Former 'X Factor' contestants Rebecca Ferguson and Zayn Malik have split up
Rebecca Ferguson and Zayn Malik have split up.
The former 'X Factor' contestants - who met on the set of the ITV 1 show- reportedly started dating after growing close on the 'X Factor' tour earlier this year but Rebecca, 24, has now revealed she is single.
In a message which has since been deleted, Rebecca announced on twitter: "im happy to say ive decided to be single my children my family and my career are now my world!! (sic)
Just last month Rebecca - who has two children with her ex-boyfriend Karl Dures - gushed about her love for the 18-year-old One Direction singer claiming they were in "love" and asking people to forget about their age difference.
She said: ""Sometimes when the right person comes along, you just drop your guard. He's a very sweet person with a very kind heart.
"I didn't even know Zayn liked me but apparently he had done for a very long time, but nobody told me. I was the last person to find out."
"We're really in love and it's hard to see how negative things have become. I want people to know that I'm happy, he's happy and we're in a loving, caring relationship. It's sad that people are so against it."
