Lovebirds! Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik had a lot of celebrating to do after the AMAs, but they skipped the lit up after parties for some intimate one on one time. HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE details on why they avoided Drake’s big bash for a cuddly night at home.
“Despite being invited to Drake‘s AMAs after party, Gigi and Zayn decided to skip the hot party with their friends and instead celebrated their big night romantically together back at his place. Zayn was not trying to avoid Niall or anything like that, they instead decided to keep it just the two of them,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Zayn, 23, and his ex-One Direction bandmate Niall, made peace when the latter approached the “Pillowtalk” singer for a friendly handshake during the ceremony, so at least all seems well between them now.
“Zayn was super proud of Gigi for killing it as host and Gigi was equally proud of her man for his award-winning night. Gigi was also super-tired after a long day and just wanted to relax with her man,” our insider adds. We can totally understand how Gigi would want to kick back and have some quiet time with Zayn after co-hosting the marathon three-hour long gig. It was her first major hosting job and she must have been so relieved to not only have it behind her, but to have crushed it as well!
The pair also had so much to celebrate, especially Zayn’s big Favorite New Artist win. He seemed genuinely shocked when he got up onstage, even letting out a major diss towards 1-D when he said “this one just has my name on it, right?” OUCH! He won plenty of AMAs when with his former band, so it must have been sweet redemption to get one of his very own as a solo artist.
It’s too bad they bailed on Drake’s bash, because there were so many amazing guests they could have partied with! Gigi’s pal Kendall Jenner was on hand, as well as Shawn Mendes, Diplo, Heidi Klum and Kourtney Kardashian among others.
HollywoodLifers, are you surprised Zayn and Gigi skipped the party circuit for some alone time? Or is having a private celebration way more romantic?
