figures are worried that with Zayn being so lost and confused after his One Direction split, he will just want to hang out with Perrie to make him happy.
“Having distractions is not what [Little Mix] need. Perrie already faces dozens of media questions about Zayn, when the focus should be on their music.”
Last week, Zayn and Perrie headed off on holiday together in a bid to put claims that Zayn had cheated on his fiancée whilst on tour in Thailand behind them.
Zayn later shared a snap from their holiday in the sun of the pair looking loved up on his Instagram page.
