In the first major couple break up of 2019, model Gigi Hadid and singer Zayn Malik have split up again.
“They’re done,” a source told Us. “They could get back together, but it’s over for now.” It’s unclear exactly when the breakup happened, but E! News reported yesterday that the couple has been “spending time apart since early November.”
A source told ET that Gigi and Zayn didn’t break up because they stopped loving each other, but rather because they “just couldn’t make it work.” Zayn is working on “personal things,” the insider added, and Gigi “has become a comfort blanket for him.”
The CW has ordered a pilot based on Ruby Rose‘s Batwoman, who made her debut as part of the network’s recent Elseworlds DC-TV crossover, according to Deadline.
Emmy-winning Game of Thrones director David Nutter will helm the episode and is widely expected to be picked up by the network. The CW has released a description of the series, stating:
“Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane [Rose] soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”

Remember all the buzz a few weeks ago about a reboot of Beverly Hills, 90210 with a majority of the original cast members? It turns out that it’s not even actually a revival. Or a reboot. Nope, instead, Beverly Hills, 90210 is going meta on us, with the project opting to go for more of a mockumentary style.
The show is actually an hour-long mockumentary-style dramedy that will see cast members Jennie Garth, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling, Ian Ziering, Brian Austin Green and Gabrielle Carteris playing themselves as they chronicle their attempts to get (another) 90210 revival off the ground.
