David Gandy finally broke up with his girlfriend of nine months, Mollie King

THIS is single again. Hallelujah! Last summer, the sad news (for me) came out – British model and reigning “BLUE STEEL” Forever-Face David Gandy was dating a girl who I didn’t approve of – and yes, he needs my permission! Gandy is considered the top male model in the world. He’s currently the face of Dolce & Gabbana, and he has more than a dozen other ad campaigns going, plus he scores magazine cover after international magazine cover. He’s in demand all over Europe, Asia and even America. He blogs for Vogue UK, and he’s looking to get into acting too. His girlfriend was Mollie King, the lead singer of The Saturdays, a girl-group only popular in the UK. As soon as David and Mollie began dating (and I mean, like, a WEEK into the relationship), Mollie began giving interviews about David. It was a famewhore move, and I was kind of disappointed in Gandy for sticking with her for so long. Well, it’s finally over between them. Gandy confirmed it during a recent event:

Mollie King and David Gandy have ended their nine-month relationship after revealing their demanding schedules were getting in the way of love.

There had been speculation during the week that the Saturdays singer and the Dolce and Gabbana model were no longer an item; rumours that Gandy confirmed at a pre-Baftas party at London’s Savoy Hotel.

‘Sadly me and Mollie have split,’ the 31-year-old told the People at the Esquire magazine Orange Rising Star pre-Bafta party. ‘It just wasn’t the right timing and we were both so busy. I have been over in the States three times this month and a relationship can’t take that.’

News of the split comes just months after reports the couple were looking to move to India and settle down together. Gandy was full of praise for his ex, however, adding that well-wishers should not rule them getting back together.

‘Mollie is an incredibly beautiful, lovely girl and so grounded,’ he said. ‘But it just didn’t work out. Maybe in a few years when we are at different stages in our career we can make it work.’

Mollie, 24, who began dating Gandy last April, had spent the last week recuperating at home with her mum.

She told her 450,000 followers on Twitter that being back at home had its perks.

She tweeted: ‘Been staying at mums this week, it’s the best “hotel”!!! …Although not sure what the reaction would be to late night room service!!!!’

Well, he’s nice about the breakup at least. It sounds like he was the one to dump her, right? As far as I know, David’s dating history tends towards models or slender model-types. There was a rumor about David and Lily Cole just before he got with Mollie, which… I don’t think much of Lily Cole either. So does this make Gandy more accessible, the fact that he dates girls who aren’t all that?

    I didn’t know he was from Billericay, my boyfriend lives there and i go very very often, unluckily for me i’ve never seen him around! Damn ;)

  2. Rux says:

    My panties are already soaked and it’s not even 8 AM EST on a Monday….this is how every morning should roll out.

    He’s been in the states three times this month…someone give me a location STAT!

  3. GoodCapon says:

    I have no idea who he is but he has a very nice jawline.

  4. samira677 says:

    He seems intelligent in interviews but seems to come off as a Dicaprio or Clooney, preferring eye candy to somebody of substance.

  5. whatthehell456 says:

    Wow, weird….I’m attracted to him in the photoshoot pics, but the pics of him just on the street? I’d probably walk right by him, no interest at all. I guess it’s all the the “blue steel” look after all, huh?lol

  6. Rose says:

    He’s insanely hot. Don’t see why she has a hectic schedule, a member of her band is pregnant so they’re all taking 2 years off…

  7. Kiki says:

    Totally agree with you about Mollie, but Lily Cole as a girl who’s not all that? Don’t forget she has a double first class degree from Cambridge, which she earned while she was also modelling all over the world! And though unusual, she has her own beauty going on

    When I see humans this ridiculously good looking (Zoolander voice). I feel like God is LOLing’ at us average looking trolls while sipping Moscato. Is not fair, everyone should look this good. :(

  9. Maya says:

    Bazinga x infinity.
    I think I’ve just experienced the nicotine headspin – without the cigarette.

  10. DJG says:

    He is so hot.I want to lick him from head toe.

  11. Hellojello says:

    Does anyone else think he has Murder Eyes? For that reason only, I would not hit it.

  12. Suzy says:

    Oh lort, I don’t know who he is, but I wouldn’t kick him out of bed for stealing the covers!

  13. Elvynn says:

    I don’t really understand how we can be happy because two person broke up. I’m sure everyone had already been throught a break up. And in general, it isn’t nice. I hope they are ok.

  14. RobN says:

    ‘Sadly me and Mollie have split,’

    I suppose “Mollie and I” would have been too much to hope for out of somebody with those shoulders.

  15. Linda says:

    I doubt anybody’s going to be able to nail him down.

  16. Laura says:

    I am now going to stalk him. Good god i love that man there are just NO words

    • Trek Girl says:

      Go check out his blog at Vogue.com, if you haven’t already. If you love him from just seeing his pictures, you’ll absolutely adore him after reading his blog.

      There was one post wherein he spoke about spending Christmas with his family, and he mentioned being scaffolding in the pool for his nieces and nephews to climb on. How sweet is that?

      • Cierra says:

        i have read his blog entries and they are quite amusing and very well written. i don’t think he has help with them bc in interviews he seems so smart and well spoken. i will hopefully be moving to NY soon so i hope to at least see him. he is so GOREGOUS!!!! why is he not more famous here. i would love to see him all the time. ;) ;) . get it?

  17. SHEDA says:

    am i the only one who found his eyes creepy and think there staring into my soul

  18. aprayerforthewildatheart says:

    Good God! Beautiful bone structure, I love his slightly crooked nose, it keeps him from being too “pretty”. I don’t like skinny jeans!! When will they go away???

  19. Meanchick says:

    He is beautiful, but something tells me he falls ‘short’ in other areas.

  20. marie says:

    GORGEOUS!!!!! Very hot looking BUT it doesn’t look like he has much “junk in his trunk” if ya know what I mean. The peen looks small….no bulge in his pants. Yup, first thing I look for is the BULGE.

  21. DJG says:

    He has junk in his trunk! There are photos of him nude in his book for D&G.

  22. Jaqui says:

    ::sigh:: such a gorgeous man. Anyway I’ve “got him” for my very own and I know for a fact we’ll never break up: it’s called Schön! magazine issue 16 hahahaha. But seriously he looks amazing on the cover, it’s a really good close up!!! ;)

  23. Nalini says:

    His ex’s pop group the Saturdays is rumoured to have just signed up for a E News reality TV show in America minus the pregnant one,who is gonna join them once the baby is born.Its rumoured E News are gonna follow the group around whilst they try to break America in the music industry. The group is in the USA now.
    So IMO I think Gandy wouldn’t want to be linked to that, Reality TV – its just not him……and she would be based in the USA

    Good news tho, more pap pics of him to look forward to

    • Cierra says:

      oh man. its like katie price and peter andre when they came to the states except i don’t really like the saturdays. not bc of david and mollie dating, but i don’t really like their music. its just reprocessed tunes from others who didn’t want the songs. but, good luck to them. e! usually keeps those kinda shows on for a season or 2 before the kartrashians do another season.

    Where the hell are you? I have been looking for your blog and all I get is old news. You are one of the few people who actually has something to say. The only thing I get is something months old. Miss you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
