As we reported yesterday, Australian waitress Courtney ‘CJ’ Webb claimed that she had bedded One Direction star Zayn Malik while his girlfriend, Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards was away from home touring.

The Sun originally ran the report, having interviewed Webb who produced photographs of Zayn sleeping to back up her claim that they’d slept together at his London home.

The paper reports today that Perrie and Zayn met up yesterday in a hotel in Nottingham to talk over Webb’s claims, saying of their rendezvous, “The couple emerged from the hotel just after midday — looking extremely tense. Zayn puffed on a cigarette before climbing into a cab with Perrie…”

However, insiders reckon that Perrie is likely to stay with Zayn and “give him the benefit of the doubt” over the infidelity allegations.

One said, “Perrie’s still deeply in love with Zayn. She’s very unlikely to end the relationship after this episode.

“The fact that they are physically together speaks volumes. It looks like she’s willing to give him a second chance.

“Her friends and bandmates know she’s head-over-heels in love with him. But she’ll certainly be keeping a closer eye on him after this incident.”

But the Daily Mirror reports that a friend of Perrie’s said, “She’s shocked by what this woman said and doesn’t know what to think. Her head’s all over the place.

“Her friends have been telling her that he’s a rat who will never change his ways.

“They’ve been saying that she’s gorgeous and successful, and should find a man who will treat her with the respect she deserves.

“Perrie really wants to believe in Zayn. She’s still in love with him and wants things to work out but feels humiliated by what this woman is going around saying.”

Meanwhile, Webb has received a number of threats on Twitter over her kiss and tell antics, with one 1D fan tweeting, “Courtney Webb… we will find you and kill you.”

Another wrote, “Courtney Webb needs to get hit upside the head with a baseball bat. Perrie is Zayn’s. Stupid whore.”

One tweeted:

“zayn will never do that things because zayn has a dignity to his love ones and he will never do that because he has a good quality of a person,he stand for what he is,for what his role in the media..thats my idol… ”

“This is a load of bullsh*t!!!! Zayn would never do that! If u believe it u r an idiot but That’s just my opinion! Unless he waz drunk and didn’t know What the hell he waz doing! That CJ waz probably making sh*t up 4 money! This whole thing just pisses me off!%>_< %" However, she’s apparently unfazed by the hatred, saying, “I’m not bothered about what the Directioners or anyone else has to say about me. “I know the truth of what happened with Zayn and have plenty of proof. “At the end of the day, he shouldn’t have cheated.” We will of course keep you posted on any new developments, but for now, here’s a look at Zayn and Perrie together in happier times…
