'One Direction' fans are all heart-broken with Zayn Mallick's departure from the boy band. But it looks like Zayn is happy to be on a vacation with his fiancée Perrie Edwards, as he posted selfies of them both kissing and hugging, on Instagram.
The former One Directioner and his fiancée recently flew out of the UK for their make-or-break holiday and posted quite a few of PDA pics. One them captioned "oui" shows the 22-year-old star kissing the cheeks of the 'Little Mix' star as she blushes under the sun. Another snap taken by Zayn's sister Walihya shows him pointing towards the camera while Perrie sticks her tongue out.
The couple had been engaged since 2013 and planned to hasten their marriage when Zayn got pictured holding hands with Lauren Richardson while holidaying in Thailand. He refuted the cheating claims and flew back to London for crisis talks with his partner.
Even after putting things to rest, Zayn was again brought under the cheating radar when Swedish model Martina Olsson urged Perrie to break off her engagement to Zayn claiming that she also had an affair with the heartthrob in Thailand.
So to sort things out, Zayn opted out of the One Direction band's tour and on 25 March, quit the band explaining that he wants to feel like a normal person and avoid the spotlight.
In his departing statement, he said: "I'd like to apologise to the fans if I've let anyone down, but I have to do what feels right in my heart. I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight."
Shocked at his departure from the the band, his fans went berserk, accusing his partner of persuading him to quit the group, and naming her as "the new Yoko Ono", referring to John Lennon's wife who was mainly blamed for The Beatles' split.
But Zayn maintained that she was not to blame, and insisted that "she's a good girl"."She's always supportive."
