As we all know, Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have been dating for almost a year now – however, just months prior to their relationship going public, Zayn was engaged to Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards and Gigi was in a serious relationship with Joe Jonas.

Although we’ve only ever heard good things from Zayn about Perrie post-breakup, it seems that Gigi might have other ideas…

She spoke to ES Magazine about what attracted her to Zayn the most, to which she stated:

“I would say his brain. For the first time, we are both in a relationship where we have very similar interests outside of work and that is really important.

We cook a lot together and do art together and we’re each other’s best friends. We both feel we can talk about anything and learn a lot from one another.”

So, was she saying that Zayn and Perrie had nothing in common apart from being in the spotlight? And the same about her and Joe?

Since the supermodel and ex-One Direction singer tend to keep their relationship pretty private compared to other star-studded couples, this was quite the curveball statement that no-one would expect from her.

Of course, it could have been just a passing comment that we’re all over-analysing – but who knows: had Gigi gone rogue? We’ll let you decide…
