Famed singer Zayn Malik was reported to have cheated on his girlfriend Gigi Hadid following the break the duo had taken from their relationship.

According to a report by The Sun, the former One Direction member had gotten cozy with a 41-year-old masseuse called Italian Enrica.

The former One Direction star, 25, also begged Enrica Petrongari, 41, for sexy selfies after she visited his New York pad.

Holistic therapist Enrica first went to the sixth-floor apartment in New York’s Soho neighbourhood after being booked by Zayn’s PA Taryn Zimmerman.

At the time, she had no idea who the client was, other than a “high-level celebrity”. But she said: “Zayn was very tired and was in the bedroom sleeping. I recognised him straight away as he is so famous. It was pretty surreal.

“His house is very modern. There were eight multi-coloured Play­Station controllers lined up on the table and artwork for his music on the walls. Zayn’s assistant called me back after two or three hours.

“I went to his bedroom and we had a massage session. He said he was very tired and stressed out. He told me to come back the next day.”

Enrica, who moved to the US from Italy five years ago and is separated from her husband, said that during a later massage session, Zayn started holding her hand. She added: “He told me I needed to feel free and not nervous around him. I found him very attractive and he has a great body.

“His tattoos are very sexy. I was shocked that he would be interested in me, but flattered.” The pair exchanged numbers and began to send each other explicit messages.

Zayn told her they “have a lot of fun” and sent demands for her to “come over now, please”. He also declared he was single and said he liked an “ass like yours”.

Begging for pictures, in another text he said: “I want you to come lay with me.” He also called her his “Italian goddess”.

Enrica said: “He told me he didn’t care about the massages anymore — he just wanted me here. We had a lot of fun.

The report citing the woman stated: “Zayn could get any girl he wants and he was with Gigi, who is obviously incredibly beautiful. So I was pretty surprised when he focused his attention on me – a 41-year-old woman with curves.”

Enrica had gone on to state: “He made me feel special. But, after a while I realised that he was just using me.”

“Afterwards he would appear rude and disinterested. We never really just hung out together.”

The occurrence recounted by Enrica had reportedly taken place two weeks after the couple had publicly announced to part ways. However, soon after the couple were spotted again hand in hand together confirming that things are back on track.
