The couple, who were once spotted together in public regularly, haven't been photographed out since January, when they wore these matching Matrix-inspired ensembles in New York City.

They stopped 'gramming together.

The last Instagram Gigi posted of Zayn was from January, celebrating her then-beau's birthday. As for Zayn, his most recent lovey post went live in November 2017.

Gigi opened up about the difficulties of maintaining a high-profile relationship in February.

During an interview with Vogue, Gigi talked about the struggles that come with a high-profile relationship.

"If I post what I think would be normal to post with your boyfriend then the comments are: ‘It’s extra,’ ‘It’s forced,’ ‘It’s fake,’" she said. "And then if I don’t do enough then they’re like, ‘They’re not really together,’ so it’s kind of always a battle. But I do what feels true to me and I try to do it with integrity and all I can hope is that people would see it’s real."

Zayn has been posting some moody new videos.

They're beautiful, but just they just sound like heartbreak.
