Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik Release Duel Breakup Statements on Twitter

"She has such an incredibly soul".

The Sun reports the supermodel and the former One Direction member have broken up after almost two and a half years together.

Most recently, Gigi posted a loving birthday tribute to Zayn on Instagram which showed no signs of trouble.

"ZiGi", as the couple's 66 million Instagram followers and 35 million Twitter followers affectionately call them, asked for privacy in their statements announcing their split. You might think Malik would avoid getting his love interests inked from then on, but alas, a tattoo of eyes with a striking resemblance to Hadid's was first spotted across his chest in January.

Meanwhile, Hadid echoed Malik's sentiments, tweeting, "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".

According to The Sun, the couple made the decision to split after their busy schedules added strain and distance to their high-profile romance.

"I'm forever grateful for the love, time, and life lessons that Z and I shared".

As for Hadid, she stated that she wants nothing but the best for Malik and will continue to support him as a friend. This could mean a number of things- maybe she is a busy person who just hasn't gotten around to it yet.

"Sadly Zayn and Gigi have separated", a source told the tabloid.

Sources close to the couple assure that the break up was mutual and there is no hard feelings or resentment between them.

Hadid and Malik first got together back in November 2015. "When Life throws you lemons, catch em so they don't hit you in the f***ing face", read his caption.
