Zayn Malik takes a shot at Little Mix?

ZAYN Malik took an apparent shot at ex-fiancee Perrie Edwards on Twitter.

The former One Direction heartthrob -- who broke up with Perrie via text message last month -- seemingly made a veiled jibe at the blonde beauty's band Little Mix, sending fans into a frenzy in the process.

Zayn retweeted a post asking social media users to retweet if they liked Fifth Harmony's song 'Worth It' or favourite the message if they preferred Little Mix's song 'Black Magic'.

The apparent sleight towards Little Mix caused a stir among the newly single star's fans.

One person was amused by Zayn's behaviour, writing: "I'm laughing."

Another wrote: "This is the best thing that's happened all day."

Zayn fan Aria added: "IM LAUGHING MY A** OFF ZAYN YOU HAVE 0% CHILL MY SON (sic)"

It was recently reported that Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner is eager to have Zayn date her daughter Kendall.

A source revealed: "Kendall is actually quite shy and was mortified at her mum being so obvious but eventually she relaxed and was talking to Zayn just the two of them. [Her sister] Khloe [Kardashian] and some friends joined them and clearly Zayn was feeling more confident so he put his arm around her.

"She looked very surprised at first but she relaxed and put both her arms around his waist."
