Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid have confirmed their relationship with a cute couple selfie.
The former One Direction singer (22) shared the black and white snap, in which supermodel Gigi (20) can be seen caressing his face, to Instagram on Sunday.
The loved-up pair has been dating since November, shortly after Gigi's split with singer Joe Jonas, and just three months after Zayn reportedly ditched Little Mix singer and fiancee Perrie Edwards (22) by text.
They were first spotted together following Justin Bieber's AMA after party and Zayn reportedly fell for the model when he watched her stroll down the catwalk at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in November.
The snap (posted by Zayn to his Instagram account) comes just days after Perri was snapped walking arm-in-arm with nightclub promoter Leon King at the Winter Wonderland event in London.
“They looked very cosy as they walked around," an insider told Britain's The Sun newspaper. “Perrie and Leon linked arms and looked closer than friends.
“It was just the two of them, other than Perrie’s security guards, who kept a close eye on them as they mingled with the public. She is due some happiness after what happened with Zayn. Hopefully Leon can give her that.”
Meanwhile, Zayn has come under fire from Simon Cowell, who branded his comments about One Direction's music as "rude".
In an interview with The Fader earlier this year Zayn described the band's music as "generic".
"I think once he has had a chance to reflect on everything he will probably reconsider what he’s said because it was a very, very democratic process in the band," said Cowell.
"It is a bit rude to the people who wrote all the hits with them. And to the other band members. I mean they all wrote a lot of the stuff."
