The Zigi fans had to hear a terrible news on Tuesday as the celebrity couple announced that they have broken up. Singer Zayn Malik and supermodel Gigi Hadid dated for almost two years but the relationship hit a dead-end and they decided to part their ways.
Malik is a former member of famed British boy band One Direction while Hadid is a supermodel who walks for famous brands like Victoria’s Secret, Fendi and Tommy Hilfiger. The couple did not give a reason for the split but both released a statement in which they announced the split on their social media 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 a friend,” wrote Malik. “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.”
Hadid, 22, also released a statement of her own on Twitter, in which she tried to make the statement more personal.
“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,” wrote Hadid. “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. xG.”
Fans sent in their reactions from all across the world, mostly sharing their grief over the split.
