1D fans blame Perrie Edwards for Zayn's exit by comparing her to Yoko Ono

2015-03-26 14:12

Los Angeles - Perrie Edwards has been compared to Yoko Ono by angry One Direction fans.

The Little Mix singer has been blamed for her fiancé Zayn Malik's shocking decision to quit the boy band on Wednesday, because he recently left their world tour due to stress after he was photographed holding hands with student Lauren Richardson in Thailand.

Shortly after the 22-year-old singer confirmed the news, one fan lashed out at his fiancée on Twitter, writing: "Perrie's the modern day Yoko Ono ... I can't believe this"


Yoko, who is the widow of the late John Lennon, was often blamed for breaking up the Beatles.

Meanwhile, other users suggested Perrie should quit Little Mix in order to support Zayn's desire to lead a "normal" life.

One fan wrote: "What just happened?! Did Perrie made him chose her over his career? Unfair, man. She should also quit if that's the case. Just an opinion (sic)."

Sources previously revealed that Zayn was willing to do anything to prove his commitment to the Move singer, 21, after he jetted back to the UK for crisis talks with her following cheating rumours earlier this month.

An insider said: "Zayn's found touring with the band a big strain this time around - he's seriously exhausted and wanted to let his hair down in Thailand.

"Now his plan has backfired and he's gutted Perrie has been left humiliated.

"He's told Perrie he'll do anything to please her and wants to stop pushing their wedding date back. He says he wants to get married this year. But Perrie is finding it hard to let go of what she's seen."
