Australian singer Cody Simpson and his model girlfriend Gigi Hadid have split after a year together.
His rep confirmed the split, but of course didn’t offer any details.
Cody Simpson, 17, has been busy competing on “Dancing With The Stars”, while 19-year-old Gigi has been landing modeling jobs. Gigi was featured in the recent Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and will star in Miguel’s upcoming music video.
An insider said of the couple, “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”.
Cody and Gigi showed no signs of relationship issues when they starred together in his “Surfboard” video.
The singer said he wanted Hadid, the daughter of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster, in the video even though he normally tried to keep his relationships and career separate.
Simpson explained, “That’s not usually something that I like to do, I try to keep my personal life and my public kind of life separate, but I thought why not mix it too? Any girl that I’m with at the time is obviously inspiring music that I’m making at that time. It was going to be a kind of sexy video so why not get something that’s like natural chemistry?”
Cody adds, “Being able to get my girl in it was really nice and being able to make that kind of art with someone that you’re close with was a cool experience”.
