He’s got a thing for older women! Former One Direction singer Zayn Malik is currently back together with his on-again, off-again girlfriend Gigi Hadid, 23, but the pop star kept busy during their brief, three-month split earlier this year. Enrica Petrongari, a 41-year-old Italian masseuse from NYC, is now claiming that she has secret sex sessions with the 25-year-old while he was broken up with Gigi.

“Zayn could get any girl he wants and he was with Gigi, who is obviously incredibly beautiful,” Enrica told The Sun on Sunday. “So I was pretty surprised when he focused his attention on me — a 41-year-old woman with curves. He told me he liked girls with big a–es. He made me feel special. But after a while I realized that he was just using me.”

Enrica said she was first introduced to Zayn when his personal assistant booked the holistic therapist for a private session with Zayn at his swanky, $10.7 million penthouse in SoHo. Enrica, who is separated from her husband, returned to his place for a second massage session and that’s when Zayn reached out and held her hand.

After that, the two exchanged numbers and started to exchange sexy text messages. Zayn told Enrica that he liked an “ass like yours,” and he also begged Enrica to send photos and called her his “Italian goddess.”

“He told me he didn’t care about the massages anymore — he just wanted me here. We had a lot of fun,” Enrica said. “But afterwards he would appear rude and disinterested. We never really just hung out together.”

But their secret sex sessions came to an end after Enrica shared a mirror seflie of herself in his apartment. “I was upset when he just stopped all contact,” Enrica said. “There is something wrong with him for sure — he was just using me.”
