Zayn Malik is now solo in more ways than one. Four months after splitting from One Direction to pursue a solo career, Malik and Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards have called off their engagement.

A rep for Malik confirmed the news to EW. According to People, Malik called it off two weeks ago. The couple, both 22, were engaged in August of 2013.

Malik made another huge life change last week when he announced he signed a solo contract with RCA. “I guess I never explained why I left,” he tweeted. “It was for this moment to be given the opportunity to show you who i really am! #realmusic #RCA !!”

Neither Malik nor Edwards have directly addressed the news. To read more about their split, head over to People
