Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid split after 2 years together
Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid’s love story has come to an end. The couple, who dated for over two years, confirmed they were going their separate ways with emotional statements on social media yesterday (Mar. 13).
Former One Direction member wrote “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.”
The singer added “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 the news could have come from us first. We love you all. xZ”
As regards the American model, she wrote “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,” she added, “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. xG”
Malik started dating Hadid shortly after his split with Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards. Since announcing the split, the singer has also unfollowed Gigi and her mum Yolanda on Instagram.
