As we reported yesterday, Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards and One Direction star Zayn Malik spent hours talking through the claim made by waitress Courtney Webb that she slept with Zayn while Perrie was away on tour.
And today it’s been revealed that following those talks, Zayn stayed the night in Perrie’s hotel room in Nottingham, prompting speculation that Perrie has given him the benefit of the doubt over the debacle, which – as we also reported – insiders believed she would.
One source told The Sun, “Things are far from over between Zayn and Perrie…
“He came and stayed in the Little Mix hotel, where Perrie was booked in with her bandmates.
“Everybody gave them their space. They needed to talk things through before Perrie went on stage in front of a crowd.”
Meanwhile, One Direction fans – and of course, Perrie’s fans – have taken to Twitter to issue yet more death threats to Webb.
One tweet reads, “courtney webb… we will find you and kill you. sincerely directioners.”
Another states, “This hate on Zayn needs to stop. Do you really think Zayn would cheat? No. He has respect for women and he loves Perrie. End of.”
A fan of Zayn’s wrote, “You are a freaking idiot if you believe that Zayn cheated on Perrie. I will personally haunt you in your sleep and maybe kill you.”
And another wrote, “Seriously I’ll kill courtney webb if Zayn and Perrie break up because of her. Bitch you knew he’s taken. You just wanted fame and money bitch.”
Of the alleged night with Zayn, Courtney recalled, “Zayn looked me in the eyes and said, ‘You’re so hot, you’re so fit, you’re beautiful’.
“We sat on his bed and before I could even say anything he started snogging my face off, kissing me passionately.
“It just snowballed from there. We fooled around, then had sex. It was amazing.”
She later took photographs of Zayn sleeping and described items in his home, including an urn containing the ashes of Zayn’s dog, who drowned at the singer’s home last year.
Do you think Zayn and Perrie’s relationship is strong enough to get through this crisis?
For now, here’s a look at them in happier times…
