Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have been *a thing* for a while now. They’ve been spotted all over, they hold hands, Zayn is Gigi’s freaking lockscreen for crying out loud.

But, in an interview with Beats 1 Radio earlier this year, Zayn was asked about Gigi and what he said was kind of shocking to anyone who has been shipping/following Zigi. He called her a “good friend.” Now, normally, being called a “good friend” isn’t a bad thing, but when it’s someone you consider a significant other, that’s the kind of understatement that can sting.
And that’s where your best friend comes in. When you’re a normal human, your best friend shows her support by pulling you away from your “good friend” at lunch and making sure everyone at school knows that you’re No. 1 in someone’s heart. When your best friend is Kendall Jenner, that happens on a worldwide scale.
After the eyebrow-raising interview, Kendall took to Twitter to adorably claim Gigi as her own since Zayn clearly wasn’t ready to publicly call dibs, according to Teen Vogue. Kendall’s series of gushing tweets are everything that is good and wonderful about best friendship.
