Zayn Malik announces split with Gigi Hadid: “She has such an incredible soul”
From March 13, 2018
No more "Pillowtalk" for Zayn Malik and his longtime girlfriend Gigi Hadid: The couple has split.
In a statement on Twitter, Zayn, 25, writes, "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."
He adds, "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."
The couple, who were last photographed together on January 29, marked their two-year anniversary last November. The two have often bonded over fashion: she photographed a Versace Versus campaign that he starred in, and admitted to Vogue magazine that they often wore each other's clothes.
The news was first reported by the British tabloid The Sun, which claimed that the two had "drifted apart" due to the pressure of their careers.
