They're the newest One Direction romance and have been blighted by constant accusations and rumours of cheating, but, speaking of his relationship with Little Mix's Perrie Edwards, Zayn Malik claims things are going “well” and that they're “really happy”.
The 19 year-old went public with Perrie in April and despite spending most of the time since on tour in the US, the 'One Thing' singer claims things are going well.
“She's just cool man. She just gets it,” he told The Sun, “she's like me, she's just very relaxed.”
“It's going really well.”
Recently bandmate Liam Payne broke up with girlfriend of two years Danielle Peazer, with friends claiming work commitments tore the couple apart, but this doesn't seem to be an issue for Zayn.

“We do get to see each other quite a bit,” he revealed, “Surprisingly we manage to make time for each other.”
Both being in bands appear to have helped with Zayn claiming, they “understand the job”. Does that mean Perrie accepts the cheating rumours?
A tape claiming to be a record Zayn telling a girl how to get back to his hotel room surfaced last month as did a similar video earlier this summer and while it's unknown when they were taken, it's clear things have happened with the boys on the road.
A source told Entertainmentwise that Zayn had asked security to approach a girl for her number during the Olympic Closing Ceremony rehearsals, while he was very much with Perrie. Well if Zayn does step out of line, he'll have to face Perrie's brother, who according to the singer is “a big bloke.”
“I went up to meet her Mum and family the other month,” he revealed. “I was a bit scared of her brother to be honest — he’s in the Navy. He’s a big bloke.”
“I thought he was going to be a bit defensive of his sister but he was really cool,” Zayn added.
Better make sure you behave yourself then!
