Is Zayn Malik's Instagram Caption About Gigi Hadid? Breakup Rumors Are Making Fans Freak


Maybe by now you've heard the rumor that Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik broke up. If you haven't, I'm sorry to be the one to tell you. According to a report by The Sun, the famous young couple has officially called it quits after two years of dating. Malik is still active on social media and fans have a question: Is Zayn Malik's latest Instagram caption about Gigi Hadid? Like, probably. Elite Daily reached out to both Hadid's and Malik's teams for comment and confirmation of the report, but did not hear back by the time of publication. Neither party has confirmed or denied the news, either.

UPDATE: On Tuesday, March 13, Zayn Malik confirmed his breakup with Gigi Hadid in an emotional statement on Twitter. He wrote,

On the same day, Gigi Hadid shared the following statement:

EARLIER: While nothing is official, social media can always help uncover clues. For example, as of March 13, Malik no longer follows Hadid on Instagram. She does, however, still follow him. Shortly after The Sun's report hit the public, Malik posted a suspicious caption next to a selfie showing off a chest tattoo fans think is of Hadid's eyes. It definitely peaked fans' attention.

The Instagram caption in question is, "When Life throws you lemons , catch em so they don’t hit you in the f*cking face."


All of the pieces to a breakup post are clearly there.

For example, is he showing off his body, maybe in hopes to make someone feel jealous? I think so. Is his face moody and distant, like he's pretending he doesn't care? I think so. Is there a mysterious cryptic caption that could almost definitely relate to a breakup? I THINK SO. Is he showing off a tattoo of his ex-girlfriend's literal eyeballs? YES, I THINK SO.

Gee, Zayn. Seems like you might be going through something.

Only a few short months ago Hadid shared one of the loveliest birthday messages to Malik on her own Instagram. She posted a bunch of intimate photos and videos from their relationship with the message:

However, sources tell The Sun "work pressures" ultimately drew them apart. One insider said,

Well, that sucks.

The insider added it was a mutual breakup, but I don't know if it makes me feel any better. The source claimed,

Ok, but have they considered how TOTALLY LOVELY they look standing side by side?

You can't just throw symmetry like that away, guys!

Obviously, fans are devastated.

While I can totally understand the demanding schedules of being a literal supermodel and pop star, Malik once told Billboard magazine he and Hadid had it under control. He said,

She's cool, Zayn? COOL???

Ugh. Maybe I should have seen this coming.
