The 20-year-old model tweeted, then deleted, several messages aimed at fan fervor over the budding couple's new relationship status. Gigi and 22-year-old Zayn were snapped holding hands this past Saturday night at their frequent hot spot, The Nice Guy, in Hollywood, California, confirming their romance.
"There's just no need to be judgmental about situations that are not your own. Let live," Gigi tweeted on Monday. "Sometimes life just happens. For whatever reason in whatever timing. And sometimes it doesn't make sense til it does. That's it."
"If there was a real way to sit with each one of you and tell you my side of things, I would. But there's not, so I won't," she added. "I've found the only way to happiness is by living as though the microscope isn't there."
It appears Gigi also got defensive about some followers speculating that her and Zayn's relationship is a PR stunt.
"You want the public to consume and believe your fake [relationship] -- but don't want to be judged for it? Lol doesn't work that way," one user replied to her initial tweet about being judgmental, to which Gigi responded, "Who are you to say what is fake? Your comment proves my point exactly. If you don't know you don't know."
Gigi later responded to a fan who asked her why she deleted all of her previous tweets, to which she replied, "Just don't need the dramzz, can write in my journal instead lol."
After she deleted that tweet as well, she left her followers with a simple picture of palm trees, reading, "Chill."
A source told ET that Gigi and Joe's early November breakup was "amicable" and "not dramatic," but in light of recent events, the former Jonas Brothers frontman could be changing his tune. Joe, 26, has since unfollowed Gigi on Twitter and Instagram, and also deleted a photo he had previously posted of himself seated next to Zayn and Kanye West. "#SQUAD," the caption read, which was originally posted in June.
