Gigi and Joe broke up at the beginning of November after they spent five months together, and just a few weeks later, Gigi was seen in public holding hands with ex 1D band member Zayn Malik.
According to the E! News source, Jonas is still working through lingering feelings resulting from the breakup, but he’s ready to move on.
“Joe is doing well. He was a bit upset how fast Gigi went out in public with Zayn, but it is what it is at this point.”
The source reported that in order to move on, the 26-year-old musician has thrown himself into his work while choosing to lean on his close family and friends. E! News’ source said that Joe Jonas knows that it could take a while to get over his supermodel ex-girlfriend, but he’s working on it.
“He still has feelings for Gigi that won’t just disappear overnight. They did love each other and he still has a love for Gigi. He is not looking to rush into another relationship though just yet. He is focusing on his music and new projects that are in the works. He has some great friends and family around so, like anything, he knows his feelings for Gigi will pass with time.”
The source added that Jonas could have his pick of women, but he’s rather picky when it comes to dating, so he’s not ready to jump back into a relationship just yet.
Meanwhile, E! News reports that Gigi’s friends are also somewhat concerned with her quick jump from Jonas to Malik. According to the website’s source, Malik and Jonas are similar in many ways, though Malik has more of an “edge.”
“Gigi does very well like Zayn. Zayn is very different than Joe, but shares some similarities as well. Zayn has an edge that Gigi likes.… Her friends think he has a bit of a bad boy attitude, so [they] want her to be careful. Gigi is a relationship girl and likes the company of a guy.”
Relationship aside, Gigi and Zayn have both made news headlines lately. For Zayn, it’s Headlines about the 22-year-old slamming music made by his former One Direction band mates — and a subsequent kick to the head from Harry Styles — have made the rounds within the past few days.
