Zayn’s got your back, Gigi.

Zayn Malik, 23, was seen embracing Gigi Hadid in New York City during fashion week on Saturday. The couple kept it casual, with Malik wearing an all-black ensemble and Hadid rocking ripped jeans, a white crop top and oversized red sweater.

This sighting comes just days after the former One Direction singer canceled his upcoming tour stop in Dubai, citing “extreme anxiety.”

“Dear fans, I have been working over the last three months to overcome my extreme anxiety around major live solo performances,” he wrote in a message posted through ticketing agents 117Live. “I feel I am making progress but I have today acknowledged that I do not feel sufficiently confident to move forward with the planned show in Dubai in October.”

One thing he was confident in? His significant other. Malik took to both Twitter and Instagram to share his affection and pride in Hadid.

On Friday, the singer posted a tweet about Hadid walking the runway to debut her new collection with Tommy Hilfiger, Tommy X Gigi.

“.@GiGiHadid Good luck tonight baby,” he wrote. “You’re about to show the world your amazing GxTH collection. I am so proud. You are an inspiration. X.”

He promoted the collaborative line one more time in a subsequent tweet, writing “Watching my girl live here Everyone support.”

And just before the show, Malik shared a photo of Hadid in her new line of clothing. “Good luck tonight baby. @gigihadid,” the “Pillowtalk” singer wrote in the post.

Though they briefly split in June, the couple have been very public about their rekindled romance. After sharing a statement about his canceled concert, Hadid tweeted out to her boyfriend to share her love and support.

“Z – I’ve seen the battles you go through and the way you fight to get to a place that allows you to get up there for your fans,” the model wrote. “Your bravery in those times makes me proud, but your honesty last night proved what you’re all about, being real. Human recognizes human. You made the best of the situation and have given your fans an opportunity to understand you better as a performer.”

“Those who can find compassion now are the ones that deserve to watch you continue to grow,” she continued. “We are all here to support you and make each experience easier. Your talent and good heart will never lead you wrong. Love you and so proud of you always ? xG.”
