A source told the British newspaper, “Sadly Zayn and Gigi have separated. They are no longer a couple but they do remain close and are supportive of each other. The reality is that they’ve grown apart, having been together for a long time. They have crazy work schedules that would put pressure on any relationship.”
“This is definitely the end for now, but this isn’t a bitter split and they both have respect for each other,” the source continued. “It’s a mutual decision so no one has completely ruled out a reunion in the future, but for now that’s not where their heads are at.”
Eagle-eyed fans noticed that the former One Direction singer unfollowed the model AND her mom, Yolanda Hadid, on Instagram, further legitimizing the breakup rumors. Gigi, however, is still following Zayn at the moment.

Zayn and Gigi were first linked back in November 2015 after they were seen leaving and American Music Awards after party together. They were reported to just be “casually hanging out” at the time, but their relationship became more and more serious as the weeks progressed.
Neither the model nor the musician have commented on the breakup rumors, so right now nothing is 100% confirmed.
