Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid have gone in different directions.
The former boy bander and his supermodel girlfriend announced Tuesday they’ve split after more than two years together.
Zayn, 25, addressed the break-up on Twitter and praised his former flame, 22, as an “incredible soul.”
“Gigi and I had an incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship and I have a huge amount of respect and adoration for Gigi as a woman and friend,” he wrote.
“She has such an incredible soul. I’m grateful to all of our fans for respecting this difficult decision and our privacy at this time, we wish this news could have come from us first.”
Hadid also took to Twitter to confirm the split, and said she will be “forever grateful” for the time she spent with the “Pillowtalk” singer.
“Breakup statements often seem impersonal because there is really no way to put into words what two people experience together over a few years…not only in a relationship, but in life in general,” she wrote.
“I’m forever grateful for the love, time, and life lessons that Z and I shared. I want nothing but the best for him and will continue to support him as a friend that I have immense respect…
