The Little Mix star was on the receiving end of Directioners' online anger in March after her fiancé decided to quit the chart-topping band, with fans saying she forced the 22-year-old hunk to quit for the sake of their relationship.
Her mum Debs is adamant the blonde beauty didn't influence his choice.
She said: ''It was his decision and nothing to do with Perrie.''
Fans recently branded Perrie Yoko Ono - John Lennon's wife who was blamed for breaking up The Beatles by angry Fab Four fans in 1970 - after Liam claimed Zayn walked away to spend more time with his ''missus''.
He said: ''He wanted to spend time with his family and his missus. That's cool with us.''
However, the couple - who started dating in December 2011 when Perrie was still on 'The X Factor' - have ''always been happy'', with the 21-year-old star's mum admitting she feels like Zayn is like a son to her because they are so close.
Debs explained: ''They've always been happy. Zayn's one of the nicest boys I've ever met and I couldn't imagine Perrie with anyone else. I feel like he's already my son, they've been together since she was on 'The X Factor' so he's part of the family.''
The dedicated parent added she frequently sees the couple, especially to make them delicious meals when they're feeling down.
She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''They've got plenty of time (to get married). They're still young. I visit quite a lot to cook them Sunday roasts. She could be like, 'Mam, I'm upset, take the day off and spend it with me,' and I would.''
