Speaking of pop stars' dating lives, exactly how close are former One Direction member Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid getting? Close enough for her to post photos of his bare chest to Instagram. Oh, and there was an adorable kitten in the pic, too, so it's basically peak Internet. Hadid posted the black-and-white photo without comment, just a simple image of Malik's headless torso cuddling her beloved cat, Cleo.

Fans easily recognized Malik by his tattoos, though it's worth noting that the tat of ex-fiancé Perrie Edwards on his right arm was not visible. I wonder how awkward that makes things.
