The glamorous duo confirmed the news with separate tweets in which they spoke of their respect and admiration for each other.
But since then, a series of paparazzi shots showing a Zayn “looking forlorn” outside his Miami home have emerged and frankly, some of them are downright disgusting.
It’s not because Zayn is shirtless, or smoking a cigarette. These are bad habits in themselves.
No, the photos show him flexing his decorated biceps and puffing away on a cigarette before leaning over, placing one finger over his nostril, and blowing out a massive wad of snot.
The snot can be seen flying in different directions in several frames.
Bizarrely, the pop superstar, who was formerly a member of boyband One Direction,doesn’t seem fazed about getting snapped in the act and although poised close to the house seemed uninterested in ducking back inside for a tissue, a square or two of toilet paper or even (last resort) a paper towel.
So fans, if you really care about Zayn, send him boxes of tissues en masse, not to wipe away his tears but to blow that nose.
