Christmas is one of those highly emotional times that can kinda make or break a relationship. Your feed is full of celebs or IRL people getting engaged or married (oh hi, Miley and Liam!), but the festive season can be rough for others, with some choosing to quietly break up instead (hello, Dylan and Britt). And it seems we might be adding cuties Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid to that less-than-desirable bust-up list.

Gigi Hadid Zayn Malik

They’ve been together seven months since their first split, but eagle-eyed fans reckon there’s once again some trouble in paradise.

The pair’s Instagram followers have noticed that while they usually spend the holiday period together and feature on one another’s stories, Gigi’s only acknowledgement of Xmas was a throwback pic of her with mum Yolanda and sister Bella Hadid, with Zayn nowhere to be seen on her account.

In fact, the Daily Mail notes that the last time the couple were seen on social media together was October 21, when Gigi posted “Flyin home to my happy place” with a snuggly pic of the pair.

Now you may think this is just reading wayyyy too into some harmless facts, but if you take a look through Gigi’s 45.3 million followers, ex-1D member Zayn is not one of them. Yep, he’s straight up unfollowed her.

Gigi still follows him though, and even liked his most recent post on December 16, which I like to call “taking the high road”.

While the pair are yet to comment on the latest round of rumours, we’ll keep you posted.
