It's been an emotional year for One Direction fans! First, Zayn Malik left the band, then Louis Tomlinson got a girl pregnant, and now it's being reported that Zayn and his longtime fiancée Perrie Edwards have ended their engagement.
According to People, the former 1D guy called things off with the Little Mix member, and she's not taking things well.

"She's been putting on a brave face as Little Mix have had promotion to do, but she's obviously devastated," a source said.
One of Perrie's bandmates posted a photo of the 22-year-old sans her engagement ring, which seemingly solidifies the fact that there's trouble in paradise.
While it's not too surprising that the couple didn't work out (they got engaged at just 20 years old and hadn't spent much time together with their busy schedules), it's pretty unfortunate for Zayn since he has a portrait of Perrie tattooed on his arm. It's going to be pretty painful to get that sucker removed.

The couple met backstage at the X Factor in 2011 when 1D was performing during Little Mix's season and started dating in December of that year. Zayn proposed in August 2013.
"Perrie's being supported by her bandmates," PEOPLE's source added. "but she's really in pieces about this."
