One Direction singer Zayn Malik has split from supermodel Gigi Hadid, The Sun reports. The couple had been together for two years, and were even rumored to be engaged.
Just this past January, Gigi had loving words for Zayn in this Instagram post on his birthday, saying “love this man more than I could ever put into words, & am inspired by his drive to be and do better everyday”.
They are said to have been separated amicably since the beginning of this month. The Sun’s anonymous source said the pair had drifted apart due to professional pressures, but remain close and supportive of each other.
Earlier today, Zayn hinted at the separation in this Instagram post, saying “When Life throws you lemons , catch em so they don’t hit you in the [expletive] face”.
The couple met at a Victoria’s Secret fashion show, where they were introduced, and Zayn asked Gigi out during their first encounter. Since then, the power couple has appeared together on magazine covers, in music videos and on social media.
Their breakup leaves us (and many fans) deeply saddened.
