Is Zayn Malik being banned from seeing Perrie Edwards' Little Mix tour? While there's been plenty of drama surrounding Zayn's departure from One Direction and the swirl of cheating rumors, this latest report from The Mirror seemed pretty out there.
Simon Cowell reportedly wanted to keep Zayn from being with Perrie while she's on tour so that he doesn't distract her and her Little Mix bandmates.
A source told The Mirror (via Gossip Cop): "The law has been laid down to Zayn – you cannot follow Perrie around like a puppy dog. For Little Mix the next year is vital in terms of their progression...They have achieved a strong base following, but they need to convert that into becoming better known."
The insider added, "Having distractions is not what they need. Perrie already faces dozens of media questions about Zayn, when the focus should be on their music. This is not a case of asking Zayn [to stay away], it is telling him."
A spokesperson for Simon's Syco label told People.com: "This story was totally made up. It's completely untrue, and no such conversation has ever happened."
