Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik Confirm Dating Rumors by Holding Hands

Zigi has risen.

Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid, rumored to be dating ever since he was spotted picking her up after Justin Bieber’s American Music Awards afterparty at The Nice Guy, are no longer a “rumored” couple.

They made it official over the holiday weekend by grasping hands for all the paparazzi to see.

Hadid and Malik really are taking their couples-status to a new level: they wore matching black and grey outfits, with Gigi in a black crop top that exposed her midriff.

The hot young couple left The Nice Guy around 2:30 a.m. on Nov. 29, the same establishment where everything started post-AMAs, as well as the where they were spotted together just a few nights earlier on Nov. 24.

We get the feeling they really like frequenting the L.A. hot spot…and now that they’re hand-in-hand, their relationship is pretty convincing.

Earlier that Tuesday last week, fans freaked when Zayn tweeted a photo of him wearing Hadid’s glasses:

Cheers to the happy new couple!

Meanwhile, Gigi’s former boyfriend of five months Joe Jonas, who she just split from earlier this month, has allegedly unfollowed both Hadid and the former One Direction band member on Instagram.

In addition, Jonas and Malik were photographed together at a couple of Paris Fashion Week shows back in June. Daily Mail reports that fans noticed Jonas has also deleted a photo of them with Kanye West from his Twitter timeline, originally captioned “#SQUAD.”

Their love certainly is dead.
