Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid make up the poster couple for on-again-off-again relationships.
Following some speculation and social media silence, it has been confirmed that the glamour pair has split. Again.
“They’re done,” a source told US Weekly. “They could get back together, but it’s over for now.”
The couple has reportedly been taking some time apart since November.
However, it did not go unnoticed that the two were absent from each other’s social media sites, with no holiday pictures posted and Gigi having gone to Taylor Swift’s New Year’s Eve party on her own.
The 23-year-old model’s last post of Zayn, 25, was in October.
Another source told Us Weekly Gigi “tried hard to make it work,” but Zayn has “a lot of his own issues that she couldn’t help him get through”.
The relationship is said to have turned toxic since they reunited in May after their March break-up. “She cut herself off from all her friends every time they were together,” the second source told Us Weekly. “She focused all her time and energy on him, but it just got to be too much.”
Cosmopolitan reports that Zayn is heartbroken and “not in a good place”.
“After arguing for months Gigi and Zayn have decided to call time on their relationship,” a source said. “He’s not in a great place right now.”
They are said to have split because they hardly ever spent time together. Zayn is always busy in the studio while Gigi travels the world with her modelling career.
They started dating in 2015. Following their brief break-up in March, the two had nothing but good things to say about each other, but neither has said anything about their most recent break-up.
As before, he has officially unfollowed Gigi on social media. The two presumably did not spend Christmas together.
