Sad news today, as Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have both confirmed their break-up!

From what we can gather from both of their social media accounts, their two year relationship ended rather amicably (a pretty rare occurrence for A-listers, we must say) and they appear to still be the best of friends. Aww!

The pair didn’t want to make a big deal about it, but were reportedly forced to make some sort of statement after some rumours got out and fans were left confused…

“Breakup statements often seem impersonal because there is really no way to put into words what two people experience together over a few years… not only in the relationship but in life in general,” Gigi Hadid wrote Twitter.

“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.

“As for the future, whatever’s meant to be will always be.”

Zayn Malik dutifully issued a similar statement on his own Twitter page, with nothing but fond words for his supermodel now ex-girlfriend…

“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 friend,” Zayn wrote on his own Twitter.

“She has such an incredible soul. I’m grateful to all our fans for respecting this difficult decision and our privacy at this time, we wish this news could have come from us first.”

We have tears in our eyes. Why oh why couldn’t these two make it work?!
