Are Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik Back On? Model Seemingly Confirms Rekindled Romance with New Photo
Gigi Hadid shared a cuddly photo on her Instagram story with Zayn Malik after attending the Ocean's 8 premiere
And on Tuesday, Hadid shared a cuddly photo on her Instagram story after attending the Ocean’s 8 premiere. Although Malik’s face was hidden in the image, his bleached hair and tattoos were easily recognizable.
“After party like making it rain with Pokémon cards,” the 23-year-old model captioned the snap, adding cartoon characters — and a small yellow heart — to the photo.
Speculation that the couple might be rekindling their romance began when the 25-year-old singer was spotted at Hadid’s N.Y.C. home in April, leaving the apartment the next day wearing the same hoodie as the day prior.

Hadid told fans in her own comments, “Breakup statements often seem impersonal because there is really no way to put into words what two people experience over a few years … not only in the relationship, but in life in general. 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 and love for.”
The model seemed to keep things open-ended, ending her statement, “As for the future, whatever’s meant to be will be. xG”

“I was in love, and I think that’s pretty evident,” he said, adding the song was written “about seven or eight months ago.”
“I was aspiring to be in love with someone for the rest of my life and the rest of theirs, as we all do,” he added about their split. “Things change, and we move forward in life. Times change, but that’s what I was thinking when I wrote it.”
