In a shocking turn of events, Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid have decided to part ways after being in a relationship for two years. The ex-couple will continue to co-parent their daughter Khai.
According to the reports by People, it was revealed by multiple sources that Zayn-Gigi
have gone separate ways and are not together anymore. The report also added that though they were not together at present, they were good parents and were co-parenting their daughter, Khai.
The duo has been in news lately after it was alleged that the singer struck the supermodel’s mother Yolanda Hadid. However, the singer has denied such claims. Multiple media reports state that the couple who shares 13-month-old daughter Khai, have called it quits, however, the reason for their break up is still unknown. “They are not together right now. They are both good parents though. They co-parent. Yolanda is of course very protective of Gigi. She wants the best for her daughter and grandchild,” a Hadid family friend told People magazine.
After this allegation, Zayn took to his Twitter handle to tell his side of the story. According to him, Yolanda Hadid entered their home while his partner was away several weeks ago. He further stated that this should’ve been a private matter and expressed sadness at how this news was leaked to the press.
He wrote, ‘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. 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.’
“Gigi is solely focused on the best for Khai. She asks for privacy during this time,” Gigi’s rep told the outlet in a statement. News of their break up comes amid reports that Zayn and Gigi’s mother Yolanda Hadid were allegedly involved in an argument.
Earlier on Thursday, Zayn released a statement following a TMZ report that Gigi’s mother Yolanda was considering filing a police report against Zayn for striking her, according to unnamed sources. Zayn denied the accusation that he struck his girlfriend Gigi Hadid’s mother Yolanda Hadid and seemingly referred to the claims in a tweet on Thursday in which he said he has “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.”
