Cody Simpson and Gigi Hadid Split, Remain ‘Close Friends’


Cody Simpson is back on the market!

The “Surfboard” singer’s rep has confirmed to E! Online that the 17-year-old and model Gigi Hadid, 19, have split after nearly a year of dating.

“Their busy schedules and living on opposite coasts have made it nearly impossible for the two of them to give the relationship the attention that it needs,” the rep says in a statement. “They decided that rather than let things sour that they split up in hopes that their lives might someday bring them back together. They remain close friends and will continue to show their support for one and other.”

After the news broke, Gigi — who often appears on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills with her mother Yolanda Foster — tweeted the same rep response, along with the caption, “All love here.”

With more time on his hands, Cody is looking forward to new music. Before the split announcement, he tweeted about his third album on Sunday. was the first to report the news of Cody and Gigi’s breakup.
