Rebecca Ferguson Speaks Out About Relationship With One Direction’s Zayn Malik
British former X Factor star Rebecca Ferguson has spoken out about her hurt caused by One Direction’s Zayn Malik, after he brands their relationship a mistake.
Rebecca and Zayn first met when they were contestants on 2010’s X Factor UK. Soon after the competition ended, the pair surprisingly started dating, although the relationship only lasted four months.
When questioned about his brief romance with the soulful singer in an interview with New magazine last week, Zayn admitted he believed his decision to date Rebecca who is six years his senior and has two children, was a mistake:
“It shouldn’t have happened. It was just a wrong idea from the start. It did end quite badly so we don’t talk any more. We’re not in touch at all.”
After hearing what the One Direction star had to say about their relationship, Rebecca decided to speak out, telling the same magazine:
“I was so shocked by what he said! But I’m not going to retaliate.’
When asked why the relationship ended badly, Rebecca was reluctant to give too much information:
“I’m not one to reveal big secrets about what’s gone on in a relationship, and I think he was probably put up to this. I know him too well to think he’d say it deliberately. I won’t talk about what went wrong between us but he knows what happened. And it is what it is.”
Since separating from Rebecca, Zayn is now dating Perrie Edwards, a band member of last years X Factor UK winner’s, girl band Little Mix.
