The former One Direction member Zayn Malik dumped 22-year-old Little Mix star Perrie Edwards via text message.

Malik ended his relation nearly two years after he got engaged in August 2013.

And reports suggest that the singer is believed to have moved, looking for new love.


MailOnline reports that the singer is smitten with Burberry model Neelam Gill after meeting in London earlier this year.

And 20-year-old Neelam - who is Burberry's first ever Indian model - is planning to jet to Los Angeles in the coming days to spend some quality time with Zayn, who is renting a home there while he works on his first solo album.

Neelam is signed to Models One in London and Wilhelmina in New York.

Gill, who was also known as Neelam Johal before taking her stepfather's name, took to Twitter to post about LA on Saturday, writing: 'to live and die in LA, it's the place to be...'

Burberry's most recent discovery Neelam is a 19-year-old London native with huge brown eyes who gained internet fame by landing last year's Burberry Prorsum campaign as her first job ever—and posing with Harry Styles backstage at their fashion show.


But Ms. Gill isn't just a rare mix of gorgeous and adorable. She's also historic, as the first female model of Indian descent to book a pose in the brand's ads.

She was supposed to go to University this year, but instead, she is modeling full time. She was not very hopeful about her modeling career so she took a [year off] school just to see how it would go.


Zayn and Gill first met at a studio in London in March but nothing happened between them as he was still engaged to Perrie.

At the time Zayn, having just left One Direction, was working with producer Naughty Boy and Neelam was visiting her friends, hip hop duo Krept and Konan, who were also recording in the building.

Zayn has also worked with Krept and Konan since leaving the boyband.
