Earlier today, photos of One Direction's Zayn Malik made their way online and made #Zerrie fans freak out. The photos showed Zayn with a mystery blonde girl at a club in Phuket, Thailand. The dudes are currently in the country as part of their On the Road Again Tour. Naturally, rumors that he's cheating on his fiance, Little Mix's Perrie Edwards, started spreading too... because you know, you can't just go out and talk with your girl-space-friend (or a super lucky fan?) when you're already engaged. Besides, how many times have we read about rumors that Zayn is cheating on Perrie? And time and again, these two have proven that #Zerrie is ~*REAL*~. Please note that we are not fans of cheating in any way or for whatever reason.
Case in point, before these images floated online, the Little Mix member who's currently in Dubai to promote their album said in an interview a few days ago that even though the distance is a little tough for them, it seems like they're also not going to trade it for anything in the world.

Can we hear an "aww"? Dedicated fans looked for the identity of the girl pictured with Zayn and they found out her name was Lauren Rich. She shared this photo with the 1D cutie on her Instagram.
Her caption was nothing romantic, too. "Partying with Zayn from One Direction last night. #thailand #1D #best #night #patong #phuket xx" Maybe she's just a fan of the guy and was lucky enough to get to hang with him and Louis Tomlinson who was also there in the club.
