Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have reportedly broken up after the model’s mother Yolanda alleged the musician ‘struck’ her during a recent argument.
‘They are not together right now. They are both good parents though,’ a source revealed to People on Thursday, adding that the former couple ‘co-parent’ their one-year-old daughter Khai.
Zayn and Gigi, who have dated on/off since 2015, welcomed their only child in September 2020. Hadid had confirmed her pregnancy in the spring of that year.
‘They co-parent. Yolanda is of course very protective of Gigi. She wants the best for her daughter and grandchild.’
Malik seemingly hinted about his and Gigi’s split when he took to Twitter on Thursday to address the serious claims made against him by Yolanda.
In his statement, Zayn said that the ‘private matter’ being made public has jeopardized the ‘safe space’ in which he and the 26-year-old model ‘co-parent’ their infant – seemingly suggesting they are no longer together.
According to TMZ, Yolanda alleges she was ‘struck’ by Zayn during an altercation that occurred ‘some point last week,’ whereas Zayn claims the incident involved nothing more than an exchange of ‘harsh words’ and had taken place ‘several weeks ago’ at Gigi’s home.
The outlet also said that Yolanda is considering filing a police report. As of Thursday, October 28, no police reports were seen on file.
No further details have been provided in regards to what may have triggered the alleged scuffle between the two.
