Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik's Relationship: A Complete Timeline
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are many things: hot, rich, occasionally robots, and, also, occasionally together. The two of them reportedly first started dating in November 2015, and ever since then it's been a roller coaster of cute Instagram posts, sound bites, breakup rumors, and his-and-her Nutella jars. Us Weekly is currently reporting that the couple, who confirmed they were together in October, broke up recently. Of course, it's best to not freak out until Hadid and Malik say something themselves. Until then, let's take a look back at their relationship—Spider-Man Halloween costumes and all.
November 2015: Us Weekly reports Hadid and Malik are dating. They were photographed leaving Justin Bieber's American Music Awards after-party together; a few days later, paparazzi caught them holding hands leaving a restaurant in Los Angeles.
January 2016: Malik says he and Hadid are just "good friends," but evidence—i.e., his face on Hadid's lock screen—points to the contrary. Hadid then makes an appearance in Malik's "Pillowtalk" video, and they flirt back and forth on Twitter.
February 2016: Malik quasi-confirms he's dating Hadid when radio interviewers refer to her as his girlfriend and he doesn't correct them.
April 2016: The couple do a spread together in Naples for Vogue, which refers to Malik as Hadid's "real-life boyfriend." The next month they attend the Met Gala together.
June 2016: Several outlets report that Hadid and Malik have broken up, but she squashes those rumors in an interview with Elle magazine. Also, these his-and-her Nutella jars she shared on Instagram say a thousand words.
December 2016: They continue giving lovey-dovey quotes about each other. Malik reveals the "straight-up" way he asked Hadid out.
January 2017: Hadid sparks engagement rumors when she's spotted wearing a ring on that finger. This turns out to be just, well, a rumor.
September 2017: They vacation together with Hadid's mother, which points to things moving in a positive direction.
October 2017: Hadid and Malik wear matching Spider-Man–inspired Halloween costumes.
March 2018: Malik reveals on Twitter that he and Hadid have ended their relationship. Hadid later confirms this on social media, as well.
April 2018: But wait! TMZ captures the two of them kissing in New York City, so is the relationship back on?
June 2018: Malik says he and Hadid don't feel the need to label their relationship because "they're adults." Meanwhile, she posts a photo of the two cuddling to her Instagram Story.
October 2018: It seems like they're officially back on when Hadid posts this pic to her Instagram and captions it "flyin' home to my happy place."
January 2019: Breakup rumors flare up, and E! News reports the twosome are spending time apart. "They are in different points in their lives right now and decided they needed the time to breathe apart from each other," an "insider" tells the outlet. "They are still in touch and both hope that things will work out, but their relationship is always up and down." Us Weekly is also reporting the two have broken up.
