One of Hollywood’s favorite young couples has just called it quits, and HollywoodLife.com can exclusively confirm the sad news. HollywoodLifers, are you shocked?
Cody Simpson, 17, is back on the market! HollywoodLife.com spoke to Cody’s rep who tells us that he and Gigi Hadid, 19, “have split.” This comes as big surprise since just a few weeks ago, Cody told us that he was doing whatever it took to make sure his relationship with Gigi would survive the hardships of dating long distance.
Cody Simpson & Gigi Hadid — Couple Break Up
The sad news was first reported by JustJaredJr.com, who spoke to an insider who said:
“They’ve been on and off trying to make it work, but their schedules have made it quite difficult. They agreed that things were finally over on Thursday.”
Another source added that the split was “amicable and they’ll remain best friends.”
It makes sense that long distance would play a factor since Cody has been busy shooting Dancing with the Stars in LA.
Cody On Dating Gigi: ‘I’m All In’
When we caught up with Cody while filming his music video, Love, he told us that he would do anything for Gigi.
“I’ll literally text, call, fly do anything to make it work,” he told us. “I have so much going on that it’s busy to balance relationships, but it’s really worth it. I’ll literally travel as long as it takes. When I’m into a girl, I’m really into her. I’m all in or I’m all out.”
Gigi, who can see in the pages of the Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Edition sounded very busy at the time.
“She’s getting busier by the day, with her Sports Illustrated shoot, and she’s doing a lot of runways next week,” he said. “I’m usually in the studio 12 hours a day. We’re motivated to make time. If you’re motivated, there’s always time that can be made. She’ll come to LA, I’ll go to NY, she’ll jump on tour for a little bit. If I have to take a six hour flight and be there for one day, and come back, that’s enough. We make it work.”
We are definitely sad that this couple broke up. HollywoodLifers, are you shocked they have split up?
