Zayn Malik Not Secretly Married, Says Rep

ABC/Matt BrownOne Direction fans, you can all calm down: Zayn Malik did not secretly get married.

The hysteria started when Zayn posted a photo on Instagram of him wearing what appears to be a wedding band on his ring finger. The singer made his account public for the first time on Tuesday, and his very first image sent his followers into a panic that he had married his girlfriend, Perrie Edwards, without letting them know first.

A spokesman denied that the jewelry in question was a wedding band, and said it was in fact his engagement ring, according to The Daily Mail. Zayn confirmed his engagement to the Little Mix singer last August.

One Direction will tour North America beginning August 4 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.  5 Seconds of Summer will open on the trek.
