Pity poor Harry Styles. First he lost his status as ‘most talked about British Harry’ after his namesake royal gave that “yeah, I kill people sometimes” interview. And now he’s not even leading for the title of ‘most talked about pop shagger’ or even ‘most talked about One Direction love rat’ (and this despite the “Styles to attend same awards ceremony as recent ex Taylor Swift” stories doing the rounds ahead of this weekend’s NRJ Awards in Cannes). No, today both those titles belong to a certain Zayn Malik, supposedly hooked up with Little Mixer Perrie Edwards, but also the subject of the kiss and tell that was splashed across the front of yesterday’s Sun.
According to the tab, Malik recently had a one night stand with “Aussie beauty” Courtney Webb after he told the kiss-and-teller in the making, who found herself at a party at the star’s London home, that he was single.
He then bedded Webb underneath a large picture of Edwards, one quarter of fellow ‘X-Factor’ alumnus Little Mix, hung on the wall above his bed. In The Sun’s article Webb provides a ‘Cribs’ style overview of the pop star’s house and a couple of snaps of the 1D-er sleeping in his bed (presumably to verify the story) before declaring: “He’s an absolute shit. How dare he – not only to me but to Perrie?”
Recalling her early-hours meeting with the popster, she continues: “He was a really nice guy. We were talking about music and playing songs on his iPad. He even gave me a maroon jumper when I was cold. He was drinking vodka and we were having a laugh. I asked him if he had a girlfriend, and he said he didn’t. He said he wanted to enjoy being 20″.
Later, she adds, “Zayn cornered me, looked me in the eyes and said, ‘You’re so hot, you’re so fit, you’re really beautiful. Wow!’ I was taken aback. He kept giving me these looks across the room, a look I translated as ‘come to bed eyes’. I knew where this was going. He just said, ‘Let’s chill in my room’. We sat on his bed and before I could even say anything he started snogging my face off, kissing me passionately. It just snowballed from there. We fooled around then had sex. It was amazing”.
Though Webb admits that she slowly learned about Malik’s relationship with Edwards while still at his home (mainly by spotting some of his girlfriend’s belongings), but says that when she questioned him about the Little Mixer, the 1D star said “don’t worry about her, she’s on tour”. And so the night continued to its climax.
With The Sun story hitting the web this weekend, Malik returned from the NRJ Awards and headed straight to Nottingham, where Little Mix were due to play a show last night, seemingly in a bid to save his relationship with his fellow popstar. The couple left Edwards’ hotel “looking tense”, reports the tabloid. Meanwhile, Styles is presumably plotting his bid to regain some of that lost kudos. Maybe re-hook up with Taylor Swift and then immediately cheat on her with a Sun-reading waitress. Before heading to Afghanistan to take out the enemy with some well practiced pop moves.
