Rumors have swirled that Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid are back on the sidelines again after reports surfaced that Zayn “punched” Gigi’s mother, Yolanda, last week.
Sources told TMZ that the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is “seriously considering” filing a police report to document the alleged assault.
In a statement to the publication, the One Direction member hoped to increase the “division” and “restore us to a peaceful home environment that will allow me to co-parent my daughter in a way that she deserves.”
Zayn strongly rejected all allegations, saying, “I categorically deny hitting Yolanda Hadid and for the sake of my daughter, I refuse to elaborate further and hope that Yolanda reconsiders her false allegations and moves towards resolution. of these family issues in private.”
Gigi and Zayn first became an item over six years ago when they were spotted leaving Justin Bieber’s American Music Award after-party holding hands; seen at the Met Gala in 2016
Gigi and Zayn first became an item over six years ago when they were spotted leaving Justin Bieber’s American Music Awards after-party holding hands.
A source told Us Weekly in November 2015 that while they weren’t “boyfriend and girlfriend” yet, they were definitely in love.
Months later, Gigi was spotted wearing a Z necklace on her way to Paris Fashion Week as she showed a photo of Zayn in the background of her phone.
Malik, however, denied any romance rumors during an appearance on the Beats 1 radio show and insisted the pair were just “good friends”.
His debut as a solo artist took a sexy turn with the video release of his debut single, Pillowtalk, featuring none other than Gigi. The raunchy visuals were followed by a flirtatious online exchange, leading many to believe their friendship was anything but platonic.
In May, they confirmed what was already assumed as they walked hand-in-hand down the red carpet at fashion’s biggest night, the Met Gala.
He opened up in November about how the pair met at a Victoria’s Secret party and he approached Hadid after he recognized her from “her picture,” and quickly took her on a date.
“She knows how to behave. She’s pretty classy and that. She’s by no means arrogant,’ he told ES Magazine. ‘She is confident. She wears it well. She is cool.’
Their romance continued to flourish, albeit mostly in private, but Gigi went behind the camera to photograph Zayn for the Spring 2017 Versus Versace campaign.
The Italian luxury brand shared a clip on its Twitter account with Gigi asking, “When you’re alone, who do you want next to you?” to which Malik smiled as he replied, ‘You.’

In January, Gigi shared a romantic tribute to her boyfriend to mark his birthday. ‘I love this man more than I could ever put into words [and] am inspired by his will to be and do better every day,” she wrote.
In March, however, the model sang a different tune as Gigi and Zayn called on her to stop sharing her tweets to confirm the split.
All was not as it seemed as Gigi and Zayn were spotted kissing in New York weeks after announcing their split, but Malik was absent at her 23rd birthday party in April.
In October, he made an appearance on her Instagram Stories when she shared a selfie and wrote, “Flyin home to my happy place.”
New year, new Gigi. The couple called off again, with multiple sources telling Us Weekly that their relationship was “over for now.”
Another insider revealed that the model “did her best to make it work” but he “has a lot of his own issues that she couldn’t help him with.”
Cupid’s arrow hit the right spot and the couple confirmed their romance was blossoming again on Valentine’s Day.
Although she has remained out of the public eye due to various COVID-19 lockdowns, Gigi revealed she was pregnant during a virtual appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
“Obviously we wish we could have announced it on our own terms,” Hadid said. “We are very excited, happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support.”
Gigi gave birth to Khai in a home birth in Pennsylvania in mid-September with Zayn, his mother, sister Bella, a midwife and the midwife’s assistant also on hand to help.
