It's now been approximately 209 days, 11 hours, 53 minutes and errr 15, 16, 17 seconds since we first published the story revealing that Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards had ended their engagement.
Both sides have very much moved on since then but somehow we're STILL writing ridiculous stories connecting the two of 'em together, and this time it's those post-BRIT Awards pics which are to blame.
Apparently Zayn wasn't too happy to see Perrie leaving the BRITs in a car with Louis Tomlinson, and a secret source reckons that sarcastic text messages have been sent. DRAMA.
Perrie and Louis (and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, which most rumour mills seem to have conveniently forgotten) left the BRIT Awards in a car together last week, confirming that they're still good pals after all these years and all these splits.
But while Eleanor Calder and Sophia Smith seemed to choose the Z Team this week, Zayn was reportedly annoyed by the pics of Perrie and Louis hanging out together, and Closer magazine's insiders claim that he and Louis have basically cut all ties now.
"Zayn sent Louis a sarcastic message the day after the BRITs saying: 'Thanks for the loyalty' and asked him to leave Perrie alone," a secret source spilled.
"He feels Louis is taking sides after their split, but Louis doesn't think he owes Zayn anything.
"Louis and Perrie have always been good friends, and she's been a good support to him. Louis had made it clear that he's got no intention of cutting her out of his life."
Oh no, NOT SARCASTIC TEXT MESSAGES. How ever will we all recover from this dramatic development. Will Louis ever be the same? Only time will tell.
*hair flick*. Thoughts on all of this drama to us @Sugarscape please gang.
