E! News has the photos which began the flurry of speculation on whether or not these two are pursuing something romantic. The snapshots show the supermodel hopping into the former One Direction singer's car after spending some time at an American Music Awards after-party on Sunday night in West Hollywood.
"Zayn was not with Gigi inside the party. He came to pick her up afterwards. Gigi walked out the front of the restaurant and hopped in the car with him," a source told E! News at the time.
Hadid (and her faux bob) is shown in conversation with Malik, who was sitting in the seats behind her, as he flashed a small smirk while rocking his famous scruff.
Another source told E! News that while it's too soon to call the model and singer a couple, they're definitely spending some quality time together lately.
"They are just friends and are casually hanging out," the insider explained. "She is not looking to jump into another relationship so soon. Gigi is a relationship-type kinda girl, but she wants to just have some fun and take time for herself and her career at the moment. Zayn is good friend of Selena Gomez and her whole gang of friends."
E! News has reached out to both camps for comment.
