Zayn Malik is reportedly enjoying a ‘budding romance’ with an American public relations professional named Carlyn Bryan.
The 22-year-old former One Direction singer abruptly split from Little Mix star Perrie Edwards in August (15), after they had been engaged for two years and dating for three.
But it seems Zayn has moved on very quickly, as it is rumoured he is now romantically engaged with another blonde named Carlyn.
‘It’s early days but a budding romance between the pair is on the cards,’ a source told British newspaper The Sun.
Rumours of a fresh love affair heated up after Zayn posted an image on Instagram over the weekend (26-27Sep15) of himself with another woman who very much resembled his ex Perrie.
Although he did not caption the photograph, which featured Zayn with his arm wrapped around the blonde who is puckering her lips out to the camera, many assume the woman in the image is Carlyn.
When Carlyn was asked by The Sun whether she is dating Zayn, the stunner replied with a simple ‘no comment’ answer.
And it appears she is doing everything in her power to keep their alleged romance out of the spotlight.
‘Despite Zayn posting a picture, Carlyn is trying to keep a very low profile and the relationship will be kept under wraps as long as possible,’ the source detailed. ‘They’ve socialised in the same places over the past year but their bond has only progressed recently.’
Shortly after Zayn shared an image of himself with the pretty mystery blonde, Carlyn made all of her social media accounts private.
Zayn’s romance with former flame Perrie was quite serious and they even purchased a multimillion dollar property together just outside London before they split, with the home having been put back on the market since their breakup.
But even though Perrie publicly cried after their relationship ended, the songstress recently revealed she is now coping well in wake of the heartbreak with the help of loved ones and her bandmates.
‘I’m having an absolute blast,’ she gushed to UK newspaper The Mirror, noting going out with girlfriends is the best. ‘We have a bit of banter with guys in nightclubs… I love it.’
