Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid have confirmed their split in separate statements.

One of the most idealised (also good looking) couples – Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid have called it quits. Both of them have taken to social media to release separate statements. Gigi first broke the news – Breakup statements always seem impersonal because there is really no way to put into words what two people experience together over a few years not only i the relationship but in life in general. I am forever grateful for the love, time and lesson 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 is meant to be will always be. – G. It’s a heartbreaking day for for all Zayn – Gigi fans who have adored this couple for the last few years. Zayn Malik makes girlfriend Gigi Hadid watch Shah Rukh Khan’s Devdas just because he loves the film!

Zayn further confirmed the news when he released his own statement 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 am 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. Seems to be the split has been difficult but an amicable one where both will continue to respect each other despite going separate ways.

It was only last year, we shared pictures of the two celebrating Gigi Hadid’s birthday. These two had redefined love and fairytales for us with their adorable gestures for each other. For all the fans out there, Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid were the ultimate couple. But you never know right, if Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez can get back together, we can always hope our favourite couple does too!
