Looks like Cody Simpson is going to have to find someone else to go surfing with since his romance with model Gigi Hadid is over.
The two, who were dating for nearly a year, have decided to part ways, citing distance and their schedules.
“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,” Simpson’s rep told E! News 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 another.”
The split must have been pretty recent, since just last week Gigi, who was featured in the 2014 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, had posted a photo of the two of them looking quite happy together.
Fans got an intimate look at their relationship when Gigi starred in Simpson’s latest music video for the catchy track “Surfboard,” the first single off his upcoming album.
“Working with my girl makes it so much more comfortable. I’ve never had a girlfriend in a music video before…” Simpson said. “I thought, might as well have the girl in that inspired the song, and it just made the chemistry so natural. Some scenes where they didn’t end up putting in the video was us kissing or whatever, but we ended up shooting those scenes as options, and they ended up yelling ‘cut,’ and we didn’t stop.”
Simpson, who recently completed his run on “Dancing with the Stars,” was last seen with Hadid at the Radio Disney Music Awards in L.A. on April 8.
