Gigi Hadid: Friends Say DUMP Zayn Malik! He's a Total Nerd!

by at . Comments

It's only been a week since we first learned that Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are dating, but it seems the couple is already having some issues that'll bring you right back to middle school.

According to E! News, Gigi's friends think she should dump Zayn ASAP for the simple reason that he's a full-blown dork:

"Her friends do not quite understand what the attraction is," says an insider. "He is not her usual type, he doesn't share her sense of humor or ease with people [and] he's a little more self-aware and awkward."

One of Gigi's friends points out that the 20-year-old model "could date anyone she wants," and her friends think she's wasting her time with the shy, socially uncomfortable former One Direction heartthrob.

It's a strange criticism, as the 1D boys' very British brand of nerdiness is part of their charm, and Gigi previously dated Joe Jonas, who doesn't exactly have a reputation as Captain Cool.  

In any event, Gigi's friends should probably keep their catty opinions to themselves for the time being.

Given that the world learned last night that her mom, Yolanda Foster, is going through a divorce (while battling Lyme disease), Gigi could probably use the stability of a relationship with a level-headed guy like Zayn.
