Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid have split after over two years together.
The couple announced the split in separate statements on social media.
Zayn wrote on Twitter: ”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. 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”
Gigi took to her own social media channels shortly after to release her own statement, where she said she was ”forever grateful” for the time they shared together.
She wrote in her own message: ”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. 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 (sic)
A source recently revealed that the pair had split because they had ”grown apart” over time.
