Cody Simspon Says Gigi Hadid Breakup ‘Freed Up Space for Me to Actually Be Myself’

Cody Simpson is opening up about his split from Gigi Hadid.

In May, it was announced that 18-year-old Simpson and 20-year-old Hadid had broken up for the second time. Weeks later, Hadid was spotted spending time with Joe Jonas, who she’s now reportedly “hooking up” with.

So, how does Simpson feel about the split? It was rumored that Simpson was “drunk dialing” Hadid, wanting to give the relationship another chance. But, it sounds like things have changed.

Simpson just spoke to E! News about the split and it sounds like he’s doing okay on his own. “I’m 18 years old, and I’m sort of going through that time in my life where I’m like a different person every week,” Simpson revealed. “You know, when you’re going through the phases of being young and discovering yourself and uncovering all the layers, basically. Being by myself has just freed up space for me to actually be myself as opposite to half of somebody else.”

The “Surfboard” singer went on to say that single life is “rad.”
