Did Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid split for good recently? Did the former One Direction member really dump her just two weeks after her birthday? Was a mystery blonde really the cause of their break up?

According to Hollywood Life, the celebrity couple called it quits earlier this week. And it was the “Pillowtalk” singer  who initiated the breakup. “Zayn broke the news to Gigi two weeks after her birthday,” an insider was quoted as saying. “He sat her down at dinner and told her how he felt. Zayn told Gigi that he wanted to keep his options open and work on himself.”

Kendall Jenner’s best friend reportedly did not take it well. “Gigi was shocked because she thought they were a perfect couple,” the source added. “She is absolutely heartbroken and has been feeling really sad ever since.” What made Zayn want to leave his girlfriend? Is there even any truth behind the Zayn and Gigi Hadid split rumours?

According to The Sun, Zayn was recently spotted on a hike in Malibu, California. Hadid was nowhere to be seen but he was accompanied by a blonde female. Did this mystery blonde cause their break up? It must be noted that it is yet to be confirmed if Zayn really did break things off. The Sun also identified the girl with Zayn as just a member of his management team.

Another gossip news site even claims Zayn and Hadid have not split up. “Hadid isn’t looking for her next boyfriend because she still has one. She and Malik remain happily together,” Gossip Cop reported. The gossip site pointed out that Hadid even tweeted about his recent TV appearance right before they supposedly ended things.

“The model celebrated the singer’s appearance on ‘The Voice’ … with the heart eyes emoji,” Gossip Cop said.
