Gigi Hadid And Zayn Malik Have Officially Split

Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid had been together since November 2015

Celebrity couple Zayn Malik and supermodel Gigi Hadid on Tuesday announced they had split up after two years of dating, with both posting statements of mutual love and respect.

Following the announcement of their decision to split, the two posted heartfelt messages to their fans. The post served as a joint statement of sorts, and - despite the sad nature of the news - was nothing but respectful and loving. "She has such an incredible soul", the former One Direction singer tweeted in a text-post.

"I'm grateful to all of our fans for respecting this hard decision and our privacy at this time", he continued.

We were just recovering from the Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux breakup news, when we woke up to this bombshell.

And here we were, thinking love was still alive.

He said: "When Life throws you lemons, catch em so they don't hit you in the f*****g face".

Gigi followed up with her own statement 12 minutes later. "I'm forever grateful for the love, time, and life lessons that Z and I shared", Hadid said. "I want nothing but the best for him and will continue to support him as a friend as that I have huge respect and love for".

Eagle-eyed social media fans also noticed Malik had unfollowed the Victoria's Secret model and her mother on Instagram.

Then in May 2016, the two officially went public with their relationship when they appeared on the red carpet together at the 2016 Met Gala.

Gigi did say "as for the future, whatever's meant to be will be", so who knows, maybe there is some hope for them to get back together.
