Shortly after confirming their split, fans noticed Zayn had unfollowed his now ex-girlfriend and her mom, Yolanda on Instagram, reports E! News.

The former One Direction member reportedly had a close relationship with Yolanda, with the TV personality often sharing, now deleted, photos and sweet comments about the 25-year-old on social media.

Following the split announcement, Yolanda shared a quote on her Instagram that reads: "The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way that we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open."

She captioned the image: "And so it is....... #Life"

Fans will remember that Zayn recently got a new tattoo, rumoured to be of Gigi's eyes.

Zayn also had a tattoo of ex-fiancée and Little Mix member Perrie Edwards while they were together but covered it after their split. Does this mean he will remove or cover the eyes on his torso?
