Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have officially become the most recent breakup to shake Hollywood. After two years of dating and even rumors of engagement, the model and singer each announced Tuesday (March 13) via Twitter that they had called it quits.
“She has such an incredible soul,” Malik said of his model ex-girlfriend in his statement. Hadid’s statement mentioned she wants “nothing but the best for him” and she “will continue to support him as a friend that [she has] immense respect and love for.”

Hadid starred alongside Malik in an ultra-steamy music video for his debut solo single, “Pillowtalk,” and a few months later, the former One Direction member permanently covered up his tattoo of another ex — Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards. You might think Malik would avoid getting his love interests inked from then on, but alas, a tattoo of eyes with a striking resemblance to Hadid’s was first spotted across his chest in January.
While fans have varying speculations surrounding the reason behind the pair’s breakup, it seems just about everyone can agree on one thing: Zayn should probably stop getting tattoos of his girlfriends’ body parts.
The Twitter community definitely did not hold back in pointing out Malik’s fatal flaw:
