Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have confirmed their break up in separate, devastating statements

They've parted ways

By DAISY MURRAY  March 14th, 2018

Model Gigi Hadid and singer Zayn Malik have ended their relationship, after two years and four months.

The young pair both individually took to Twitter to release moving statements about their break-up and what it meant for each of them.

After being absent from one another’s social media accounts for about a month, they have confirmed they are no longer together.

Malik, who is 25 years-old, detailed on his Twitter how important their relationship was to him, thanking fans for their continued support.



He wrote, ‘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,’ on Twitter. ‘She has such an incredible soul. I’m grateful to all of our fans for respecting this difficult decision and our privacy at the time, we wish this news could have come from us first. We love you all. xZ’

Hadid, 22-years-old, showed similar maturity, penning a particularly personal note about the young couple’s love and friendship. She also hinted at a possible reconciliation, hopefully pointing to their ongoing respect and care for each other.


She wrote, ‘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.’


Fans are understandably upset about the ending of the romantic relationship – the pair shared a lot, including their faith and fame. However, it looks as though this is far from the end of the road when it comes to their friendship.


We’ve got a few scientifically proven ways to get over a breakup to help Gigi and Zayn out:

Get that revenge body

Whatever the reason for getting in shape, focusing on fitness is always a good thing. Sure, you may have started working out to shed that relationship weight and get back your rocking bod, but after a point, it stops being about the other person and starts being about you. Working out shows that you're ready to take initiative and start putting yourself first. Sweating it out not only releases endorphins in your body, making you a happier person, it also makes you challenge yourself. It helps reduce stress and focuses your attention on other goals.

Get rid of all the stuff that reminds you of him

Definitely DON'T light his shirts on fire and fling them off a balcony — it's not a movie. But would a cleanse be the worst thing? De-cluttering personal space is all about identifying what still works for you and what doesn't. If you're having trouble moving on, holding onto a pair of his boxers "just to sleep in" isn't helping. It's a constant reminder of the relationship and that it's now over. Out of sight and out of mind. Relationships, like everything else, are like a habit, and every time you linger on those old memories, you're giving in to the habit.

Get a fabulous new 'do

Coco Chanel once said, " A women who cuts her hair is about to change her life." Cutting hair is like shedding skin, it marks a new chapter in the cycle of things. Sure, it may sound silly but everyone needs a change once in a while, however temporary it may be. You've reached a new stage of your life, even if the shift is internal, sometimes the best way to let the world know is with an external transformation. According to Dr Vivian Diller, "changing our appearance is a proactive measure when other aspects of our life feel beyond our control."

Drown your sorrows in a box of chocolates

Chocolate doesn't just taste good, it is good and it makes you feel good. Of course, we're talking about dark chocolate here because coming off a sugar high isn't the best feeling. Dark chocolate is the good kind of comfort food, the kind that releases serotonin proven to make people happier and less stressed. If you manage to get your hands on an almond and dark chocolate bar, make sure to do it some damage. Almonds are rich in Vitamin B, which help you cope with stress and anxiety. The combination doesn't just taste amazing, it's nature's very own upper. 

Host a girl's night

Have a girl's night, sit in, go out, whatever. Just do it. When stress rolls around, men's 'fight or flight' instincts tend to kick in. Women are more likely to tend to the issue, gather together and work through it. Spending time with other ladies in this manner releases oxytocin in the brain which is good for your feel-good emotions. It's also fun. Spending time with the ladies in your life will let you know you're not alone, that other people have had similar experiences as you and may offer you a solution that wouldn't cross your mind otherwise.
