Scarlett Moffatt has found herself under attack, as Zayn Malik’s sister has branded her a NOBODY.
The Gogglebox star turned Queen of the I’m A Celebrity jungle had written about One Direction singer Zayn in her autobiography and slammed his treatment of former fiancée Perry Edwards.
Rushing to the defence of her fellow Geordie, Scarlett had called Zayn a naughty word for the way he treated Perrie, who’d claimed he had broken off their engagement by text.
Scarlett wrote: “I hope people realise what a (naughty word!) he is, and that his music bombs. Seriously, who does he think he is?” And went on to further criticise Zayn during her appearance on Celebrity Juice, saying he acted, um, badly.
And while Pillowtalk singer Zayn might have kept quiet over the criticism, his sister Doniya came out fighting in his defence.
She took to Twitter to have her say, branding Scarlett a “nobody” and accusing her of using the singer’s profile to try and boost her own fame.
Tweeting alongside a link to Scarlett’s words about Zayn, Doniya wrote: “When you need publicity because you’re a nobody you bring things up that have nothing to do with you two years later…
“Sorry who are you thou? Lol [sic].”
Scarlett, who is presenting on Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and has also landed a new job hosting the reboot of Street Mate, had her say on the pop stars’ relationship after reading about the break-up in Little Mix’s autobiography.
Singer Perrie had revealed: “It was horrible, the worst time in my life.
“A four-year relationship, two-year engagement ended by a simple text message. Just like that.
“After I split with my partner, out of the blue, I had nowhere to go, which was incredibly stressful. For a while I had no idea what to do.”
Perrie has now moved onto a new romance with Arsenal and England footballer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and recently posted a picture of the loved-up pair together on a romantic trip to Paris.
Meanwhile Zayn Malik has been dating model Gigi Hadid for 18 months. And in an interview with Fader magazine, he denied Perrie’s version of how their relationship ended, saying: “I have more respect for Perrie than to end anything over text message.
“I love her a lot, and I always will, and I would never end our relationship over four years like that. She knows that, I know that, and the public should know that as well.”
