Earlier this month, The Sun Online exclusively revealed how friends feared the couple were going through a rocky patch after Alex decided to leave Arsenal football club for Liverpool.
LITTLE Mix shot down a critical fan on Twitter after she claimed Perrie Edwards was ‘overworking her vocals’.
Replying to a comment praising a note Perrie hit on their track Down & Dirty, the fan said: “Perrie should stop overworking her vocals + they should stop performing Power it always sounds like they’re struggling.”
But the Little Mix girls weren’t impressed, hitting back from their official account: “Why don’t you try sing it hun?”
The post prompted the fan to share a series of posts insisting she was a Little Mix fan.
One read: “I’m proud that the girl dragged me. But now my idols think i hate them :(((((.”
While another said: “People are coming at me for the little mix tweet as if it was a hate comment or even an unpopular opinion.It’s not i stan lm+it’s my opinion”
Last month Perrie was forced to pull out of Little Mix’s performances in Las Vegas.
The pop star was rushed to hospital after suffering from a “gastric problem” in America and was forced to miss the gig at the Daytime Village 2017 Capital One event.
A spokesman for the band reportedly told the Mail Online: “Perrie was taken ill overnight and had to go to hospital with a gastric problem.
“She saw a doctor and was sadly unable to perform.”
The other members of the band took to the stage as a trio with Jade Thirwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson holding fort until Perrie is well enough to rejoin them.
It comes after Perrie insisted her relationship with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will work, despite rumours his move to Liverpool has strained it.
The pair have been smitten ever since coupling up last November, but with Alex swapping London for Merseyside things appeared to be strained during a recent outing to Nando’s.
But Perrie is willing to make things work, telling the Mirror: “I don’t think it will be difficult. It’s going to be different – but that’s not a problem.
“We’ll be fine. I’m just really happy for him and very proud.”
