The Zayn Malik Gigi Hadid split is brewing once again – this time because of rumors that Malik cheated on his model girlfriend.
The rumors stemmed from text messages the former One Direction singer allegedly sent to a woman. Reports indicated that the Pillowtalk hitmaker begged Hadid to ignore the cheating rumors. Apparently, he has proven to Hadid that the text messages are fake. The model allegedly wants to believe that his boyfriend is loyal to her. However, she is also totally embarrassed by the persistent cheating speculations.
A source told Hollywood Life that Malik had explained to Hadid that the cheating texts were fabricated by an obsessed fan. “Gigi [Hadid] has accepted that they’re fake, too, and is pretty sure that Zayn didn’t cheat on her. It doesn’t make it any easier, but she realizes she has to have a thick skin when it comes to dating Zayn because these kinds of malicious rumors will always surface,” the insider said.
Could Malik’s explanation end speculations about the Zayn Malik Gigi Hadid split?
The couple started dating a few months after Malik called off his engagement with fiancé Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards. They announced their relationship in December 2015.
This is not the first time that Malik was accused of cheating on his girlfriend. There have been rumors that he cheated on Perrie with a waitress back in 2013. In his She Don’t Love Me song, Malik seems to have admitted being unfaithful to Edwards. The two dated for four years before they split in August 2015.
The Mind of Mine singer’s name has also been dragged in the latest Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s Instagram war. The Sorry singer accused Gomez of cheating on him with the former 1D member while they were still together years ago.
Malik was also recently slammed after photos of him and Hadid’s vacation in Haiti surfaced online. The images showed the model pushing a canoe while a relaxed Malik is onboard and enjoying his cigarette.
