More than a year after the pop stars ended their two-year engagement, the Little Mix singer has revealed that Malik (whom she does not identify by name) broke it off via text message.
“It was horrible, the worst time in my life. A four-year relationship, two-year engagement ended by a simple text message. Just like that,” Edwards, 23, wrote in a leaked excerpt from the group’s latest book One World, confirmed as legitimate by PEOPLE.
The former One Direction singer, who is now dating model Gigi Hadid, previously addressed rumors that he had broken up with Edwards that way, telling TheFadermagazine that he has too much respect for Edwards “than to end anything over text message.”
