Following this past week’s frenzy over ex-One Direction member Zayn Malik’s changing hair colours (yes, plural), Directioners are now taking aim at Zayn’s fiancée Perrie Edwards of girl group Little Mix.
Yesterday, the girls posted a video onto Instagram of the four members going around in a circle saying their names. As the camera turns to Perrie, she says “Perrie Malik” instead of Edwards. That post has now raked in over 13,000 comments of fans (and haters) freaking out. And we mean F R E A K I N G O U T. Watch the clip and see some reactions below.

Don’t freak out, internet. This was all just a silly misunderstanding. A rep quickly cleared the air, telling E!: “The three girls in the group with boyfriends say their first name and their boyfriend’s last name and Jade says ‘I’m Jade’ with no last name because she doesn’t have a boyfriend. They were teasing her. Nothing more.”
So don’t worry, everyone, Zayn and Perrie didn’t secretly get married.
