"Being by myself has just freed up space for me to actually be myself.”

Cody Simpson opens up about his split from Gigi Hadid.

Despite our hopes that Cody Simpson and Gigi Hadid would get married, run into the sunset and start the best looking family we’ve ever laid eyes on (some would say we have very active imaginations), it would appear that the two aren’t getting back together any time soon.

Cody chatted to E! News about his split from Gigi.

"I'm 18 years old, and I'm sort of going through that time in my life where I'm like a different person every week. You're going through the phases of being young and discovering yourself and uncovering all the layers," he explained.

"Being by myself has just freed up space for me to actually by myself as opposite to half of somebody else," he explained.

"Being by myself is great because I can be low-key... [I can] focus on my music, I'm taking up film and photography, skateboarding..."

Taking up film? As in acting? Because we would SO support that decision.

Gigi has yet to speak about the break-up but she has been spotted getting busy in the arms of Joe Jonas. Us? Jealous? Please. OK, maybe a tiny bit.

The Guess model has opened up before about staying good friends with Cody despite the relationship being over sob.

"I love Cody to death and he loves me. I’ll always respect him and support his career," Gigi said.
