Four years ago, in 2015, Gigi Hadid and Joe Jonas had a whirlwind five-month romance. The end of the couple, famously dubbed G.I. Joe by Cara Delevingne, was said to be friendly-ish, although Jonas hinted later that the positive sentiment didn’t last. (Hadid started dating her next boyfriend Zayn Malik weeks after she and Jonas broke up.) She and Jonas weren’t photographed together again in public until today in Paris…and only for business reasons.
Jonas attended the Berluti Menswear Fashion Show, where photographers documented him watching Hadid walk down the runway from his front row seat. The last time the two were photographed out together was back when they were together in October 2015, so this is a rare sight:
When Hadid and Jonas broke up, People reported things ended amicably. “Nothing serious happened,” a source told the magazine. “It wasn’t a dramatic break up. It was just hard to make it work with their schedules. They will definitely remain friends.” The two don’t follow each other on Instagram, so whatever their current relationship is, it’s private.
There was a little acknowledgement by Jonas publicly that he and Hadid didn’t remain close after their breakup. Jonas teased in February 2016 on Twitter that it’s “always fun writing a song that’s gonna piss someone off,” with a smirking emoji, leading the internet to speculate that someone getting a DNCE song was Gigi Hadid. Entertainment Tonight even asked him in April if Hadid was the person. “As of right now, you’ll definitely know who it’s about [when you hear it,]” he said coyly. “But sometimes you have to sugarcoat it so it’s not so obvious.”
When Jonas played Plead the Fifth on Watch What Happens Live in July 2016, Andy Cohen asked him to marry, shag, kill with his exes Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift, and Gigi Hadid. “Marry Demi, she’s a friend,” Jonas answered immediately. Then he hesitated when it came to Hadid and Swift’s fates. “This is a game, right? Shag Taylor, kill Gigi?” he finished. But time heals everything. Jonas is now happily married to Sophie Turner. Hadid dated Malik for two and a half years, but the two remain amicable now.
