Rebecca Ferguson has been out promoting her new single and album so obviously she’s been asked constantly about her brief relationship with One Direction’s Zayn Malik.
Now Rebecca’s revealed why they broke up and it wasn’t the age difference or jealousy over Zayn’s bromance with other One D members… they simply ‘grew apart’.
Rebecca told MTV, „We are not really in touch me and Zayn, we just grew apart. I wish him well.„
We can’t really fathom ‘growing apart’ from Zayn. If we went out with him we’d NEVER leave his side, there’d simply be no opportunity for apart-ness. How could you be apart from this face?
Rebecca doesn’t regret her and Zayn’s relationship despite all the crazy people sending Twitter hate and death threats. She thinks it was a learning curve.
Rebecca explained to The Sun, „I was getting a lot of criticism and it’s not nice to be attacked. I was 24 and he was 18 so it’s not perfect but it’s not that bad. If I had been a man, nobody would have batted an eyelid.”
„I’m glad it started early in my career because it was a great big lesson for me.”
