Ouch! Watching your ex move on can really sting. Unfortunately, that’s been the case for Cody Simpson as he’s been forced to face the truth — his former lady love, Gigi Hadid, is getting hot and heavy with a new man: Joe Jonas!
Past couple, Cody Simpson, 18, and Gigi Hadid, 20, ended things pretty amicably. On May 9, the pair released a joint statement saying they’d remain friends post-split. Well, that might not be the case any longer. Why? Because a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Cody is heartbroken and furious over the fact that Gigi has been revving up a romance with Joe Jonas, 25!
“Cody thinks that Gigi should have waited to move on because he thought they had something really special,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He isn’t over it, and now that she’s moved on so fast, he is not taking it so well.”
Poor Cody! On the bright side, this could just be Gigi’s way of making the “Thotful” singer jealous? Either way, he isn’t happy about his ex’s rebound relationship. “He’s more mad at Gigi [than Joe] but also don’t count on Cody hanging out with Joe anytime soon,” the source explains. “He’s shaken up over the whole situation!”
While Joe and Gigi have yet to make it official, a second source tells us that the former Jonas Brothers singer has been making a huge effort to secure the Sports Illustrated stunner as his one and only.
“Joe is working overtime to get it done. He is convinced he will be Gigi’s boyfriend in no time,” the insider says. “She has options, but Joe is putting his best foot forward to make him the only option she is willing to accept.”
Judging from their recent interaction, it seems like Miss Hadid is more than ready to slap a label on her flirty fling with Joe. The adorable duo were spotted kissing at NYC’s Boom Boom Room on June 1, according to Us Weekly — and TMZ has pics of the couple smooching again, just days later at another bar in the city on June 4. Looks like these two are indeed getting super serious. Sorry ’bout it, Mr. Simpson!
