Love continues to die in Hollywood and we're not quite sure how to feel anymore. After Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux split in February, we picked ourselves up and moved on yet again. However, we never EVER thought Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik were going to be the next Hollywood power couple to call it quits. The Sun was the first to report that the couple of two years had officially split, and though it seemingly came from out of nowhere, both Gigi and Zayn later confirmed the news.

“Gigi and I had an incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship and I have a huge amount of respect and adoration for Gigi as a woman and a friend,” the former One Direction singer tweeted. “I'm grateful to all of our fans for respecting this difficult decision and our privacy at this time, we wish this news could have come from us first. We love you all. xZ.”

Soon after Zayn shared his statement, Gigi also addressed the breakup via Twitter.

“Breakup statements often seem impersonal because there is really no way to put into words what two people experience together over a few years .. not only in the relationship, but in life in general, ” she wrote. “I'm forever grateful for the love, time and life lessons that Z and I shared. I want nothing but the best for him and will continue to support him as a friend that I have immense respect and love for. As for the future, whatever's meant to be will always be. xG”

We seriously thought these two had what it takes to last. We're hoping they can both stay friends like they said in their statements, but it should be noted that Zayn unfollowed Gigi on Instagram, along with the rest of her family, including Bella, Anwar and Yolanda Hadid.

However, that's not all Zayn did to suggest he's not taking the break up very well. He also posted a shirtless photo on Instagram, alongside a pretty sour message. “When Life throws you lemons, catch em so they don’t hit you in the f*cking face,” he wrote.

Though The Sun reports the split was due to their crazy work schedules, according to Zayn's recent Instagram activity, we probably should have seen their split coming. Over the last couple of weeks, he's been posting poems, videos of himself singing sad ballads, and selfies – lots and lots of them. Fans unknowingly thought the poems and videos were just teasers for his upcoming album, but it turns out, we may have been wrong.

Gigi also hasn't made an appearance on his account for a while now and neither has Zayn on hers. The last time Zayn posted a photo was when they dressed up together for Halloween. Gigi also shared a sweet post on Zayn's 25th birthday in January, but it ends there.

When they're ready to discuss what happened, they will.
