Gigi Hadid has publicly supported Zayn Malik following his Summertime Ball withdrawal.
The 21-year-old model praised the ‘Like I Would’ singer’s ‘bravery’ after he was forced to pull out of Capital’s Summertime Ball over the weekend.
Replying to Zayn’s tweet where he opened up about his current battle with the illness, Gigi wrote: "Z – I've seen the battles you go through and the way you fight to get to a place that allows you to get up there for your fans. Your bravery in those times makes me proud, but your honesty last night proved what you're all about, being real.
"Human recognizes human. You made the best of the situation and have given your fans an opportunity to understand you better as a performer.
'Those who can find compassion now are the ones who deserve to watch you continue to grow. We are all here to support you and make each experience easier. Your talent and good heart will never lead you wrong.
"Love you and so proud of you always :) xG"
Zayn previously tweeted his apologies to fans who had come to see him at the STB explaining: "My anxiety that has haunted me for the last few months around live performances unfortunately got the better of me...with the magnitude of the event I suffered from the worst anxiety of my career."
