GIGI & ZAYN CALL IT A DAYModel Gigi Hagid and singer Zayn Malik have called time on their 2 year relationship.

While the couple have remained tight lipped on the reason for the ‘amicable separation’ a friend of Gigi’s spilt the beans to Closer Magazine. “Zayn was always more introverted than socialite Gigi, who had a wide circle of friends and loved being out on the showbiz scene. He didn’t get on that well with her showbiz friends and that become a bone of contention.”

“Zayn was the one to end things following a string of heated rows, leaving her heartbroken – even though she knew, deep down, it was the right decision”, they added.

A source at The Sun newspaper reported something similar, commenting, “They are no longer a couple but they do remain close and are supportive of each other. The reality is that they’ve grown apart, having been together for a long time. They both have crazy work schedules that would put pressure on any relationship.”

The pair dated for two years and announced their split on Twitter with two personal statements. Former One Direction star Zayn said he had a “huge amount of respect and adoration for Gigi”, while Gigi spoke of how she wants “nothing but the best for Zayn and will continue to support him as a friend that she has immense respect and love for.”

Little Mix fans were delighted by the news, seeing as though just over two years ago Zayn famously dumped then fiancé Perry Edwards by text – after dating for 4 years – taking up with model and socialite Gigi very shortly after. #Karmaisabitch is trending on social media this month.
