The rumors are true: singer Zayn Malik and model Gigi Hadid have indeed parted ways.
The two celebrities confirmed the breakup in separate Twitter posts on Wednesday (Manila time).
“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 as 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,” Malik said.
Hadid, for her part, said: “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.”
Malik and Hadid first got together in November 2015 after meeting at an after-party of a Victoria’s Secret fashion show.
