Just when we were trying to come to terms with the fact that Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are no more together, here is new about yet another breakup to break our hearts. After numerous speculations around their relationship status, pop star Zayn Malik and supermodel Gigi Hadid officially announced the end of their relationship through heartfelt posts on social media. The pair was last seen together in January and there have been hushed rumours about what is off between the pair.
Interestingly, just like Jen and Justin, Zayn and Gigi parted ways in the most classy way, heaping praises upon each other, being thankful about the good times they spent together and promising to remain friends. In his post about the breakup, Zayn said, “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 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.”
Gigi in turn revealed, “Breakup statements often seem impersonal because there is really no way to put into words what two people experience 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 be.”
Zayn (25) and Gigi (22) started dating in late 2015 but they made their love affair public only in mid 2016 after they made a public appearance together at the Met Gala.
