Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have split up after two years together
Supermodel Gigi Hadid and singer Zayn Malik frequently lit up social media as one of the sexist couples. On Instagram, they’ve each grown a massive following, sharing photos of their glamorous lives and gushing about how much they love each other. In the caption to a GIF of the pair cuddling, Gigi wrote "love this man more than I could ever put into words, & am inspired by his drive to be and do better everyday...I’m proud to be by your side."
And now she's proud to be far, far away. After two years of dating, Gigi and Zayn have decided to split up. I know. Love is dead. You thought maybe Zayn would declare with love for Gigi with a giant tattoo, and they'd get married, and have a dozen supermodel rock star kids. But it was not to be. Remember, they're young - 25 (Zayn) and 22 (Gigi) - so their breakup shouldn't be that surprising. And the good news is, now they're both single! If you run into either of them in real life, you totally have a chance.
A source told The Sun they decided to call it quits because of their busy schedules, but they still get along:
"They are no longer a couple but they do remain close and are supportive of each other. The reality is that they’ve grown apart, having been together for a long time. They have crazy work schedules that would put pressure on any relationship.
This is definitely the end for now, but this isn’t a bitter split and they both have respect for each other. It’s a mutual decision so no one has completely ruled out a reunion in the future, but for now that’s not where their heads are at."
It sounds like everything's chill between the photogenic pair, but Joe's most recent post on social media was kind of salty. He shared a photo of himself shirtless, with the caption: "When Life throws you lemons , catch em so they don’t hit you in the f--king face." So, that's cryptic. Also, at about the same time, he unfollowed Gigi Hadid on Instagram, as well as her mom, Yolanna Hadid. That would seem to indicate the split is a little bitter, anonymous source at The Sun.
Gigi and Zayn were last pictured together in January. I know, it's hard not to roll your eyes, when you hear a supermodel and a pop star complain about how 'crazy' their 'work schedules' are. But reportedly they have been spending a lot of time apart lately. While Gigi's been strutting down runways all over the world, Zayn's been tethered to his studio in Miami, recording new music. Long distance relationships are tough, even for the ridiculously, ridiculously good-looking.
Well, hopefully they don't feel too down. I'm sure they'd both do all right on Tinder.
