This is really sad to hear.

This is bound to ruffle a few feathers.
This week, the world was outraged when Alton Sterling and Philando Castile were shot by police for — what many are calling — unjust reasons.
On Friday, Zayn Malik joined the long list of celebs who have commented on the controversy.
It all started when a Twitter user accused the former One Direction band member — along with Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, and Kim Kardashian — of appropriating Black culture while refusing to denounce police brutality. (On Friday, Kim wrote on her website that she supports #BlackLivesMatter.)
Gigi Hadid's boyfriend responded by saying police brutality has nothing to do with the recent shootings; it all has to do with racism.
He posted and deleted:
The model captioned the PDA photo:
Ha! We don't doubt some other type of squishing went on after this pic was taken!
Well, it's clear Hadid and Malik are on track. We still can't believe these two have been dating since November… how time flies!

And now, it's been revealed that the two are "back to normal" since they've come back together!
According to E!, the couple hit rough times while the former One Direction member dealt with the "worst anxiety" of his career as he cancelled his performance during London's Capital Summertime Ball two weeks ago.
A source close to the singer spilled:
"Things are back to normal with them. They got through a rough patch that Zayn was facing personally and it started to put a dark cloud on their relationship. Gigi was there for him when he needed her the most and that brought them closer than ever."
In case you don't remember, the supermodel wrote a heartwarming message to her beau after his anxiety admission, even declaring her love for him.
The 21-year-old definitely made it clear she's on his side!
The insider even continued, explaining they're taking their relationship out of the spotlight:
"They have been spending some alone time together lately without the media seeing them. Zayn is feeling better with the help of Gigi and many other close people in his life. It's a work in progress for him."
Aww! We're so glad he has someone to lean on!
Stay strong, ZiGi!

Wow, way to go, Z!
That's so rare for a dude!
The singer joins cover stars Kristen Stewart, Amandla Stenberg, and transgender model Hari Nef as the mag's noted "rebels."
These are all limited edition covers for the September issue, so fans may want to get their hands on them ASAP.
We couldn't find any juicy quotes yet, but apparently Zayn talks about Gigi and his career in the issue, and we're obviously so excited!
We wanna hear what K.Stew, Amandla, and Hari have to say too!

More like Harry $$$tyles!
Although One Direction say they are on a "temporary" hiatus, the chances of them rebanding seem as thin as Styles' skinny jeans!
Well now, we're hearing more info about the 22-year-old's record deal, and judging from the numbers, there's no way in hell he's going back to 1D!
According to Hits Daily Double, there's a rumor circulating that the British babe's deal with Columbia is worth a whopping $80 million for three albums!
Apparently, Taylor Swift's ex ignited a bidding war, where Apple kicked things off with $25 million for one album. However, Columbia pulled through, and will produce Harry's albums.
Move over Zayn Malik! This town ain't big enough for the both of you!

It's about damn time!
The 1D frontman first made waves when it was revealed that he had abandoned the band's management team in favor of a deal over at CAA, and now, five months later, we're hearing he's FINALLY received that coveted recording contract!
According to a Billboard source, the 22-year-old actor/musician has signed a deal with Columbia Records, the same label that reps One Direction… but that's about all we know so far.
Unfortunately, there's no information regarding the stipulations to the deal nor a time frame in which we can expect the solo album to drop… but at least we know it's really coming!
Do U think Harry will be able to top Zayn's Mind of Mine??
