There’s controversy brewing in the land of Perrie Edwards. The below photo that Perrie shared via the Little Mix Twitter account shows what happened when Edwards said she accidentally set herself afire and burned her hand.
Perrie warned her followers about staying away from fire.
“So today I had an accident… and by accident I mean I accidentally set myself on fire. [Thumbs-up emoji.] The pilot light on my boiler blew up and it set my arm/hand on fire. Not a pleasant experience. I’m in pain, full of blisters, there’s not one hair left on my hand or arm, and it burned the sleeve of my favorite jumper. [Worried face emoji F****** nightmare. A little advice from me…STAY AWAY FROM FIRE! [Fire emoji] #StaySafeKids”
The Twitter note, shared on February 25, at 4:02 p.m. ET, came with two photos of Perrie’s hand, which show a ring on the thumb of her right hand, and discernible red marks on her hand. It appears Edwards is wearing pink polish, but only on three of her fingers on the right hand, while the index and thumb finger don’t have any nail polish on them. The photo received nearly 15,000 likes on Twitter and nearly 10,000 retweets.

Other photos of Perrie, as reported by TMZ, show Edwards leaving the Brit Awards on Wednesday evening in the same car with Louis Tomlinson, the One Direction member who is being accused of making time with his ex-bandmate Zayn Malik‘s ex fiancee. Reactions to Louis and Perrie leaving together exploded online, with some defending Edwards — whose relationship with Zayn ended in August 2015 — and calling Perrie and Louis just friends.
Okay okay okay just because they’re leaving together doesn’t mean they’re dating okay. If I leave school with my best friend does that mean she’s my girlfriend? No. Ever heard of that term “friends”?
Some fans of Perrie are calling foul on the way the photos of Edwards with Tomlinson were presented, and they are offering up the original, unedited photos that show Perrie wasn’t alone with Louis in the car.

Edwards is still on the mind and heart of Zayn, claims Yahoo Celebrity UK, saying that Malik has a video that features Perrie’s lookalike.

Zayn’s song “It’s You” is apparently all about Perrie, reports Amplify.
Other folks are taking issue with the fact that some publications are only viewing Perrie as the ex-fiancee of Malik, and they are making their thoughts known on social media.
Perrie Edwards* is a well established woman with her OWN name. How dare you degrade her to the ‘property’ of her ex…
it’s pretty sad how Perrie Edwards aka one of the best vocalists of this generation will always be “Zayn Malik’s ex fiancé” to some people
Other folks are defending Perrie, claiming that Zayn broke up with Perrie, not the other way around.
“Zayn also threw shade at Louis not to mention he left the band so I’d say there is no bro code when it comes to zayn and Louis and besides the rest of 1D were friends with Perrie and Little Mix.”
Despite the controversy, is celebrating their 2016 BRIT Awards win in London, where they won their first BRIT Award nominations for Best Video and Best Single for “Black Magic.”
