And now, the singer has seemingly hit out at their relationship, and hinted that it was difficult.
Speaking about the lyrics in his breakout solo single, Pillowtalk, the 24 year old admitted the “war zone” is “a metaphor for different things”.
He explained: “Love hurts. Love is hard. Maybe my experiences of love up to writing that album were new and hard.”
Zayn continued: “I think there’s a strength in expressing emotion.

“If you were a guy, you used to have to be really masculine, but now expressing emotion is accepted and respected.”
Now, Harry Styles‘ former bandmate is happily in a relationship with model Gigi Hadid, and admitted she’s moved into his Bel-Air mansion with him.
He told The Sunday Times: “Gigi’s been living with me this past year,” before revealing that she’s yet to visit his native Bradford.
“I’ve never took her to Bradford, not yet. She’s met my family in London a few times, though.”
