Gigi Hadid Gushes About Zayn Malik, Calls Him Her Muse and Her Man

Can you feel the Instagram love? Though Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik broke up in March, it’s become increasingly evident the split was short-lived. Now the 23-year-old model is singing Malik’s praises on Instagram.

In an Instagram story posted close to midnight on Friday, June 29, Hadid posted a photo of the 25-year-old One Direction alum with the words “muze” and “my manz” stamped on the image, along with flirty graphics.

It’s a marked relationship status change from March 13, when both stars confirmed their breakup in separate Twitter posts. “I’m forever grateful for the love, time, and life lessons that Z and I shared,” Hadid wrote in hers. “I want nothing for the best for him and will continue to support him as a friend that I have immense respect and love for.”

Malik, meanwhile, wrote that he had “an incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship” with Hadid. He added: “I have a huge amount of respect and adoration for Gigi as a woman and a friend. She has such an incredible soul.”

Two weeks ago, however — and after the couple was spotted kissing — GQ published a cover story about the “Let Me” singer in which he implied he and Hadid had informally rekindled their two-year romance. “We’re adults,” he said. “We don’t need to put a label on it, make it something for people’s expectations … I’m really thankful that I met her.”
