Last year he defended Gigi after fans accused her of being racist towards Asians in a video posted on Snapchat. After being questioned by fans about the video, Zayn replied to one saying: “Trust me… she likes Asians ;)”.
Now their millions of fans have to start digesting the news that their relationship is over.
