After calling it quits for the second time with Cody Simpson, Gigi Hadid is making the most of her time now that she’s a single lady. No, not by playing the field, but by taking care of her sick mom, Yolanda Foster. Atta girl!
When Gigi Hadid, 20, and Cody Simpson, 18, officially broke up again on May 9, the supermodel was still upset over the song he wrote about their relationship. Thankfully, Gigi has been able to channel any heartbreak over her split into the next chapter of her life: taking care of her ill mother, Yolanda Foster, 51. HollywoodLife.com has the scoop!
Gigi Hadid & Cody Simpson Over: She’s Taking Care Of Sick Mom Yolanda Foster Post-Split
“Gigi isn’t too downbeat about her split with Cody,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Because she has a new focus now. Once Yolanda returns home from Holland, Gigi will be taking care of her mom who is currently undergoing treatment for her debilitating Lyme disease.”
Yolanda, who was diagnosed with the illness in 2013, has sought experimental stem-cell treatments overseas in Europe, as well as South Korea. It’s been a long and arduous journey for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, but her 20-year-old daughter is ready to make it better by staying by her bedside when she returns home to recover in L.A.
“Gigi knows she has to pull her weight and do as much as she can for her mom and stepdad, David [Foster],” the source says. “She doesn’t think it’s fair to leave that to everyone else and wants to help in and chip in when she can. Now that she has a bit of time on her hands, she will spend free time with her mom.”
Aww, what a good daughter! This sounds like the sweetest way for Gigi to move on from her breakup with Cody.
Immediately following Cody and Gigi’s split, the Sports Illustrated stunner‘s rep mentioned that, “They remain friends with no hard feelings and are each other’s biggest supporters.” While that’s great and all, HollywoodLife.com has learned that there was one song of Cody’s that Gigi just couldn’t stand behind. Yep, we’re talking about his jam, “New Problems,” which was written about the pair’s first breakup in 2014.
“Now that the song is out and getting more plays on the radio, it has brought back old memories,” our insider explains. “She hears it all the time and people talk to her about the song which is not fun. It’s really been a struggle for Gigi to wrap her head around and to think about.”
Regardless of what eventually tore her and Cody apart, Gigi has something much more important to focus all her time and energy on now: her mother’s health.
