Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid finally confirmed that they were at the very least dating on Sunday night, when they were papped stepping out of a restaurant holding hands following days of speculation about their lurve life.
Now, Gigi has hit out at the haters, defending her and the former One Direction starâ€™s relationship in a now-deleted tweet.
Taking to her social media channel, the 20-year-old model wrote: â€œSometimes life happens. For whatever reason in whatever timing. And sometimes it doesnâ€™t make sense till it does. Thatâ€™s it.
â€œIf there was a real way to sit with each one of you and tell you my side of things, I would. But thereâ€™s not, so I wonâ€™t. Iâ€™ve found the only way to happiness is by living as though the microscope isnâ€™t there.â€
Gigi then reportedly responded to a fan who branded â€˜Zigiâ€™ fake, with the user writing: â€œYou want the public to consume and believe your fake [relationship] – but donâ€™t want to be judged for it? Lol doesnâ€™t work that way.â€
The star replied: â€œWho are you to say what is fake? Your comment proves my point exactly. If you donâ€™t know you donâ€™t know.â€
Gigi then deleted all of the posts referencing her new relationship and instead posted a picture that read: â€œChillâ€.
The tweets come after Gigiâ€™s ex, Joe Jonas, unfollowed her and Zayn on Twitter, also deleting a photo of himself with the 1D star from his Instagram account.
Zayn, on the other hand, has continued to ignore the speculation – instead opting to post some sexy selfies.
