Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik Split
Supermodel Gigi Hadid and former One Direction member Zayn Malik have called it quits after two years of dating.
News of the split first broke in the tabloids on Tuesday. Shortly afterwards, both Hadid and Malik took to twitter to confirm the news.
Malik said: “Gigi and I had an incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship and I have a huge amount of respect and adoration for Gigi as a woman and a friend…We wish this news would have come from us first.”
A little over ten minutes later, the 22-year-old supermodel tweeted that she wants “nothing but the best” for her ex-boyfriend.
The couple, who were rumoured to be engaged, first sparked romance speculation in November 2015 when they were spotted leaving an American Music Awards after-party together.
Shortly afterwards, Hadid appeared in Malik’s steamy music video for “Pillowtalk”, intensifying the rumours.
The couple eventually made their first red carpet appearance together at the 2016 Met Gala.
A source close to the pair revealed that the two had “grown apart” and that their “crazy work schedules” are partly to blame for the split.
