Zayn Malik & Gigi Hadid Confirm Break Up Rumors on Twitter

Zayn Malik's Instagram followers knew something was up in the hours before his announcement on Tuesday, March 13, that he and Gigi Hadid had called it quits.

Back in January, Gigi posted this absolutely adorable post wishing Zayn a Happy Birthday, and looking at it now, I'm getting damn teary!

"When life throws you lemons, catch em so you don't get hit in the f-king face", Malik captioned the photo.

Prior to confirming their breakup, fans began to speculate that there was trouble in paradise due to the caption on the former One Direction member's photo.

After Malik posted his tweet, Hadid followed with one of her own.

Malik made a flattering statement describing Hadid as "an incredible soul" for whom he has "a huge amount of respect and adoration".

Hadid took to Twitter first, stating "I am grateful for the love, time, and life lessons that Z and I shared". I'm grateful of our fans for respecting this hard decision and our privacy at this time. "As for the future, whatever's meant to be will always be. xG". The two truly seemed to be head over heels in love, we can't believe they're no longer together!

The singer and model announced their shock split on social media, with the pair both saying they still love and respected each other.

Hadid and Malik first sparked romance rumors in 2015 after they were spotted leaving an American Music Awards after-party together.

Previously, Malik went through a public break-up with Little Mix star Perrie Edwards.

They posed together on the front of Vogue Magazine for the August 2017 edition.
