Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards have never revealed the exact reason behind their split last year. However it seems Zayn is ready to talk about it, after he hinted that he simply “fell out of love”. Eeek!

In his latest interview with Complex magazine, the star spoke about how many songs on his album was about heartbreak, he revealed, “There’s a lot of falling in love and a lot of falling out of love. It's probably 60/40, falling out of love.”

The 23-year-old then went on to say, “If you’re in a really good place, you can write a really good, upbeat song. When you're in a [expletive] place you can write a downbeat [expletive] ballad! That's just the way it is.”

Zayn famously ended his relationship with Perrie just weeks after leaving One Direction in March 2015. We hope one day Zayn and Perrie can at least be friends.
