Gigi Hadid & Zayn Malik’s Backstory of “How They Met” is Starting to Unravel
Another day, another problematic Gigi Hadid–Zayn Malik quote. All week long, the attractive AF couple has been doling out offensive commentary, starting with Gigi’s impersonation of Buddha, which Zayn defended in the worst way, and ending with the 21-year-old model claiming she’s “exotic” and probably shares DNA with Imaan Hammam. Actually, did we say “ending?” ’cause the Zigi remarks actually didn’t end there.
While on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the blonde beauty was asked how she and her 24-year-old former One Direction guy met. She claims, “We actually met at a friend’s birthday party a few years ago and then he was in New York to come to the Victoria’s Secret show last year I think and ended up not coming.”
“I was like, ‘I’ll play it cool. I’ll go to the after party,’ she continues. “He wasn’t there.”
“Later that week, we ended up going on our first date,” she adds. “We played it cool for, like, 10 minutes and then I was like, ‘You’re really cute.’ We connected, like, really quickly. We have kind of the same sense of humor and started sharing videos.”
While that may seem all well and cute, Zayn told a different story last year. In a November 2016 interview with Evening Standard, the magazine boasted that the two met at at Victoria’s Secret party — you know, the one GH said ZM didn’t attend — and he supposedly recognized her “from her picture” and asked her out. So… did they meet at a friend’s bday bash or did he know her from her photograph?
True, it could be an honest mistake on one or both of their parts, but something’s fishy to us…
Can you really trust the things that come out of Gigi’s mouth? Look at these problematic quotes:
