After two years together, Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have called it quits!
Zayn confirmed the split on Twitter, writing, “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 would have come from us first. We love you all."
Gigi added, "Breakup statements often seem impersonal because there is really no way to put into words what two people experience together over a few years.. 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 always be.”
Earlier today, the “Pillow Talk” singer hinted at the breakup when he he posted an Instagram pic, writing, “When life throws you lemons, catch em so they don't hit you in the f**king face."
His confirmation came after a source told The Sun, “Sadly, Zayn and Gigi have separated. 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,” the insider continued. “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.”
In 2016, the pair took a break from their relationship, but rekindled it months later.
