Did Cody Simpson and Gigi Hadid Break Up?
It looks like Cody Simpson and Gigi Hadid have called it quits on their relationship (again). According to E! Online, the couple reportedly broke up so they could focus more on their careers. "Cody and Gigi want each other to be in a place right now that allows him to only focus on his music, fans, and new message, while she can focus and continue building her career," Gigi's rep told E! News.
"They love each other dearly and have split up in hopes that growing on their own paths will bring them together in the future," the rep continued. "They remain friends with no hard feelings and each other's biggest supporters."
In a recent interview with HuffPost Live, Cody said their schedules were both busy, but it appeared they were doing everything they could to stay together in spite of that.
"We try to meet up wherever," he said. "She likes to fly out and see me in certain places and she lives in New York, and I come here often anyway. We see each other more than you would expect because we're dedicated to making it work and it's not too stressful. We try to stay in a bit. We try to stay out of...[the spotlight], but it's hard."
Cody and Gigi's busy schedules also got the best of them back in May 2014, when they split up for the first time after dating for a year. At the time, Cody told People, "I definitely don't imagine it being over for good."
Gigi seemed to echo those sentiments, telling Women's Wear Daily, "We're still best friends and I'll always respect him and support his career after the initial break up. I love Cody to death and he loves me."
