Perrie Edwards deactivates Instagram after sending weird messages

The Little Mix singer wrote to fans privately to ask them to delete and untag pictures of her in skimpy outfit

Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards had her fans worried, after sending odd messages and deleting her Instagram account.

The 23-year-old is currently in America with the rest of the band, and was spotted taking some sunny time out on a Miami beach and by a hotel pool.

Perrie was snapped happily walking along the sand with her bandmate Jesy Nelson, who is dealing with a break-up from her TOWIE boyfriend Chris Clark.

The pair were both wearing cut-off denim shorts and skimpy bikini tops – black for Jesy, white Calvin Klein for Perrie – and were snapped laughing and joking in the water.

But when pictures of her later emerged by a hotel pool wearing the same outfit, Perrie appeared not to be happy – and sent private messages to fans asking them to delete the pictures and untag her.

Writing to her fans directly, Perrie said: “Please delete and untag those pictures. Much Love.” And then, as they agreed to do so, she sent kiss emojis in gratitude.

She then went on to delete her Instagram account completely.

Confused by her messages and by her deleting the account, fans began speculating what might be wrong. While some sent messages to her bandmates, asking what had happened and explaining they were “really worried”, others wondered if Perrie might have split from her Arsenal footballer boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

But everything in their relationship is still believed to be fine, and the pair are set to be reunited this weekend when she flies home at the end of Little Mix’s tour supporting Ariana Grande.

Perrie later reactivated her Instagram account.
