It Took Joe Jonas 7 Years, But He Finally Got Gigi Hadid To Go Out With Him
Gigi Hadid breaking up with Cody Simpson was the best thing to happen to Joe Jonas since him and his brothers booked Camp Rock. It’s never occurred to me to ask the question, ‘how did Gigi and Joe meet?’, but I always assumed it was recently and it only happened because of the magic that is the Taylor Swift squad.
False. Joe Jonas and Gigi Hadid met for the first time at the Grammy Awards when he was 20 and she was 13. While answering some fan questions on Periscope, Gigi let us all in on how Joe first asked her out. Even though it would have been statuary rape had anything happened between them, Hadid reveled that “he asked me to a baseball game, and I said, ‘No.”
Although she claims it wasn’t a lack of interest that made her turn him down, but because, “I was so nervous; I literally didn’t even know what it meant to hang out with a boy. And also, Grammys are on a Sunday, and I didn’t want to tell him that I had school the next day, so I was like, ‘No, maybe next time.’” Although the fact that she was attending the event with her mother and stepfather probably had something to do with it. Even though Joe was a wholesome boy who wore a promise ring around town, he was still twenty-years-old and incredibly famous.
Because he’s persistent, Joe didn’t take no for an answer and asked for Gigi’s phone number but according to Gigi, “I didn’t have my phone with me, and I don’t think he did either because we were at the Grammys,” Hadid said of their first encounter. “And so he wrote his number on a piece of paper and gave it to my mom.”
She added, “And then we’ve been friends ever since. Until now. We’re more than friends. Obvs.”
