Does Little Mix member Perrie Edwards have a new boyfriend?
The 23-year-old songstress sparked dating rumors with fellow British celebrity Luke Pasqualino after they were spotted on a date last week.
After being introduced by a mutual friend, Edwards and Pasqualino reportedly went to see “Aladdin” in London’s West End together and then headed off to Mayfair nightspot, Mahiki.
“It was their first date, but things are going well,” a source told The Mirror on Friday, Aug. 19. “They met on a night out and really hit it off, then arranged to meet up — and it seemed like they had lots of fun.”
“Hopefully, it blossoms into something more,” the source added.
On Sunday, however, Edwards dismissed speculations suggesting that Pasqualino is her new boyfriend. Although the songstress admitted that she and the hunky “The Musketeers” actor are getting to know each other, she said that she’s still single.
When asked if she and bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock are the only Little Mix members who are not in a relationship, Perrie told The Mirror on Sunday: “We are! [I'd look for] someone honest, fit, a hunky man.”
To prove that she’s indeed looking for a new man, the “Secret Love Song” hitmaker added, “I said in the group chat I'd love to do speed-dating, it'd be so much fun!”
Edwards’ previous relationship was with Zayn Malik. She began dating the former One Direction band member in May 2012. They got engaged in August 2013 but split in August 2015.
Four months after, Edwards admitted that going through that very public split with Malik had been extremely difficult for her, but she was hoping that all her personal romantic troubles and how she coped with them could help other women move on from their own break-ups.
“As difficult as it can be to have your private life plastered all over the press and on social media every day, I guess the one plus side is that it is like a looking glass for other women to look in and relate to," Edwards told Fabulous magazine (via Just Jared Jr.) last December . “I learn new things every day, but I've learned that no matter what life throws at you, you take it day by day.”
