Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik release separate statements confirming split

Gigi Hadid has announced her split from partner Zayn Malik, telling her fans and followers that "whatever's meant to be will always be".

The two were also photographed out together that day in one of their final - and perhaps most iconic - joint street style outings.

Soon after Zayn shared his statement, Gigi also addressed the news on Twitter.

In a statement on Twitter, Zayn, 25, writes, "Gigi and I had an incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship and I have a huge amount of respect and adoration for Gigi as a woman and a friend".

And even though they have made a decision to go their separate ways, the source explained that they still "have respect for each other".

The social media warning signs are certainly there, as the One Direction alum has recently unfollowed the supermodel AND her momma, Yolanda Hadid, on Instagram.

The Victoria's Secret model added that she wants "nothing but the best for him, ' before adding that she will 'continue to support him has a friend". She's quite classy and that. She carries it well.

Fans suspected Zayn may have permanently declared his love for Hadid when he debuted a new tattoo on his chest in January that looked just like her eyes. Zayn was previously engaged to Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards.

While they enjoyed keeping parts of their relationship private, they weren't afraid to show the world how much they cared about each other.

The two covered Vogue together last August, and spoke of how they frequently shared items of clothing.
