So it seems like Rebecca Ferguson paid for everything while she was in a relationship with Zayn Malik. The 31-year-old claimed that while she dated the One Direction star in 2011 for four months, he had very little cash since he was a teenager. With her being seven years older than him, she would mostly treat Zayn when they went out.
During Thursday’s episode of UK TV show “Loose Women,” the brunette appeared as a guest panelist and was a part of a discussion whether you should quiz a guy about his earnings on a first date or not.
While speaking specifically about Zayn, she revealed: “We were young so I would pay the bills quite a lot, yeah. I paid out a lot and people were quite surprised by that.”
After their relationship ended, the “Bones” singer always looked back on their time together in a positive way. Then, Zayn got engaged to Perrie Edwards who he dumped via text message after four years of dating in 2016.
The ‘PillowTalk’ hitmaker is now in a committed relationship with supermodel Gigi Hadid, 22, and Rebecca previously said she is thrilled for him as she thinks the fashion model is both a “lovely” and “beautiful” person.
When asked if she is on good terms with the pop hunk, she told BANG Showbiz:“Yeah I think it was so many years ago now. But I’ve always wished him well. I might have had a moment the week after I got interviewed, I was probably ranting like any normal girl. But I look back and it was a fairly positive time in my life. I really wish him well. He’s a good person and he deserves happiness. I am glad to see he has met a lovely girlfriend. She is beautiful. I am just a bit of a hippy, I like love and I like people to be happy.”
