Malik called Hadid an incredible soul and explained that he was grateful for everyone that is respecting their decision.
The ex-One Direction band member, however, added that this was a "difficult decision" and asked fans for "privacy at this time".
Millennials everywhere are crying into their selfie sticks right now because Zayn Malik, pop star, Hot Man, and occasional robot and Gigi Hadid, model, cheeseburger queen, and also occasional robot, have broken up after two years of dating. The two have often bonded over fashion: she photographed a Versace Versus campaign that he starred in, and admitted to Vogue magazine that they often wore each other's clothes.
They have both commented on the break up via Twitter.
"They have insane work schedules that would put pressure on any relationship". "It's actually not that hard for us [to line up schedules]", he said. "Thank God! Because I'm really not, so she helps organize my schedule around seeing her". In fact, I'm willing to bet some serious money Hadid and Malik wrote these statements together and celebrated with a glass of champagne and a soft, warm hug. We may never know the real reason behind their breakup, but we do know one thing: They made one heck of a cute couple. He later unfollowed his ex on the social media platform. Hadid's last post with her ex-boyfriend in it was on January 12.
Meanwhile, the model last appeared on Malik's Instagram on November 1 in a photo showing off their superhero Halloween costumes.
Then in May 2016, the two officially went public with their relationship when they appeared on the red carpet together at the 2016 Met Gala.
