Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik broke up in 2018

It’s been a minute since Hadid and Malik were together, as they announced their breakup in March 2018 but were seen kissing in New York in June 2018. A source told E! News at the time that they were “giving things a second chance.”

The second chance didn’t last long, however, when a source shared in January 2019 that they had been “spending time apart since early November.” The insider explained: “They are in different points in their lives right now and decided they needed the time to breathe apart from each other. They are still in touch and both hope that things will work out, but their relationship is always up and down.”

Did they get back together in the fall?

There was some buzz again about Hadid and Malik in the fall, after Hadid split from Bachelorette alum Tyler Cameron. A source shared with E! News in November 2019 that Hadid “has always had a soft spot for Zayn and they have a lot of history together.”

The insider added: “They went through a phase where they took time apart and weren’t communicating at all, but they have been in touch recently. She is supportive of him. They chat here and there, but it’s been casual.”

A source further shared that things seemed friendly but not romantic between the two, telling E! News: “They are definitely not getting back together, but are on good terms right now.”

Hadid drops a new clue that they might be dating again

It could be that the “good terms” has nothing to do with reconciliation, but fans think that Hadid’s Instagram Story she posted on Sunday is very revealing.

Hadid got up to some cooking and that happened to feature a recipe from none other than Malik’s mom. She tagged the singer’s mom, Trisha Malik, noting: “Sunday in the kitchen: about to marinate the chicken for one of my favorites!!! @mammamalik’s Chicken Curry Pasta Salad (Hopefully she’ll share the receipt with the world one day).”

Malik’s mom reposted the shoutout on her own Instagram Story and naturally that got fans wondering if something is up between Hadid and Malik.

Trisha also reposted a video from a Malik/Hadid fan account, in which Hadid was asked “What’s your favorite restaurant in the world?” and she responded, “My boyfriend’s mom’s house.” Malik’s mom tagged the model, writing: “@gigihadid hahaha.”

Fans are playing detective and are convinced these clues mean the couple is back together. One fan tweeted: “Gigi just posted a cooking pic tagging zayn’s mom & she reposted it… does this mean the return of zigi?”

Another fan celebrated the possibility of the couple reconciling, tweeting: Zayn is back with Gigi? Lol 2019 is ending happily for SOMEONE at least. #2019wrapped.”
