On the 13th of March, the former One Directioner confirmed his breakup with the supermodel, Gigi Hadid. Malik took to his Twitter account to confirm the news; he described their relationship as “meaningful, loving, and fun,” and one characterized by a lot of “respect and adoration.”
Zayn claimed he and Gigi wished the news would’ve come from them first, but it is what it is. Gigi also confirmed on Twitter that they had broken up.
She said their experiences were terrific and hard to put into words, but the life lessons learned and good times shared together has made everything worthwhile.

As it was previously reported, they first began dating back in November of 2015 and the last time she posted a message to Zayn was for his birthday in January.
Sources close to the couple explained, “Gigi and Zayn were a great couple, but something like that can only last for so long. They had a lot of fun, but their schedules are so busy that it almost makes it impossible to have a meaningful and close relationship.”
However, on the other side of the story, an insider shared, “they’re just not compatible. Their interests aren’t as similar as you would think.”
For the longest time, Zayn and Gigi was the entertainment world’s favorite couple. Even Yolanda Hadid spoke on their relationship and said they were “beautiful together.”
In addition to saying how great they were as an item, reporters asked her if they would get married and she said she didn’t know; “it is up to them.” Hadid added it’s her job as a mother to support them on their journey.
