The couple has dated on and off for years, and their relationship has weathered a few storms.

But, from the outside looking in, things between the singer and super model seemed to be going swimmingly.

The couple welcomed their first child together in September 2020 and celebrated her first birthday this year.

However, things took a nasty turn in October when Zayn and Gigi’s mom, Yolanda Hadid, got into a physical altercation.

According to TMZ, the former One Direction singer “struck” her during an argument at Zayn and Gigi’s east coast home.

Back in September, Yolanda reportedly showed up to the home unannounced while Gigi was away on business and Zayn was watching their daughter, Khai, solo.

The two exchanged some words, which included Z calling Yolanda a “Dutch slut,” and an altercation ensued.

Zayn was given two harassment charges involving Yolanda, one charge for harassing Gigi over the phone and another charge involving a security guard, John McMahon, whom he attempted to “physically engage in a fight,” per the court documents.

Zayn has plead no contest to all of the charges, but he will have to serve 90 days probation for each count.

Gigi called it quits with Zayn soon after the altercation in October.

Another young couple who called off their love affair was Jacob Elordi and Kaia Gerber.

The “Euphoria” star and supermodel began dating last year with romance rumors swirling around September 2020.

A source exclusively told Page Six, the couple’s relationship is over.

Fortunately, the split was “amicable,” according to the source.

She still follows Jacob on Instagram and he still follows her.

Prior to their breakup, the two seemed to be living life on cloud 9. Kaia spoke highly of her former boyfriend in an interview with Vogue in May.

The supermodel said, “Being able to be with someone I trust, where we don’t want anything from each other, having a safe, steady relationship like that, has really opened my eyes to the possibilities of love and what it feels like to love without conditions.”

Jacob and Kaia were basically living together this year in his Hollywood Hills home. The supermodel split her time between Hollywood and her parent’s Malibu mansion.

This final breakup really hit fans in the gut.

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello, aka ‘ShawMila,’ called off their relationship after two years of dating and living together for over a year during lockdown.

They too split up in November, but unlike Jacob and Kaia, the former couple released a joint statement.

“Hey guys we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship but our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever. We started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends.”

The statement concluded with appreciation for fans’ overwhelming love and support.

The shocking split comes more than two years after the pair began dating.

Shawn and Camila’s romance first made headlines in 2019, and the release of their joint hit song, “Senorita,” only fueled the romance rumors. However, the pair initially denied the speculations, making fans think it as a publicity stunt.

However, several countless PDA moments captured by the paparazzi said otherwise. Finally, at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2019, the pair made their first red carpet debut as a couple.
