The singer and model have broken up after more than two years of dating, Malik confirmed Tuesday on Twitter.
This split will no doubt have a profound effect on their mutual fans who made it their personal mission to "ship" these two on a regular basis. The post served as a joint statement of sorts, and - despite the sad nature of the news - was nothing but respectful and loving.
As any millennial might, Malik has also unfollowed Hadid, as well as her mother, Yolanda, on Instagram (though photos of him with both women remain).
"I'm grateful to all of our fans for respecting this hard decision and our privacy at this time" Malik said. "We love you all. xZ". "Love this man more than I could ever put into words, & am inspired by his drive to be and do better every day", she wrote.
The source went on to add, "They have insane work schedules that would put pressure on any relationship".

Butler's arrival will push Ryan into a pure slot cornerback role, which has become as important as a left tackle in today's NFL . Last year Butler was upset he didn't get Stephon Gilmore-like money from the Patriots, but this is pretty close.
The stylish couple's last Instagram post together was from Malik's birthday on January 12. "She's in the studio quite a lot", he said.
While fans have varying speculations surrounding the reason behind the pair's breakup, it seems just about everyone can agree on one thing: Zayn should probably stop getting tattoos of his girlfriends' body parts.
Previously, Malik went through a public break-up with Little Mix star Perrie Edwards. "She likes to cook for me and stuff". She wished him a happy 25th birthday and confessed that how much she loves him. "I'm proud to be your side x", the supermodel wrote.
They posed together on the front of Vogue Magazine for the August 2017 edition.
