Zayn Malik is set to sell the home he bought for his ex-fiancée Perrie Edwards’ mother. The 23-year-old BeFoUr singer bought the house for the Little Mix singer’s mother, Debbie, during their two-year engagement, but after their split in the summer he is preparing to sell the property. However, The Sun reports that the singer is threatening legal action if Perrie’s mother doesn’t comply with his plans and leave, as he tries to eradicate ‘every last trace’ of his ex from his life.
Speaking to MailOnline a spokesperson for the former One Direction star commented: “She (Debbie) is still living in the house.
“Zayn has very generously allowed her to live there for the past couple of years, but she’s buying a house with her boyfriend so will be moving out once complete.”
However, a friend of the star explained the situation regarding the star wanting Debbie out of the house — which is said to be solely in his name — to the paper, saying he has ‘ordered’ her to leave.
“Zayn wants Debbie out,” the inside elaborated.
“He has told her that he wants the house back and ordered her to leave.”
And the sale of the property is said to be prompted by the Mind of Mine star’s desire to ‘rid’ himself of anything that reminds him of his time with Perrie.
Though Zayn seems set on making the sale a cathartic experience, and Debbie is planning on leaving the house — the insider alleged that the singer is not messing around when it comes to completing the sale.
“He has issued Debbie with an ultimatum — get out or he will take her to court,” the source told the paper.
She is still living in the house right now, but because it is registered in his name she has no hope of beating him in a legal battle. She’s going to have to move out.
A representative for Perrie declined to comment when approached by MailOnline for comment.
The three bedroom bungalow, located in Dorset, was purchased by Zayn at the height of his romance with Perrie in 2014 for a reported £250 000.
But the following year Zayn split with his fiancée, and has since moved on — starting a relationship with supermodel, Gigi Hadid. — dailymailuk.
