To back up a bit, following Zayn's recent breakup with Perrie Edwards (ugh, tragic), fans noticed that Zayn favorited one of Kylie's pics on Twitter. Given the timeline of events, Zayn favorited it just a week after he reportedly called off his engagement with Perrie via text message.
The whole thing set off a whirlwind of reports that he was now flirting with Kylie, which we rolled our eyes at because, honestly, favoriting a tweet doesn't mean much.
Fast forward to the weekend and Zayn was spotted at Kylie's party...but he also unfavorited Kylie's pic on Twitter?
And Zayn tweeted this:
Zayn leaving Kylie's after party last night! #4 pic.twitter.com/sc9eAzRhXK— Radio1D (@Radio1Direction) August 10, 2015
So, what's it all mean? Given that Kylie's boyfriend Tyga was there and gifted her a Ferrari, we'd say Zayn was there as a friend.
Hmmm 😎— zayn (@zaynmalik) August 10, 2015
UPDATE: According to HollywoodLife.com, Zayn was flirting with Kendall Jenner at the party. A source told the site: "Zayn was a major flirt with Kendall at Kylie's party. He was with her most of the night, laughing a lot, and seemed to feel the most comfortable when he was with her. A ton of girls were trying to get Zayn's attention, but he just seemed interested in Kendall. She was smiling and didn't seem to mind Zayn giving her so much attention!"
Fans weighed in with various opinions, of course.
First, so many questions...
Then the expected speculation...
