Just days after Zayn Malik confirmed on social media that he and model Gigi Hadid had called time on their two-year romance, the 'Pillowtalk' hitmaker bought property and got a new tattoo.

Malik took to social media on Friday to share a snap of his new ink, a rose on the back of his head.

The shot wasn't captioned but it featured Malik a black and white shirt, looking away from the camera with the rose tattoo clearly on display.

Then, latest reports claim that the 25-year-old singer purchased a $10.69 million (about R121 million) apartment in New York. 

According to The Sun newspaper, the Malik musician the lavish bachelor pad is located in the Manhattan suburb of Soho.

The apartment boasts four bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as brick ceilings, exposed beams and steel-clad columns.

There's also a dining table big enough to host eight people, as well as an expansive living room lined with sofas, with mirrored walls to make the room look even more spacious.

Zayn is believed to have first expressed interest in the property last month, with a deal being finalised on March 13.
