Selena Gomez has seemingly ended her rumored romance with Zayn Malik, as she quietly unfollowed his Instagram account. Fans noticed this change today, pointing out that Malik is no longer on Gomez’s follower list, although she remains on his. Additionally, Gomez unfollowed Malik’s ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid and Hadid’s sisters, Bella Hadid, Dua Lipa, and Zendaya.
Speculations about Gomez and Malik dating began after they were spotted “kissing” in New York City on March 23. An insider confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that they went on a date in SoHo, holding hands and showing affection. However, no further public sightings or photographs of them as a couple existed.
Gomez has spent the past two months in Paris and recently clarified on her TikTok that she is currently single. However, she jokingly added that she is “a little high maintenance” but still open to meeting new people, including soccer players in Paris.
Neither Gomez nor Malik explicitly addressed the dating rumors surrounding them. In late March, a source told Us Weekly that Gigi Hadid, Malik’s ex-girlfriend, and mother of his daughter Khai, had no issue with Gomez and Malik dating. The source stated that if Malik is happy, stable, and maintains a good co-parenting relationship with Khai, Hadid supports whoever he chooses to date.
It’s worth mentioning that Gigi Hadid is reportedly involved in a casual relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio, described as a friendly and no-strings-attached “situation.”
As of now, Gomez’s decision to unfollow Malik and others on Instagram suggests a potential end to their rumored romance, although neither party has made an official statement regarding the matter. Fans will likely continue to speculate on the status of their relationship until further updates emerge.
