Cody Simpson and his model girlfriend Gigi Hadid have reportedly broken up.

According to E!, the young couple has decided to end their relationship to focus on their careers. This marks the second time Simpson and Hadid have split. In May 2014, they parted ways because of their busy schedules, E! reports.

Billboard has reached out to Simpson's representatives for comment.

A rep for Hadid told E! that the two will remain friends. "Cody and Gigi want each other to be in a place right now that allows him to only focus on his music, fans, and new message, while she can focus and continue building her career," the rep said. "They love each other dearly and have split up in hopes that growing on their own paths will bring them together in the future."

In March, noted fashion photographer Mario Testino snapped some shots of the lovely couple as a part of his "Towel Series." Testino previewed the session on his Instagram with an intimate shot that leaves very little to the imagination.
