Us Magazine broke the news, reporting that the pair are hanging out casually: “It’s a very new thing. They’re just seeing where it goes,” a source told Us. “I wouldn’t call them boyfriend and girlfriend,” another source added. “But seeing each other? Definitely. He’s chuffed.”
Us also notes that the pair were seen “getting cozy” while partying in West Hollywood on Sunday night after the American Music Awards. Oh, and apparently Zayn picked her up from the AMAs, which fueled the rumors even further.
No confirmation from Hadid or Malik yet (i.e., neither PYT has Instagrammed a photo of the other yet), but the relationship rumor would fit in line with Hadid’s preference for musical boyfriends. The speculation comes just two weeks after Hadid was rumored to split from pop star Joe Jonas after a short five months of dating, aka red-carpeting together—a romance she struck up after splitting from Aussie heartthrob singer Cody Simpson.
On his part, last summer Malik called off his engagement to British pop star Perrie Edwards of the band Little Mix. Even if the Gigi buzz isn’t true, we kind of think it should be: They’d make one hot couple, no?
