Gigi Hadid's Topless Shot Of Zayn Malik Is Awfully Catty

Oh, Gigi and Zayn. Must you tease us so? Apparently, you must.

On January 2, the ubiquitous Ms. Hadid took to Instagram to share an intimate pic with her 11 million-plus followers: a shirtless Zayn Malik in black and white, petting her kitten with his man bling on display. Although the black-and-white shot cuts the head off of the fellow in the frame, we can tell it's the former One Direction crooner from his copious tattoos and jewelry — no caption necessary.

Now, the cat in question here appears to be Cleo Hadid — Gigi's kitten, who happens to have her own Instagram account (@therealcleohadid) with 12.4K followers. In one of Cleo's posts, she shares that her hobbies include: "hanging out with @gigihadid and sleeping." Things over which she and Malik can evidently bond.

The interwebs has been quick to point out the clever cropping by Hadid in this shirtless Malik snapshot: Malik's most famous bit of ink is a tattoo of his former fiancée, Perrie Edwards, on his arm. That doesn't quite seem to make it into the frame here...darn it!

A few days earlier, on New Year's Eve, Hadid tweeted an image of herself wearing a Bradford City AFC football club sweatshirt, shouting out to Malik's favorite team. Malik tweeted that "It's a lil old," referring to the outdated style Hadid was sporting. Bradford City AFC graciously offered to send Hadid a current version.
