The Little Mix singer appeared upbeat at a Hollister store in Glendale, California, where she and the other members of her British girl group mingled with fans.

"Just Want To Thank All My Family, Friends And Fans For Helping Me Get Through This Hard Time! Because Of You All I'm Still Smiling," she Tweeted, her message ending with a big red heart.

Perrie then followed up 10 minutes later with another message: "I'm Trying To Stay Strong, But Its Natural To Feel HeartBroken So If I Come Across Quiet When Meeting Fans, Im Sorry! I Do Love You All Lots."

Perrie and Little Mix appeared at the California shopping mall to promote their latest single, "Black Magic."

Mailk contacted Edwards two weeks ago to tell her the relationship was over, which left his fiancée "devastated," a source told PEOPLE.

The couple got engaged two years ago in August.

It has been a year of big change for Malik, the 22-year-old former One Direction member. He quit the chart-topping band in March.
