So THIS is apparently why Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik temporarily broke up

Whaa??

After Gigi Hadid confirmed that she and Zayn Malik were back together this week using a combination of personalised Nutella jars and uber-supportive tweets about his recent anxiety attacks, we can’t help but wonder what made the two even think about splitting to begin with. I mean, any couple that uses Nutella to make such important statements has got to be perfect, right?

Well, apparently there’s a bit more to the story than what they’ve been letting on. A source told People magazine that before the split the couple, "were fighting all the time and Gigi caught Zayn in a handful of lies and couldn't take the mystery anymore, so she dumped him."

They don’t elaborate on what kind of lies, but either way, it doesn’t sound too good. The source goes on to say that the break up didn’t last long because Zayn, "kept incessantly apologising and wanted another chance." The fact they’re back together and as loved-up as ever means Gigi must have forgiven him for whatever it was he was keeping on the DL, and we hope things stay that way.

"Gigi gave it to him, and now he's determined to prove himself to her," adds the source. "They have been working on their communication and being honest with each other and so far things are great."

But it sounds like Gigi ain’t gonna wait around for Zayn if he falls back into the same habits (‘cause ain’t nobody got time for ‘dem secrets). "Everything's good at the moment, but things could change overnight,” said the source. “Zayn is really going to need to continue to prove himself to her. Otherwise, she may not stick around."

No pressure then, Zayn.
