When you are overly talented, successful in your craft and a total hunk, a lot of things fall at your feet, including the beautiful women; that’s something English singer and songwriter Zayn Malik would attest to.
The former One Direction member left a trail of heartbroken fans when his much-publicised relationship with American model Gigi Hadid hit the rock. While some felt they would miss the power couple who never turned down an opportunity to treat fans to some loved-up moments and PDAs, others were more concerned about the tattoo of Gigi’s beautiful eyes which Malik supposedly inked on his chest before their epic breakup.
Who Has Zayn Malik Dated or Married?
While Zayn Malik has dated a lot of gorgeous women, he has not taken any of them to the altar and has not been married before but he did get engaged once. Read on for a precise list of all the women who have been romantically linked to the Pillowtalk muso. Some of these relationships ended in the most amicable way with both parties wishing each other well while some came to an end amid social media brawl. From the rumored to the actual love interests, below is everything you need to know about Zayn’s past and present girlfriends.
Geneva Lane (2010 – 2011)
Admittedly, Zayn didn’t just find fame on The X Factor, he also found love in the arms of fellow finalist Geneva Lane. Their romance may have lasted a few months before they went their separate ways but it appears the split was far from amicable. The drama between the two unfolded later in 2015 after the epic breakup between the former One Direction star and Little Mix member Perrie Edwards – an agitated Geneva dragged Zayn through the streets of Twitter, using words we can’t begin to explain.
Rebecca Ferguson (2011)
Notwithstanding the six-year gap between them, Zayn dated the mother of two for four months after ending things with Geneva in 2011. Ferguson who was also a contestant on The X Factor said she got tired of having to foot the bills for most of their dates as a couple which came at a time Zayn was still building his career. Well, look who has all the money for fancy dates now…Zayn Malik.
Stephanie Davis (2011)
2011 was a very busy year for the boyband sweetheart, he got into another romance with English actress Stephanie Davis, hot on the heels of his Rebecca Ferguson split. Though it was shortlived, their affair is said to have ended on peaceful terms. However, they don’t seem to be friendly much and don’t keep in touch.
Perrie Edwards (2013 – 2015)
Zayn Malik and the Little Mix star Perrie Edwards were a lovable item and served relationship goals during their romance which lasted longer than his other hookups. They were so in love and Zayn was really caught up in it that he went ahead to put a ring on it. Nevertheless, cupid’s arrow couldn’t sustain their engagement as Zayn broke up with Perrie in 2015, shattering many hearts in the process. This came after the announcement of his exit from One Direction.
Carlyn Bryan (Rumoured)
Not long after breaking off his engagement with Perrie, Zayn Malik sparked dating rumors by sharing a picture of him getting cozy with a mystery blonde which was later discovered to be a PR girl from Los Angeles named Carlyn Bryan.
Gigi Hadid (2015 – 2018)
Zayn’s longest and most recent relationship was with model Gigi Hadid and it started after his breakup with Perrie Edwards. Forget his other hookups, Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid were the bombs as a power couple. She did not just make an appearance on his music video for Pillowtalk, the singer also inked what looks like Hadid’s pretty eyes on his chest.
Sadly, trouble hit their fairyland early in 2018 when they both took turns to make their breakup social media official. If the official statements they released are anything to go by, it was an amicable split with no hard feelings.
While we are still reeling from the shock of one of the heartbreaking splits in 2018, we are not ruling out the possibility of a makeup.
