Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik took to Instagram to announce that they are back together; the model posted a picture of herself on the singer’s lap. The couple can be seen playing Pokémon in the photo.
The couple started dating each other in November 2015, but broke up in March 2018 after being together for more than two and a half years. In April, they were seen making out in the streets of New York but neither of them confirmed or denied if they were back together. Now, however, Hadid has let on that the two are very much back in each other’s life with the latest post on her Instagram story.
Last night, Hadid was at the Ocean’s Eight premiere in a black dress with a thigh high slit. She paired the look with a small black bag and black strappy heels. She left her hair loose with waves framing her face.
After the premiere, Hadid took to her Instagram story to post a picture that left the Internet in a meltdown. In the photo, Hadid was still in her premiere outfit, lying in the arms of a blond tattooed guy who could be seen kissing her on the cheek. The photo read, “After party like making it rain pokemon cards.”
The blond haired and tattooed guy was instantly recognized as Zayn Malik. To further prove that he spent the night with Hadid, Malik also uploaded an Instagram story of Pokemon cards, though the 23-year-old model was missing from the picture.
Fans of the couple immediately went haywire over the posts and took to social media to share their excitement.

The couple confirmed their break up via social media in March 2018. Zayn took to Twitter to write a note explaining the situation and also apologized for letting media speculation dominate the situation.
He wrote, “Gigi and I had an incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship and I have a huge amount of respect and adoration for Gigi as a woman and a friend. She has such an incredible soul. I’m grateful to all of our fans for respecting this difficult decision and our privacy at this time, we wish this news could have come from us first. We love you all. xZ”
Similarly, Gigi took to her Twitter to write, “Breakup statements often seem impersonal because there is really no way to put into words what two people experience together over a few years .. not only in the relationship, but in life in general. I’m forever grateful for the love, time, and life lessons that Z and I shared. I want nothing but the best for him and will continue to support him as a friend that I have immense respect and love for. As for the future, whatever’s meant to be will always be. xG”
Hadid recently attended the CFDA Fashion Awards wearing a rainbow jumpsuit from Versace this week.
