Zayn Malik says Perrie Edwards relationship is built on trust

One Direction star Zayn Malik has claimed trust is the reason why his relationship with Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards has lasted.

The two former X Factor contestants confirmed their relationship earlier this year and the pair have seemingly been going strong since.

This is despite Malik jet-setting around the world on tour and Edwards gearing up for the release of Little Mix's debut album.

Speaking to Now magazine, the 'One Thing' star said that having faith in each other has seen the pair last. He said:

"We had an understanding from the start. I told her, 'This is my job, this is what's going to happen, stories will come out. Do you still want to be with me?'. That was established from the start and after that it was about me and her. Perrie has a lot of trust in me and I have a lot of trust in her. That's why it works."

Malik added: "Our jobs are full-on every single hour of the day. She gets that because she has to do exactly the same thing."
