Gigi Hadid just recently broke up with Tyler Cameron

Hadid broke up with Cameron in early October. The supermodel dated The Bachelorette contestant for about two months. Right now, it is unknown why the duo broke up.

An Us Weekly source told the magazine that “Tyler is single. He and Gigi Hadid are no longer together.” The magazine also reported that Hadid tried to keep their relationship out of the spotlight. For example, Gigi took her sister, Bella, to the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards instead of Cameron. However, Cameron did show up at the afterparty where they danced.

They never publicly confirmed their relationship. In September, Cameron claimed they were just friends. “I mean…that’s just where we’re at. Our relationship doesn’t need to be public. She’s good people, she’s an amazing person, and we’re just keeping it friendly,” he said.

Is Gigi Hadid friends with ex-boyfriend Zayn Malik?

Neither Hadid or Malik have revealed much about their relationship with each other lately. However, back in March, rumors began to swirl after Malik tweeted “@GiGiHadid love you.”

Right after that, it was reported that Hadid and Malik, were in fact, not getting back together. But, the two still talk and seem to be friendly.

“Gigi and Zayn still talk. She still has feelings for him, of course, but he has major issues and she knows they aren’t compatible. She’s still very single,” an insider told Us Weekly.

Why can’t Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik stay together?

There are alleged issues that keep Hadid and Malik from being a permanent couple. When they broke up in January 2019, sources told Us Weekly that “tried hard to make it work,” but Malik had “a lot of his own issues that she couldn’t help him get through.” The source also said that Hadid “cut herself off from all her friends every time they were together. She focused all her time and energy on him, but it just got to be too much.”

Hadid and Malik have a history of being on and off. After dating for two years, they first broke up in March 2018. They then got back together again, before splitting up again in January of the next year.

With Malik putting out new music now, it seems plausible that an upcoming track from the singer may allude to his relationship with Hadid.
