Photos circling the internet showed the model, 24, and Malik walking arm in arm into the Mediterranean-Italian restaurant il Buco in NY. The two were accompanied by Gigi’s sister Bella Hadid and pop star Dua Lipa. The “Pillowtalk” singer and model color-coordinated their outfits with matching light green jackets.
Malik and Gigi initially sparked rumors that they were back together again after the supermodel tagged Malik’s mom, Tricia Brannan Malik, in an Instagram post in December 2019. “Sunday in the kitchen: about to marinate the chicken for one of my favorites!!! @mammamlike’s Chicken Curry Pasta Salad,” the model wrote. “Hopefully she’ll share the recipe with the world one day.”
In November 2019, a source told Us Weekly that while Zayn and Gigi had resumed their friendship, they weren’t however, looking to rekindle their romance. “Gigi and Zayn are still speaking but they aren’t getting back together—it’s way too stressful for her,” the source said at the time.
The insider continued, “She still has some lingering feelings for him sure, but she won’t go through getting back together with him. She’s already tried. They were spending more time together before the Tyler Cameron relationship. Her family wants her to be happy and they know he’s not the one for her either.”
Malik and Gigi started dating in November 2015 but by March 2018 they had announced to their fans that they had broken up. However, less than two months later, the two were spotted getting cozy in NYC.
By January 2019, the couple had split yet again. At the time, a source told Us that Gigi “tried hard to make it work” but Malik had “a lot of his own issues that she couldn’t help him get through.”
Gigi dated Bachelorette alum Tyler, 26, in August 2019 but the relationship was brief, ending two months later. Zayn has yet to publicly date anyone new.
