cnn.com: Cue the crying face emojis: Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid have called it quits.
Malik, a pop star who broke up with One Direction in 2015, and Hadid, a model and Taylor Swift squad member, announced their break up Tuesday. They'd dated for more than two years and one Vogue cover.
The news may be as the biggest break up in social-media history, if you ask your teenagers.
"ZiGi," as the couple's 66 million Instagram followers and 35 million Twitter followers affectionately call them, asked for privacy in their statements announcing their split.
"I'm grateful to all of our fans for respecting this difficult decision and our privacy at this time" Malik said. Hadid implied the split was amicable. Considering the young fan base that worships the pop culture real estate the pair occupies, the news quickly sent social media into a meltdown of feels.
