It seems Zayn Malik has reportedly been crushing on model Neelam Gill, and according to recent reports it seems she has her sights set on him as well!

According to a video that recently surfaced of an interview in April, Neelam had nothing but great things to say about Zayn when asked about the former One Direction singer! She was there for The Asian Awards back in April 2015, where Zayn was being honored with the award for Outstanding Contribution to Music.

“Zayn’s a nice guy, I’m happy he’s being honored tonight and I think it will be a great night,” she told the reporter. When asked if she thought Zayn made the right decision in leaving the band, Neelam said it was a decision she respected. “I can relate to him because we’ve both been thrown into the industry and I can only imagine how crazy it’s been for him. As long as he’s happy, I respect that. Whatever he does I’m sure he’ll be successful, he’s really talented and he’s a good guy.”

Wow! Could it be that Zayn and Neelam are closer than we think? We wonder if their connection is real, being as how Zayn only recently split with Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards! Also, it seems that Perrie recently might have called out Zayn for apparently cheating…craziness!

So, do you think Zayn and Neelam are hanging out and have been for a bit now? Watch the interview below and let us know what you think in the comments!
