The outlet reported on Tuesday (March 13) that the One Direction alum and his model girlfriend, who first began dating in 2015, called it quits earlier this month.
“They are no longer a couple but they do remain close and are supportive of each other. The reality is that they’ve grown apart, having been together for a long time,” said an undisclosed source, going on to cite work pressures and erratic schedules. “It’s a mutual decision so no one has completely ruled out a reunion in the future, but for now that’s not where their heads are at.”
The former couple haven’t been pictured together since January, toward the end of Hadid’s fashion week appearances in Paris, and their posts about each other on social media have been few and far between. Zayn last shared an Instagram snapshot with Hadid’s mother, Yolanda, in September, while Hadid posted an Instagram story celebrating their two-year anniversary in November.
Neither party has officially confirmed the breakup.
