Biography

Perrie Edwards (born 10.07.1993)
Perrie Edwards is an English singer in the four-piece girlband Little Mix; the first band to ever win on 'The X Factor'.

Childhood: Perrie Edwards was born in South Shields, Tyne and Wear, England. Her parents are Debbie Duffy and Alexander Edwards.

Musical career: Perrie Edwards auditioned as a solo artist on 'The X Factor' in 2011 with the song 'You Oughta Know' by Alanis Morissette. However when she failed to make it through bootcamp, she was put together with her fellow reject Jesy Nelson into the group Faux Pas with Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall in the group Orion. When both bands failed to get to judges' houses, they were put together as a four piece and named Rhythmix while being mentored by Tulisa Contostavlos. Later in the competition they were forced to change their name to Little Mix after they were unable to trademark Rhythmix due to a children's music charity having the same name. They were announced the winners of the series making them the first ever group to win the show. They have had two number one singles; their Damien Rice cover 'Cannonball' and 'Wings'; and their debut album 'DNA' peaked at number 3 in the UK charts.

Personal life: Perrie Edwards is currently dating Zayn Malik from the boyband One Direction. In January 2013, it was reported that Zayn Malik had cheated on her by sleeping with Australian waitress Courtney Webb. He has since denied these reports and they have maintained their relationship.

Zayn Malik And Perrie Edwards Still Together? One Direction Star Spotted At Little Mix Gig


Zayn Malik Perrie Edwards One Direction Little Mix

One Direction’s Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards of Little Mix haven’t enjoyed the most comfortable of month’s in their relationship, what with all those cheating allegations going on and all; however, it appeared that they were trying to get through it after the alleged wantaway Malik was spotted at Little Mix’s show in Liverpool over the weekend, suggesting that the pair are attempting to reconcile.

Malik has come under fire from Little Mix fans after Australian stripper Courtney Webb took her story to The Sun after allegedly bedding the One Direction man, who has been seeing Edwards for over a year. Protesting that she didn’t know he was, Webb at the time said “I’m not a One Direction fan, I don’t follow what they are up to. So when it clicked that he had a girlfriend I got more and more angry. I definitely don’t think it’s the first time he’s done this. I feel sorry for Perrie — she doesn’t know this is going on. It’s wrong and has to stop.”

The Daily Mirror were the ones who spotted Malik at the show at the weekend, safely away from Little Mix fans on the balcony. Bizarrely he gave a wave; we’re pretty sure he was receiving some alternate hand gestures back, not least because Webb, in her interview, went on to say “He just said, ‘Let’s chill in my room’. We sat on his bed and before I could even say anything he started snogging my face off, kissing me passionately. It just snowballed from there. We fooled around then had sex. It was amazing.” Eek.
