Former One Direction star Zayn Malik and his girlfriend supermodel Gigi Hadid have reportedly broken up due to the issues related to Gigi’s mother Yolanda Hadid. Sources claim that Zayn struck Yolanda which caused this whole controversy to stir up. Let us see what this is about.
Zayn and Gigi Hadid have been in an on and off relationship since November 2015, and together they have a daughter Khai, who was born last year. However, there seems to be trouble in paradise when Yolanda Hadid accused Zayn that he “struck her”, and is also planning to file a police complaint against the “Mind of Mine” singer.
A Hadid family friend told People, “They are not together right now. They are both good parents though”, continuing the statement, “They co-parent. Yolanda is of course very protective of Gigi. She wants the best for her daughter and grandchild
However, the 28 year old singer denied the accusations in a statement to TMZ saying, “I adamantly deny striking Yolanda and for the sake of my daughter decline to give any further details and I hope that Yolanda will reconsider her false allegations and move towards healing these family issues in private.”
The “Pillowtalk” singer also took this issue on his Twitter with a long note that reads:
“As you all know I am a private person and I very much want to create a safe and private space for my daughter to grow up in. A place where private family matters aren’t thrown on the world stage for all to poke and pick apart.
In an effort to protect that space for her I agreed to not contest claims arising from an argument I had with a family member of my partner’s who entered our home while my partner was away several weeks ago.
This was and still should be a private matter but it seems for now there is divisiveness and despite my efforts to restore us to a peaceful family environment that will allow for me to co-parent my daughter in a manner in which she deserves, this has been “leaked” to the press.
I am hopeful though for healing for all involved with the harsh words shared and more importantly I remain vigilant to protect Khai and give her the privacy she deserves.”
However, the couple and their family members have tried very hard to hide the face of their baby due to the privacy that she deserves, and have been very successful till now
Zayn and Gigi’s romance sparked back in 2015, and soon she appeared with him on his music video for the hit song “Pillowtalk”. Soon after the song was released, they confirmed their relationship and also appeared on the cover of Vogue magazine in 2016. The couple broke up in 2018, but soon reconciled back in 2019 with Gigi sharing a picture of Zayn on her Instagram story addressing him as “Hey Valentine”. Gigi announced her pregnancy in an episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and gave birth to daughter Khai in September of 2020.
One of Gigi’s representatives has told People that she is just focusing on her daughter right now saying, “Gigi is solely focused on the best for Khai. She asks for privacy during this time.” It is yet still not very sure if the couple have parted their ways or not as they both still follow each other on Instagram.
Yolanda Hadid and Gigi Hadid have yet to comment on this matter, but the comment section of The Real House of Beverly Hills star on her social media is filled with a lot of hate comments right now.
