Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have ended their relationship after two years of dating.
The former couple both took to social media to break the news.
“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. She has such an incredible soul,” Malik tweeted in a note on Tuesday. “I’m grateful to all of our fans for respecting this difficult decision and our privacy at this time. We wish this news would have come from us first. We love you all.”
Hadid also confirmed the breakup on Twitter.
“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 a relationship but in life in general,” she wrote. “I’m forever grateful for the love, time and life lessons 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. x G.”
Fans of the couple suspected that there could be trouble in paradise after the former “One Direction” member posted a picture on Instagram with the caption, “When life throws you lemons, catch em so they don’t hit you in the f–king face.”
According to a source the couple broke up due to their busy work schedules.
“Sadly, Zayn and Gigi have separated.” the source said. “They have crazy work schedules that would put pressure on any relationship.”
The 22-year-old supermodel and 25-year-old singer were last pictured together in January leaving Gigi’s home. They had celebrated their two-year dating anniversary just a few months before.
