He just won't confirm whether he's dating Perrie or not.
However, it seems that, if Zayn was in a relationship with a fan, he would only be too happy to tell everyone the truth about it.
He explained to Top of The Pops:
‘No, you shouldn’t keep it a secret just because she’s a fan. If she’s your girlfriend, then she’s your girlfriend.’
Zayn also decided to explained that he has never lied about a relationship he’s been in with anyone before:
‘No, I’ve always been honest about that. What’s the point of lying? You’ll just get found out and then you’ll look an idiot.’
Well, we suppose he’s never lied, but he’s never really been forthcoming with the truth, right?
We suppose it’s a tricky situation to be in, because technically he should be allowed some privacy.
But if the Directioners want to find out something, they sure will.
We’re right, aren’t we?
