Model Gigi Hadid has vowed to always support singer Zayn Malik “as a friend” after confirming their romance is over.
The stars hit headlines on Tuesday (13Mar18) amid reports suggesting they had decided to part ways after more than two years of dating, and Zayn subsequently acknowledged and confirmed the news in a post on Twitter.
“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 friend,” he told fans. “She has such an incredible soul.”
Thanking his followers for their messages of support, he added, “I’m grateful to all of our fans for respecting this difficult decision and our privacy at this time; we wish this news could have come from us first. We love you all.”
Gigi has since offered up her own views on the split, insisting she will treasure the love they shared during their time as a couple.
“Breakup statements often seem impersonal because there is really no way to put into words what two people experience over a few years… not only in the relationship, but in life in general,” the beauty began in a post on social media.
“I’m forever grateful for the love, time, and life lessons that Z and I shared,” she continued. “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 be.”
The sad news emerged four months after Gigi, 22, celebrated the couple’s second anniversary with a video clip of herself kissing Zayn, 25.
“2 yrs w (years with) my favorite human,” she captioned the sweet shot.
She previously dated Joe Jonas, while the former One Direction star broke off his engagement to Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards in 2015, just three months before stepping out with Gigi.
