Fans were shocked when Cody and Gigi split after one year of dating. But Cody was positively gushing over his ‘beautiful’ girlfriend when HollywoodLife.com spoke EXCLUSIVELY with him a little over a week ago at the Radio Disney Music Awards on April 26. So what went wrong? Is it possible that Gigi could have dumped her doting boyfriend? Here’s what we know.
Cody Simpson, 17, recently told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY about all of the sweet ways that he showed his now ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid, 19, how much he loved her. Which is exactly why we were so surprised when news broke on May 5 that the seemingly happy young couple had split. We know one thing for sure — Cody must be heartbroken right now!
Cody Simpson Split With Gigi Hadid — Did He Get Dumped By Her?
Cody and model Gigi may have seemed like the perfect couple before their split but even the best of relationships have their ups and downs. At the RDMAs on April 26, we grilled the sexy Australian pop star about how he made amends with his former lady love when they were on the outs and he passed our test with flying colors!
“I write songs, I write poems and take her to Nobu [restaurant], stuff like that. But mostly songs,” Cody told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY at the time.
And while most men only spring for one bouquet of flowers on a special occasion, Cody gave Gigi SIX DOZEN roses for their six month anniversary!
“When I had known her for six months, I sent her six dozen roses, which makes me wonder what I will do when I know her for 12. But I send her roses kind of regularly,” Cody revealed. “It is important to express to a woman the way you feel, both positively and negatively. But she is such a beautiful person and she is my best mate! So it’s all good.”
How romantic! Cody sounded so happy and in love just days ago so we can’t really picture him ending things with Gigi so suddenly. Perhaps she was the one to call off their relationship — poor Cody!
Cody Simpson & Gigi Hadid — Couple Break Up
Cody’s rep confirmed the couple’s split to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY on May 5.
“It’s true that on Thursday [May 1] the two amicably split up after nearly a year together,” Cody’s rep tells HollywoodLife.com. “Their busy schedules and living on opposite coasts have made it nearly impossible for the two of them to give the relationship the attention that it needs. They decided that rather than let things sour that they [would] split up in hopes that their lives might someday bring them back together. They remain close friends and will continue to show their support for one and other.”
How heartbreaking! This must be hard on both Cody and Gigi but we hope they they will eventually reunite.
So HollywoodLifers, are YOU sad about Cody and Gigi’s split? Let us know!
