Former One Direction member Zayn Malik has broken off his engagement to fiancee, Perrie Edwards, of the band Little Mix.

The breakup between the two 22-year-old pop stars took place two weeks ago. The couple got engaged in August 2013.

“She’s been putting on a brave face, as Little Mix have had promotion to do, but she’s obviously devastated,” a source told People.

Malik left One Direction in March. In July, the singer signed with RCA records.
