Fans of Little Mix star Perrie Edwards and her One Direction boyfriend Zayn Malik will of course know that they’re going through a tough time right now given that Australian waitress Courtney Webb claims she slept with Zayn recently.
As we reported, she claims to have had sex with Zayn while Perrie was on tour with Little Mix, and bravely, since the claim surfaced in the press, Perrie has pressed on with the tour, and has even found time to talk things over with Zayn.
However, though Perrie has vowed to stand by Zayn and has “given him the benefit of the doubt”, while some friends have urged her to ditch him, others, such as her LM band mates Jade Thirlwall, Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock have been there to quietly support her.
And an insider has told the Daily Mirror that that’s exactly what Perrie needs right now.
The source said, “Perrie spent the weekend with her mum, Debbie, who went along to the Welsh legs of their tour with Jade’s mum, Norma…
“And then the Zayn thing happened so she had to squeeze in time to fix their relationship before rehearsals.
“She hadn’t had time to chat to her girls about the whole situation.
“Most bands normally go hell for leather on the big press night, but Little Mix just sat up chatting.
“It was exactly what Perrie needed. She seems to be planning to stick with him and she needs the support of her mates at the moment.”
The paper’s reporter also spent time with the Little Mix girls before they set off on the next leg of their tour to Scotland, and it seems the talk was all about boys, and how LM are surrounded by them on their trip!
Jade said, “All the dancers are boys, the rest of the team are boys.”
And Leigh-Anne added, “We find it really hard. They have really boyish conversations and it’s hard to get involved – they talk about girls and stuff.”
However, she added, “One of the dancers does magic tricks and they blow your mind.”
Here’s a look at the girls answering questions from fans recently…
