Little Mix will reportedly join One Direction on their European leg of their On the Road Again world tour, it is being alleged. According to several outlets, the decision was solely made by Harry Styles, who says he’s disgusted in the way his ex-pal, Zayn Malik, has handled the breakup to former girlfriend Perrie Edwards.
Malik, who is believed to have dumped the songstress via text before going on an endless Twitter rant against his former lover, was blindsided by the move which will see Little Mix continue their promotional duties ahead of the release of their third studio album later this year. While Zayn may have hoped to see the girl group crumble now that they are no longer affiliated with him, Little Mix are actually doing better than ever.
Styles, who had kept in touch with Perrie over the years through their mutual friendship, was devastated to learn about her split from Zayn, sources allege. All the One Direction fellas were stunned because they knew just how much she loved Malik, but it seems that the solo career thing has really pushed the departed 1D member into a new direction. New recording contract, leading the single life, and having thrown endless diss tweets against his former group and his girlfriend, are showing clear signs that Zayn is heading down a nasty road.
Fortunately for Perrie, Harry is siding with her, and is reportedly hoping that Little Mix can join them as One Direction’s opening acts next month when they head on out for their European tour. This will be great for Perrie, who will be reuniting with some familiar faces, along with the great news that the tour will help boost sales for LM’s upcoming album — something Zayn definitely won’t be happy about.
The touring plans are still being negotiated, but it seems that Little Mix are totally on board. Harry has seemingly become a great support system to Perrie, who supposedly handled the breakup by continuing her North American promo for Mix’s latest single, Black Magic. She’s using her music career as a distraction to hide her pain, so the tour would be a great way to keep the singer away from thinking about the fact that she had been dumped from a man she saw herself spending the rest of her life with.
