Perrie Edwards and Joey Essex Dating?

Reps for both Perrie Edwards and Joey Essex have come clean about the rumours surrounding the pair.

Since friends introduced Perrie and Joey at the Pride of Britain Awards on September 28, they swapped numbers and have been seen together quite a few times.

With rumours circulating that The Little Mix singer has bounced back quickly from her devastating break-up with ex One Directioner Zayn Malik, Joey's rep put silence to the speculation telling E! News they are simply just friends. 

"Joey exchanged numbers with Perrie Edwards at The Pride Of Britain Awards and met up a couple of times," the rep shared. "Joey is single."

Perrie's team also confirmed the rumours are false telling The Daily Mail that she's "not dating Joey." A source told The Mirror that "Perry has just come out of a serious relationship and is enjoying having fun right now." 

Zayn, 22, is reportedly keen to start a new life having slashed the asking price of the love nest he shared with Perrie, 22.

Zayn is now asking for 300,000 pounds less than the original asking price.

"Zayn is desperate to sell the property and start his new life in Los Angeles," a source shared with The Mirror.

The luxury house sits on a 25-acre plot, and features a pool, jacuzzi, paddock and kennels for pet dogs, as well as an orangery.
