While they enjoyed keeping parts of their relationship private, they weren't afraid to show the world how much they cared about each other. I'm grateful of our fans for respecting this hard decision and our privacy at this time.
Soon after Zayn shared his statement, Gigi also addressed the news on Twitter.
Hadid echoed Malik's fond sentiments, adding that she'll be "forever grateful for the love, time and life lessons" she shared with "Z". Sure, they did normal famous-couple things together, like attend the Met Gala arm-in-robotic-arm, post cute Instagrams together and publicly declare their love for each other's families, but there were so many more levels to their love!
The source said Malik and Hadid "have insane work schedules that would put pressure on any relationship".
"She's a very intelligent woman. She's quite classy and that", he gushed in November 2016. She carries it well. She wrote, "love this man more than I could ever put into words, & am inspired by his drive to be and do better everyday ✨ cheers to YOUR YEAR my @zayn - happiest happiest birthday & 25th year of life!"
Zayn appeared to hint at trouble in paradise with a cryptic Instagram selfie Tuesday.
What about that time Malik got a tattoo of her eyeballs?
The couple started dating back in the fall of 2015 following Hadid's relationship with Joe Jonas and Malik's broken-off engagement to Little Mix member Perrie Edwards. "I'm proud to be by your side". They were last photographed together in January, and the breakup is said to be pretty recent.
