Ever since Zayn Malik broke up his two-year-old engagement with "Little Mix" star Perrie Edwards, the former One Direction star has been linked with a lot girls, including Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner as well as "Same Old Love" hitmaker Selena Gomez.

And now, the latest reports suggest that a new name -- Victoria's Secret Angel Gigi Hadid -- has joined that list.

Gigi Hadid, 20, and Zayn Malik, 22, are reportedly experiencing the early stages of romance.

It's only been two weeks since Gigi Hadid and Joe Jonas broke up due to her "busy schedule". However, it looks like the model, who made her Victoria's Secret debut on 10 November alongside best friend Kendall Jenner, is not all that busy after all as she is able to take out time for Zayn.

The two rumoured lovebirds were first spotted together leaving "The Nice Guy" restaurant in Los Angeles in West Hollywood from Justin Bieber's American Music Awards (AMA) after-party on Sunday, 22 November.

A second date followed soon after, but this time Gigi's sister Bella Hadid (19) joined the duo at the same place in Hollywood late on Tuesday, 24 November.

An eyewitness on Sunday night said right after Gigi left "The Nice Guy" that she went out the front, "walked down the street and jumped into the car where Zayn was waiting to pick her up," US Weekly reported.

A source close to both the stars said, "They seem equally super into each other, texting each other all the time," adding that they've been hanging out for a couple of weeks now.

"He thinks she's so hot. He takes interest in her shoots and videos she does. He thinks she's sweet, too. She talks about her mom a lot and her family, and he likes that," the source said.

The source added that Gigi, who has been hanging out with Zayn and his friends, too "drinks beers with the guys," and is "cool, and funny."

This is not the first time when Zayn and Gigi have hung out with each other.

Earlier this month, the duo spent two nights together at the Bowery Hotel in New York, where Zayn was staying.

The two first met at Kylie Jenner's 18th birthday party in August when Gigi was still going out with DNCE frontman Joe Jonas (26), MailOnline reported.

As this new romance slowly heats up, Joe Jonas -- who has recently coloured his hair blue -- seems unhappy and "hurt".

According to HollywoodLife.com, the former "Jonas Brothers" star was "completely blindsided when he found out that Gigi and Zayn were an item."

"He was under the impression that she wasn't going to see anyone for awhile. The main reason why they broke up in the first place was because of her busy schedule. Gigi told Joe that her career was too demanding for a relationship. That she basically didn't have the time for one because she needed to focus on her career. She's obviously making the time for Zayn," the report quoted an insider as saying.

Having dumped Perrie to start everything afresh and also calling One Direction's music "generic as fuck" in his recent interview with Fader magazine, Zayn Malik is certainly heading to a whole new direction, musically as well as personally.
