Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are taking some time apart yet again after a rough patch in their relationship. The couple has been on and off for several years.

Speculations regarding the couple’s split have been circulating for quite some time now, given that they were not seen together for a long time.

A source then told E! that the two “have been spending time apart since early November” and that they “think it’s best for the sake of their relationship right now.”

The source said the split came after a busy time in both their careers. They have “both been really focused on themselves and their separate careers.” Zayn has been “in the studio recording new music and pushing out his new album” and Hadid has been spending time on herself.

Hadid’s schedule did slow down after the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show but Malik was not in attendance at the event, which made fan speculation more intense.

A source said at the time, “Everything is going smoothly, they are just trying to keep it more under the radar. It’s no surprise that Zayn didn’t attend the VS show. He is not one for public outings, and usually skips out on going.”

Malik also does not follow Hadid on Instagram. But the Pillow Talk singer previously discarded rumors that that meant anything, telling GQ, “We’re adults. We don’t need to put a label on it, make it something for people’s expectations.”

Since splitting up with Zayn, Hadid “has been spending a lot of time with her family on Yolanda Hadid’s farm in Pennsylvania and in New York City being very low-key.”

The source added, “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. However, their relationship is always up and down.”

Before this split, the couple broke up in March after dating for two years but got back together soon after. At the time of the breakup, Malik said, “Gigi and I had an incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship. I have a huge amount of respect and adoration for Gigi as a woman and a friend. She has such an incredible soul.”
