The Sun exclusively reported that the pair’s “crazy work schedules” was behind the breakup.
Hadid is a supermodel who has been featured by Versace, Fendi, Balmain and other high-end brands. Malik is a singer and former member of the band One Direction.
It appears the breakup has also extended to family as Malik unfollowed both his ex-girlfriend and her mom Yolanda on Instagram after he released his statement.
Rumors of the superstar couple’s romance began in Nov. 2015: E! News reports that the pair were spotted leaving the American Music Awards together. In Jan. 2016, they appeared in a flirty music video for Malik’s hit single “Pillowtalk”.
Their first official appearance together was in the 2016 Met Gala. Both fashionistas, the pair covered Vogue in Aug. 2017 and admitted they shared wardrobes. They also modelled for a Versace campaign together. NVG
