Little Mix didn't think Zayn Malik "deserved" to be warned about their new song.
The girl group's Perrie Edwards was left devastated last year when the former One Direction star called off their engagement, and she has hit back in the band's forthcoming single 'Shout Out To My Ex' which is said to mock his sexual prowess.
When asked whether Zayn was warned about the track, Perrie said: "No."
Jesy Nelson said: "We don't think he deserves a warning! He'll just have to wait to see."
The 'Saulte' hitmakers' new song is said to include the lyrics: "Hope she gettin' better sex, Hope she ain't fakin' it like I did, babe.
"Guess I should say thank you, For the 'hate yous' and the tattoos, Oh baby I'm cool by the way, Ain't sure I loved you anyway."
The words are rumoured to be a reference to Zayn's new romance with model Gigi Hadid.
Perrie has since moved on with actor Luke Pasqualino, and she confirmed the pair have been on a few dates together and he's even heard their new song.
She added to The Sun newspaper: "We've been on a few fun dates, which is nice. It's very early days. It's early days but yeah, he's really lovely."
Speaking about playing him their track, the 23-year-old star said: "He thought it was good."
Perrie and Luke were spotted getting intimate at her bandmate Leigh Anne Pinnock's 25th birthday bash recently.
A source said at the time: "They snuck away to a corner and weren't making it obvious to everyone else at the party."
Another source previously said: "Luke is everything Perrie craved from Zayn, and she's finally ready to commit to a relationship for the first time since their split."
