Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards 'buy luxurious mansion'
Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards have reportedly spent £3 million on a new home together.
The celebrity duo, who are engaged to be married, have decided to put down their roots just outside London by acquiring a six-bedroom, five-bathroom house that was previously lived in by a well-known Premier League soccer star.
A source said: "This is a big statement by Perrie and Zayn.
"They've had to shoot down rumours of a split after his exit from the band and this is both of them showing everyone just how serious they are.
"They're engaged and need somewhere they can both call home - and this house is it."
The luxurious property is split into two wings and also features a three-bedroom guest cottage.
The source told The Sun newspaper: "It's got everything they need and gives them a safe haven to base themselves when they're both in London and Perrie isn't away on tour.
"Zayn has a bit more time on his hands than he used to, so this is a good place to be for him to hang out with mates or just spend some time alone.
"Plus it is just half an hour or so from London so Zayn won't be going into exile just yet."
