We have to admit, our hearts were broken when we heard the news that Gigi Hadid and Cody Simpson had officially broken up after roughly a year of dating. According to a source for Just Jared Jr., Yolanda Foster’s daughter and her popstar beau called off their relationship late last week.
“They’ve been on and off trying to make it work, but their schedules have made it quite difficult,” the source revealed. “They agreed that things were finally over on Thursday.”
We won’t say we’re not surprised by the news, especially considering the fact that Gigi had just starred in a steamy music video for Cody’s latest single, “Surfboard.” Just five days before the split, the couple looked more in love than ever while walking the red carpet at the Radio Disney Music Awards in L.A.
All that said, we’re happy to hear that the breakup was amicable and that the duo plan to remain the best of friends. In fact, on Monday, May 5, Gigi took to Twitter to share a text image addressing the split, along with a sweet message of her own.
Gigi certainly seems to be handling the split with maturity and grace, as evidenced by her positive attitude while out in NYC. The 19-year-old model was all smiles just one day after the breakup while hailing a cab with friends.
