This has got to be the story of Zayn Malik's life by now, but you can't blame him for taking issue with the more hurtful rumors that make the rounds.
The One Direction heartthrob took to Twitter in haste Wednesday afternoon to blast cheating rumors that were just starting to bubble up from his stop in Thailand. Pics of him looking cozy with a tattoo-sporting blond made their way to Instagram, and...
Cue the suggestions that he was stepping out on his fiancée.
"I'm 22 years old... I love a girl named Perrie Edwards," Zayn tweeted. "And there's a lot of jealous f--ks in this world I'm sorry for what it looks like x."
So he also seemed to be apologizing to any of the fans out there who might have misconstrued what was occurring in those photos. One fan (of Edwards, at least) had indeed written, "if you're cheating on perrie I will be so disappointed in you @zaynmalik."
Of course, this is just one instance in a long line of rumo(u)rs that have shadowed 1D since inception, let along targeted Zayn and Perrie. They've been engaged since the summer of 2013 and have weathered their share of split speculation.
Zayn admitted in November that he and the 21-year-old Little Mix singer hadn't started planning any sort of wedding yet, but after he popped the question he gushed that he had "never been more happy" in his life.
