Perrie Edwards Breaks Silence On Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Split Rumours
Rumours have been rife over the last few weeks that power couple, Perrie Edwards and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were on the rocks. It was all down to the fact that the former-Arsenal midfielder accepted a deal with Liverpool Football Club.
Reportedly, the decision to move from London to Liverpool rather than accepting a deal closer to the capital city was quite a surprise to Perrie. As part of Little Mix, she's regularly in London and apparently hoped he'd be closer to home.
Now, Perrie's come out and said that although she'll be staying in London and Alex will be in Liverpool (220 miles away), they're going to make it work.
Speaking to the Mirror, she said: "I don't think it will be difficult. It's going to be different - but that's not a problem."
She continued: "We'll be fine. I'm just really happy for him and very proud."
When the news broke about Alex's potential transfer, Arsenal fans were not happy.
They covered Perrie's Instagram with snake emojis and nasty comments about the potential transfer.
"Chamberlain anyone but Chelsea you traitor broke our hearts you scum bag," commented one angry fan on Perrie's latest Insta.
Another added: "Your bf is a f*cking snake [sic]."
One user posted: "Ur dating a snake be careful they bite [sic]."
"Your bf is a bloody w*nker leaves after all we did for him and the patience we had," commented a final angry follower.
Little Mix fans stuck up for her, and tried to get rid of all the hate she was recieving by posting hundreds of love heart emojis and kind messages.
"I cant understand why people hate on Perrie because Alex left Arsenal, it was his choice and he's happy with it," wrote one user.
Another Little Mix fan wrote: "She's done nothin she's being a supportive girlfriend just because he's got a better deal dose not mean u take it out on Perrie [sic]."
"Y'all hating on her because of alex but its his choose to leave arsenal thanks. Haters gonna hate," commented a final fan of the singer.
Perrie recently revealed that she wanted to be with Alex for the rest of her life in a sweet Insta snap:
She isn't the only Little Mix member to receive a public backlash recently. The whole band was blasted by angry fans after they appeared to mock TOWIE star Georgia Kousoulou's 'everything £5' ad...
