Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik quickly became the hottest couple in Hollywood. Sorry, Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris, or Sofia Vegara and Joe Manganiello.
Us Weekly was the first to confirm that Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are dating, but the couple is in the very early stages of their relationship. On Tuesday, an insider gave the tabloid new details about the hot new couple.
“They seem equally super into each other, texting each other all the time. They’ve only been hanging out a couple of weeks.”
Sources even told E! News that Gigi and Zayn are just “casually hanging out” at the moment.
The former One Direction member watched Gigi Hadid as she made her mark at the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. That’s when he started crushing on the blonde beauty, according to the insider. In addition, Malik has been following Hadid’s burgeoning modeling career, and likes that she’s a down to earth person.
“He thinks she’s so hot. He takes interest in her shoots and videos she does. He thinks she’s sweet, too. She talks about her mom a lot and her family, and he likes that.”
Gigi Hadid, 20, and Zayn Malik, 22, were first photographed together in West Hollywood on Sunday, Nov. 22, after the 2015 American Music Awards. The model left The Nice Guy restaurant and jumped into a waiting car where Zayn was waiting for her.
Hadid just ended her relationship with singer Joe Jonas earlier this month, while Malik ended his two-year engagement to Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards in late August. But it looks like Hadid’s new romance could cause some trouble with her BFF Taylor Swift. You see, Malik is the same guy who had a beef with Swift’s boyfriend, Calvin Harris, over the summer, according to the Hollywood Life. Harris’ beef with the bad boy coupled with his rumored disdain for One Direction may cause a rift between the two besties.
But Taylor has been cool with her friend breaking the girl code in the past. As stated before, Gigi was in a five-month relationship with Joe Jonas, who previously dated Taylor Swift when they were younger. Taylor proved that she was cool with their relationship by going on double dates. She even told Vanity Fair back in September, 2015, that her friendship with Gigi is more important that the guys that come and go in their life.
“We even have girls in our group who have dated the same people. It’s almost like the sisterhood has such a higher place on the list of priorities for us. It’s so much more important than some guy that it didn’t work out with.
“When you’ve got this group of girls who need each other as much as we need each other, in this climate, when it’s so hard for women to be understood and portrayed the right way in the media. Now more than ever we need to be good and kind to each other and not judge each other—and just because you have the same taste in men, we don’t hold that against each other.”
There’s one thing that Taylor Swift probably won’t do to Gigi Hadid and that’s spank her. The model recently got cheeky with her other BFF, Kylie Jenner. The girls were selected to present an award at the American Music Awards, but it’s their backstage antics that’s making headline news. In a Snapchat video shared by stylist Monica Rose that Sunday, the reality star told Hadid to “bend over,” then proceeded to spank her three times. Then the model got some revenge by spanking Jenner’s infamous butt.
The two girls were having a little too much fun at Hailey Baldwin’s birthday party. Gigi Hadid also shocked the world that night when she was seen with a shorter than usual hairstyle. Gone was Gigi’s luscious long blonde locks, when she hit the red carpet with a short bob.
