While Zayn Malik has been crystal clear about leaving One Direction -- saying in an interview with Beats 1 on Thursday that he “never really wanted” to be in the group -- he’s less forthcoming about his relationship with Gigi Hadid.
In the same interview, when host Zane Lowe mentioned that Malik was “in a relationship,” the 23-year-old singer seemed to hint that the two are anything but official.
Malik and Hadid, 20, have been spotted out together a few times since the model broke things off with Joe Jonas in November. A source told ET at the time that the two were “just having fun,” but the two continued to share pics of each other on social media throughout the holidays. Malik posted a cuddled-up couple shot on Dec. 20 and Hadid shared a shirtless pic of the singer holding her cat on Jan 2.
It’s understandable that the two don’t get to spend much time together considering their busy schedules -- Hadid was in Paris this week for Fashion Week and Malik is preparing to launch his first solo single, "Pillowtalk," on Friday -- but maybe the singer’s comments are a sign that they’re over for good?
