Are Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik Dating, Or Just “Hanging Out”?
Yesterday afternoon, while my roommate and I were watching One Direction’s AMA performance, the conversation naturally turned to Zayn Malik: the boy who not only left, but had the audacity to (rightly) say that the band sang generic songs.
Even though One Direction is a band rather than a celebrity couple, there’s no denying that Zayn broke up with the rest of the boys earlier this year. Although critics predicted catastrophe for One Directon, the boys bounced back delivering an album that not only sold well, but was also more enjoyable and more mature than any record they ever put out with Zayn. Translation: ain’t got no time for f*ckboyz.
While the verdict’s still out on whether or not Zayn will pull a Justin Timberlake, or go the way of JC Chaze, it looks like he’s moved on a new woman: Gigi Hadid.

While it’s wrong to assume anything is true after only seeing one picture, what’s undeniably clear is that Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are hanging out. It’s one thing to be seen hanging out with somebody at a party, and it’s another thing altogether to be photographed together alone, in the car after an AMA afterparty.
An unnamed source told Us Weekly that, “it’s a very new thing. They’re just seeing where it goes,” while confirming that even though neither of them is ready to put a label on things, both celebrities are “definitely” seeing each other. A different unnamed source even went so far to say that Kendall Jenner set them up.
While I have about as much faith in unnamed sources as I do in the rumor that Rihanna’s new album is coming out on Friday, there are crazier things that I’ve heard. Gigi has likely known Zayn for years, seeing as once upon a time her best friend used to date one of his band members.
Even though I haven’t even gone shopping for Thanksgiving dinner yet, I’ve already started making my Christmas list. So far, I only want one thing: please let the rumors be true, and let Gigi and Zayn assume their reign as Hollywood’s hottest celebrity couple of 2016. Until then, enjoy this video of Harry Styles rolling his eyes at Gigi Hadid on the AMA red carpet.
