According to Daily Mail’s source, Malik met Gill in London earlier this year and was smitten by her. The 20-year-old model is planning to fly in to Los Angeles to spend a few days with Malik. He had rented a house in the city to work on his first solo album.
Gill, a London native, was Burberry’s first ever Indian model. According to an article on Elle.com, she posed with Malik’s bandmate Harry Styles at a fashion show for the brand last year.
Malik split from Edwards earlier this month allegedly via text message. The Rixton frontman Jake Roche, who is also the boyfriend of Edwards’ Little Mix bandmate Jesy Nelson, blasted Malik for his attitude. “The way he’s treated her is horrible,” Roche told The Sun. “He’s not a very nice man. Professionally he’s talented but – and I’m speaking from what I’ve seen – he should be ashamed.” Following the split, Malik was linked to Zendaya Coleman but she quickly denied it. “literally NEVER met #gottaloveit,” Coleman tweeted.
