Look away, Perrie Edwards!

Zayn Malik and Perrie might have only recently called off their engagement, but that doesn't seem to be stopping the former One Direction member from moving on with someone else.

According to reports, Zayn, 22, has fallen for Burberry model Neelam Gill, 20, and she is already flying to Los Angeles to spend some time with her rumored new beau, who is renting a house while working on his solo album. "To live and die in LA, it's the place to be..." she tweeted Saturday.

Zayn and Neelam have been friends since they met in London earlier this year in March, but according to the Daily Mail, nothing ever happened between them while he was still engaged to Perrie. They later met up again in April at the Asian Awards, where Zayn picked up an award for Outstanding Contribution to Music.

But with Zayn so focused on his musical endeavors, will he have time for a new ladylove? Well, it seems that she is just as busy with her career as he is! Neelam, who is Burberry's first Indian model, was the face of the brand's Prorsum campaign last year. So focused on her career, Neelam is reportedly unsure whether or not she wants to participate in such a high-profile romance, a source told the publication.

So what else should you know about Zayn's rumored love interest? Here are five fun facts about the rising model star:

1. She made her catwalk debut modeling for Burberry.

2. Kanye West invited her to walk in his Adidas show during New York Fashion Week.

3. She starred in a Burberry advertisement with Romeo Beckham.

4. She didn't think she could ever be a model when she was growing up. She told Elle magazine, "I had glasses and braces. I was not one of the hot girls in school."

5. Her career has also allowed her to join the ranks of Suki Waterhouse, Jamie Campbell and Jourdan Dunn.
