Oh no! Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have ended their relationship after dating for two years and four months.

The initial report, which comes from The Sun, said that the couple split earlier this month after gradually drifting apart. Hadid, a 22-year-old model, and Malik, a 25-year-old pop star, started dating after they met at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show back in November 2015. Zayn ended his engagement to Little Mix star Perrie Edwards just three months before that.

Malik issued a statement shortly after the reports had surfaced. He confirmed the news in this tweet posted below:

He spoke very highly of Gigi, and said that they had an “incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship.” Malik went on to say that the couple wished they could have shared the news first (instead of it being in shared in a media report).

Gigi’s statement also praised Zayn. Hadid wrote that she was “forever grateful for the love, time, and life lessons” that she shared with Malik.

“I want nothing but the best for him and will continue to support him as a friend that I have immense respect and love for," Hadid wrote.

Their breakup is being blamed on their busy schedules, according The Sun's report.
