The pop duo are said to have trashed a hotel room while filming the visuals for their new duet I Don't Wanna Live Forever, lifted from the forthcoming Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack.

 

According to reports, the pair completely destroyed a £2,500 a night hotel room in a scene which will be part of the raunchy clip.

A source told The Sun : "Zayn trashed the hotel room to bits, ripping apart pillows and smashing a lamp up against the wall.”

"Taylor had to light the curtains on fire for her part. The smoke alarms were turned off on the nearby floors so that the building didn't have to be evacuated.”

"All the scenes were carefully planned. It's going to be a very sexy video. Zayn was dressed dapper and Taylor was wearing garters and heels."

While Malik has been spotted filming in the capital, there has yet to be a public sighting of Swift.

I Don't Wanna Live Forever debuted in December, reaching number six on the Billboard Hot 100 and 16 on the UK chart. Fans were surprised by the collaboration but Malik later revealed that Swift was keen to join him in the studio after being encouraged by his girlfriend Gigi Hadid, who also happens to be a close friend of the pop songstress. He explained how the pair got talking about the track after Taylor heard it through a mutual friend.

“The interesting thing was, she is friends with Gi, so she already reached out after hearing it because [producer] Jack [Antonoff] had just played her the song anyway and she went in the studio the next day to record it,” he said.

“She mentioned to me that she liked the song and I already kind of knew in the back of my head that she liked it. So I asked her if she wanted to be on it and she was cool with it.”

The track, a duet with Taylor, is from the soundtrack to the upcoming sequel Fifty Shades Darker.

The new film is the second to emerge from the erotic franchise, which has been adapted from E.L. James’ best-selling novels. The leads from 2015’s Fifty Shades Of Grey, Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, will reprise their roles as Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey respectively.
