Perrie Edwards has been enjoying the single life after breaking up with Zayn Malik, so fans were shocked to hear the the singer was rumored to be dating Joey Essex. Even though reports have been saying that she has been casually seeing The Only Way Is Essex star, her reps say that they aren't a couple — but they have exchanged numbers!

"Perrie is not dating Joey. Joey Essex exchanged numbers with Perrie Edwards at The Pride Of Britain Awards and met up a couple of times however, Joey is single," her rep told The Daily Mail.

Even if they're not dating yet, it seems like they did get kind of friendly with each other. Maybe it just didn't work out! But we love seeing her get out there and flirt with new guys. The Bradford Bad Boy has made it clear that he's seeing other girls, and she should be able to do the same.

Do you think they would make a cute couple? Let us know in the comments!
