We’re really not OK. Singer Zayn Malik and model Gigi Hadid have called it quits after just over three years together, Life & Style can confirm, and we’re honestly about to cry over it. The pair has put their relationship on hold while they navigate their burgeoning careers, but we really hope it’s short-lived. The couple has broken up in the past, but the time apart rarely lasted much longer than a few weeks before they were seen out as if they’d never split in the first place. Though we’re unsure of the future of Zigi, we can at least take a look back at where it all started for the ex-lovebirds and remember what once was.
It all started in Nov. 2015, when Gigi ended things with singer Joe Jonas. Zayn and Gigi were spotted leaving an American Music Awards after-party in LA hosted by Justin Bieber and the rumors were effectively sparked. A source from Us Weekly said at the time that they weren’t doing the “boyfriend and girlfriend” thing quite yet. “But seeing each other? Definitely. He’s chuffed.” We would’ve been too if we were Zayn. Being a rebound for a JoBro is a high honor. On Nov. 29, the couple finally set the record straight on their relationship and made their debut holding hands while leaving a restaurant in West Hollywood. The era of Zigi officially began here. Scroll through for the definitive timeline of Zayn and Gigi’s relationship.
