Out of sight, out of mind! Zayn Malik has now unfollowed ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid on Instagram after rumours of the supermodel dating Hollywood A-lister Leonardo DiCaprio started brimming. Hadid and DiCaprio have also been photographed together at events and it seems like the whispers aren’t far from the truth.
The former One Direction band member is no more among Hadid’s 75.7 million followers on the photo-sharing app. However, unfollowing is a one-way street for now. The model is still following Zayn, reported Elle.
The There You Are crooner unfollowed her shortly after she was papped getting cosy with the Titanic star at a party in New York City, which originally sparked romance rumours. Following the intimate sighting, an insider told Hollywood Life that the Dusk Till Dawn singer wants to win Hadid back and that “all of this news about her and Leo has been upsetting for him.”
The said source also commented on Hadid having to deal with the “drama” stirring up on Zayn’s end. “Gigi is doing her best to manage it all, but it’s definitely stirring up drama on Zayn’s side that she’s having to deal with.”
Previously, in photos obtained by Daily Mail, the actor and the 27-year-old supermodel could be seen leaning in close together as they tried to chat in the midst of the loud party, which reportedly was thrown at Casa Cipriani by the 47-year-old Oscar-winning star’s friends Richie Akiva and Darren Dzienciol in Manhattan’s Soho neighbourhood on September 10.
Zayn and Hadid dated on and off from 2015 to 2021 and finally called it quits earlier this year after the singer got into a physical altercation with the model’s mom Yolanda Hadid. Malik pleaded no contest to the other three. He was on 90 days probation for each count, totalling 360 days, on a condition to be terminated if his behaviour was appropriate in six months.
He was also ordered to complete an anger management class and a domestic violence program. The former couple is parents to daughter Khai, who turned two years old this month.
