After more than two years of dating, Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid have decided to call it quits and go their separate ways. In Hollywood, celebrity breakups happen often, but this one should make the Directioners very happy, right?
While the rumors have been made before about this couple breaking up, it was confirmed by both of them on Twitter today. Zayn shared a note, which 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. She has such an incredible soul. I’m grateful to all of our fans for respecting this difficult decision and our privacy at this time, we wish this news could have come from us first. We love you all. xZ.”
It wasn't long after that Gigi went to her social media and released a statement of her own: "Breakup statements often seem impersonal because there is really no way to put into words what two people experience together over a few year..not only in the relationship, but in life in general. I’m forever grateful for the love, time, and life lessons that Z and I shared. I want nothing but the best for him and will continue to support him as a friend that I have immense respect and love for. As for the future, whatever’s meant to be will alway be.”
The news was first reported by The Sun, which stated that "Zayn and Gigi] 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. “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.”
While they both posted their statements on social media, it still left fans wondering if things were good or not between the two of them. I mean, breakups can happen without it getting ugly. However, this might not go that way for Zayn and Gigi, as Zayn has unfollowed Gigi and her mother, Yolanda Hadid, on social media!
