The former One Direction singer was accused of grabbing Yolanda Hadid and pushing her against a dresser, according to court documents obtained by ABC News and the Associated Press. Malik was engaged in “continuous cursing” against Yolanda Hadid, the documents said, calling her an “f — Dutch sl–” and telling her to stay away from her daughter.
Malik, 28, also told Gigi Hadid to “defend your partner against your f — mother in my house,” according to indictment filed in Bucks County. He also tried to fight a man named John McMahon, a security guard who witnessed the incident, the documents said.
Malik filed a petition for four summary cases of harassment on Wednesday. The plea means that Malik refused to plead guilty but accepted the punishment.
A judge sentenced him to 90 days probation at each point, or nearly a year in total. He must complete an anger management lesson and be screened for – and “if approved” – implement a program of domestic violence.
He was also ordered not to have contact with Yolanda Hadid or McMahon. Conditional imprisonment could be lifted in six months if Malik meets the conditions, according to documents.
Malik addressed the allegations on Twitter, writing that he “agreed not to contest claims arising from an altercation I had with a family member of my partner who entered our home while my partner was away several weeks ago.” He complained the case had been leaked to the media and called it a “private case”.
Malik and Gigi Hadid, 26, have a 1-year-old daughter together. The couple had been lovers for several years. She has become one of the world’s most sought after models, and he was the first to leave One Direction to strike out as a solo artist.
