Zayn Malik reportedly dumped Gigi Hadid just two weeks after her 21st birthday. The former couple seemed to be so incredibly happy together but now Zayn Malik has decided to live out his rock star fantasy.
Hollywood Life reports that according to Life & Style magazine, Zayn Malik dumped Gigi Hadid so that he could “live the rockstar lifestyle.” This decision of the 23-year-old singer led to Hadid’s friends encouraging her to get back out on the dating scene. But the heartache is certainly too much for Gigi Hadid that she said that “she’s not ready to see other people yet.”
It seems like it was just yesterday when Zayn Malik proudly flaunted Gigi Hadid as his girlfriend. Especially when Gigi Hadid showed off her enviable fit physique in the 2016 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.
Her photos were too hot to handle that Zayn Malik couldn’t contain himself at the time. The former One Direction star even reminded his friends that he’s one lucky stud by sending them copies of the magazine.
“As soon as Sports Illustrated‘s Swimsuit Edition with Gigi’s shoot in it came out, Zayn asked an assistant to go to as many news stands as possible and pick up several copies,” the source revealed to Hollywood Life. “Not only was he being hugely supportive of Gigi’s shoot by buying several copies,” the source continued, “he also wanted to send some back to his friends in England and show off his new girlfriend.”
This isn’t the first time that Zayn Malik has publicly broken a popular celebrity’s heart. The 23-year-old former One Direction star dated the Little Mix singer, Perrie Edwards, in 2011. The beloved couple then got engaged in 2013 but unfortunately, Zayn Malik ended their relationship through a text message, as reported by The Sun.
It totally upset Edwards and she even broke down in tears once as she performed an emotional song “The End” with her bandmates back in August. But she is a much stronger person now, and although she liked the fact that Malik wrote the song for her, it didn’t really bother her anymore.
“If she heard the song a few months ago she would have had more of an emotional reaction to it,” another source previously told HollywoodLife. “But her tears about the breakup are not there anymore. She has moved on.”
