The world was shocked and saddened in March when Zayn Malik announced he was leaving One Direction.
Many people have tried to deal with their grief by deflecting blame from the former boy band member, and that has meant blaming his fiancée, Perrie Edwards.

Since Zayn's departure from 1D, the Little Mix member has been compared to Yoko Ono, who was credited with breaking up The Beatles.
But now, Perrie is speaking out about how the decision actually came about, telling OK!:
"Zayn is his own person and makes his own decisions. Whatever he wanted to do during that time, I was going to support him 100 per cent."
And she says that just because she supported him, that doesn't mean she's the one who convinced him to leave the group:
"So whatever people think, whether they know the truth or don't, it's his decision. He's made it, the boys have supported him, I've supported him and his fans have been incredible, it's just the way it is."
But how does she feel about the whole thing? The 21-year-old says she's feeling good now that Zayn has branched out to do his own thing:
"Yes. I'm happy if he's happy."
Awwww! We're so happy she's so supportive of her hot husband-to-be! No official wedding date has been set in stone, but look out, Little Mix!
Perrie confessed she's gonna be a "bridezilla"! LOL!
