Rumors swirled that Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid were out again after reports surfaced that Zayn ‘beat’ 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 ‘split’ and ‘restore us to a peaceful family environment that will allow me to be the parent of my daughter in a way that she deserves’.
Zayn vehemently denied all allegations, stating: ‘I vehemently deny having beaten Yolanda Hadid, and for the sake of my daughter, I refuse to give further details and I hope Yolanda will reconsider her false allegations and go towards to cure these family problems privately. ‘
Gigi and Zayn first became an object more than six years ago when they were seen leaving the Justin Bieber American Music Award afterparty holding hands; seen at the Met Gala in 2016
Gigi and Zayn first became an object more than six years ago when they were seen leaving the Justin Bieber American Music Award’s afterparty holding hands.
A source told Us Weekly in November 2015 that even though they were not ‘boyfriend and girlfriend’ yet, they were destined for each other.
Months later, Gigi was seen wearing a Z-necklace on her way to Paris Fashion Week when she flashed a photo of Zayn as her phone background.
However, Malik denied all romance rumors during an appearance on the Beats 1 radio program and insisted that the couple were just ‘good friends’.
His debut as a solo artist took a sexy turn with the video release for his first single, Pillowtalk, with none other than Gigi in the lead role. The steamy images were followed by a flirtatious online exchange, which led many to believe that their friendship was anything but platonic.
In May, they confirmed what had already been assumed as they walked hand in hand on the red carpet at fashion’s biggest night, the Met Gala.
He explained in November how the couple met for a Victoria’s Secret party, and he approached Hadid after recognizing her from ‘her picture’ and soon took her on a date.
‘She knows how to carry herself. She’s pretty stylish and that. She is not, like, arrogant in any way, ‘he told ES Magazine. ‘She’s confident. She wears it well. She is cool.’
Their romance continued to blossom, albeit mostly privately, but Gigi stepped behind the lens to snatch Zayn for the spring 2017 Versus Versace campaign.
The Italian luxury brand shared a clip on their 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. ‘Love this man more than I could ever put into words [and] I am inspired by his drive to be and do better every day, ‘she wrote.
In March, however, the supermodel sang a different tune when Gigi and Zayn said it stopped sharing his-and-her tweets to confirm the split.
Everything was not as it seemed when Gigi and Zayn were seen kissing in New York City weeks after announcing their bride, but Malik was unable to attend his 23rd birthday party in April.
In October, he appeared on her Instagram stories when she shared a selfie and wrote ‘fly home to my happy place’.
New year, new Gigi. The couple cut it off again, and several sources told Us Weekly that their relationship was ‘over for now’.
Another insider revealed that the supermodel ‘tried hard to make it work’, but he ‘has a lot of her own problems that she could not help him get through’.
Cupid’s arrow hit the right spot and the couple confirmed that their romance was blossoming again on Valentine’s Day.
Despite remaining out of the public eye due to various lockdowns from COVID-19, Gigi revealed that she was pregnant on a virtual appearance of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.
“Of course we wish we could have announced it on our own terms,” Hadid said. ‘We are very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s congratulations and support.’
Gigi gave birth to Khai during a home birth in Pennsylvania in mid-September with Zayn, her mother, sister Bella, a midwife and the midwife’s assistant also ready to help.
