Zayn Malik deserves happiness: Rebecca Ferguson

London, Oct 3: Singer Rebecca Ferguson has no bad blood with her ex-boyfriend Zayn Malik and wishes him well.

The 30-year-old "X Factor" runner-up dated the former One Direction star for four months in 2011 and while the relationship ended badly, the 'Bones' hitmaker looks back on their time together in a "positive" light, reported Female First.

Malik, 23, went on to be engaged to Little Mix's Perrie Edwards, but he broke up with her via text message following
four years of dating last summer.

Now he is dating fashion model Gigi Hadid, 21, and Ferguson is thrilled for him as she thinks she is both a "lovely" and "beautiful" person.

Asked if she is on good terms with the pop hunk, she said, "Yeah I think it was so many years ago now. But I've always wished him well. I might have had a moment the week after I got interviewed, I was probably ranting like any normal girl. But I look back and it was a fairly positive time in my life.

"I really wish him well. He's a good person and he deserves happiness. I am glad to see he has met a lovely girlfriend. She is beautiful. I am just a bit of a hippy, I like love and I like people to be happy," she added.
