Zayn Malik of One Direction has gotten a tattoo of his girlfriend’s face on his arm. The 20-year-old showed his love for Perrie Edwards, a British singer, earlier this week while in Maryland.
Malik and fellow bandmates Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson visited a tattoo parlor while in the city Tuesday. The tattoo shows Edwards wearing a beanie hat. The new ink is on Malik’s right arm.
Payne decided not to get a tattoo, while Tomlinson asked for a spider web design. Back in August, Malik was accused of cheating on Edwards, after celebrity blogger Perez Hilton posted a video of the then 19-year-old allegedly asking a girl to come back to his hotel room in half an hour.
The video was taken by a woman who was staying in the same hotel as Malik. Shortly before the video was posted on the gossip site, the One Direction singer deleted his Twitter account, leaving behind 5 million followers.
"The reason i don't tweet as much as i use to, is because I'm sick of all the useless opinions and hate that i get daily goodbye twitter [sic]," he wrote.
"One Direction's Zayn Malik DELETES His Twitter! Called it! I said he'd be the first to leave 1D! This is the beginning," Hilton tweeted after Malik deleted his account. His tweet caused backlash from One Direction fans. Malik has since rejoined Twitter.
The following month, Hilton accused Malik of being a serial cheater, as Hilton has a recorded phone call on his site that allegedly has Malik inviting fans to his room for a hookup. Hilton claims the voice is Malik’s, though it has yet to be confirmed.
“Seems like if Zayn just wants all the extra play, he might as well just stay single!” Hilton said.
