GiGi Hadid and Zayn Malik have decided to go their separate ways!
The now former couple made the announcement in statements posted to their individual Twitter accounts.
“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 friend,” Malik wrote in his statement. “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”
“Breakup statements often seem impersonal because there is really no way to put into words what two people experience 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 be. xG,” the model added in her statement.

The UK’s The Sun was the first to report the split. “They are no longer a couple but they do remain close and are supportive of each other,” a source revealed to the mag. “The reality is that they’ve grown apart, having been together for a long time.”
