Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards End Their Engagement

The former One Direction member proposed two years ago to the Little Mix singer.

— -- Zayn Malik is single again.

After about two years of dating, Malik, 22, proposed to Edwards, also 22, in the summer 2013.

Earlier this year, however, reports began to circulate that their relationship was strained. In March, Malik left One Direction's tour to "recuperate" at home and the next week, he announced that he was leaving the band for good.

"My life with One Direction has been more than I could ever have imagined. But, after five years, I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band," he wrote on Facebook at the time. "I have to do what feels right in my heart. I am leaving because I want to be a normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight."
