In a new interview with People, the reality star opens up about his relationship and breakup with the supermodel. “We’re just friends,” he said of their current status. But it sounds like he has no regrets. “Just meeting someone that was great. She’s a great person, and I met a great friend,” Cameron said when asked about the best parts of the relationship. “She’s someone that I have a lot of respect for and think highly of, so I met a great person.”
And the breakup sounds very amicable too. “I took it as I met a great person, a great friend. It wasn’t like a bad breakup or anything like that,” he said. “It was just, we’re at different parts of our lives right now.”
Watch Cameron explain this for yourself, below. Start around the 8:10 mark:
The pair was first spotted together back in August, hanging out at the Brooklyn outpost of the celebrity-favorite Soho House. Bowling dates, an upstate road trip, and dinner with Serena Williams soon followed. Cameron even accompanied Hadid to her grandmother’s funeral services in the Netherlands.
“Although Gigi and Tyler are spending more and more time together, they are still casually dating,” a source told Entertainment Tonight in August. “The two are enjoying building a friendship first, going on dates, and having fun. Nothing more than that right now.”
Cameron says he’d date in the public eye again, though. “I’m still learning so much about myself every day. Being in this light is totally different, so I’m still learning,” he told People. “I’m open to dating anybody, public eye or not, just in the right time.””
