Zayn Malik & Gigi Hadid Spend Time Together Following His Canceled Concert & It's A Show Of Support
When it comes to celebrity couples, Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid rank near the top of the list. Did you see their summer spread in Vogue? The couple took the most gorgeous photos in Naples. Beyond that, their relationship is more than skin deep — especially based on this recent news. According to People, Malik flew to NYC to be with Hadid during NYFW on Saturday. This happened just a few days after he canceled an upcoming concert in Dubai, citing his "extreme anxiety" as the reason. The fact that he and Hadid are there for one another during the hard times — and the celebratory ones — shows their relationship is filled with support.
When canceling his concert, Malik wrote a message to fans through the ticket site 117Live. People reported that he wrote,
Dear fans, I have been working over the last three months to overcome my extreme anxiety around major live solo performances. I feel I am making progress but I have today acknowledged that I do not feel sufficiently confident to move forward with the planned show in Dubai in October.
While people may sometimes diss him for leaving One Direction, this proves it hasn't been the easiest journey. This also isn't the first time Malik canceled a show. Back in June, he tweeted to his U.K. fans about not being able to perform due to anxiety. And unsurprisingly, Hadid had his back that time too. She tweeted her support for her boyfriend and commended his bravery. You can read her full message below.
All in all, this says a lot about who Malik and Hadid are as people. Although the "Pillowtalk" singer has his mental health struggles, he doesn't shy away from sharing that with fans. And in talking about his anxiety, he hopefully opens the door for others to feel less alone.
Meanwhile, the fact that Hadid has his back — both via Twitter and IRL — shows that they're open to discussing their emotions and helping one another when they're down. Malik is equally supportive of what's going on in her life too. For example, he tweeted how excited he was about Hadid's Tommy Hilfiger show.
Now, aren't you convinced that these two are relationship goals? And no, not just for surface level reasons. Their connection runs deep.
