Celebrity couple supermodel Gigi Hadid and former One Direction star Zayn Malik have finally called their relationship quit after a family altercation.
According to People, the news of the on and off pair’s breakup comes after the supermodel’s mother, Yolanda Hadid, alleged that she and Malik had a physical altercation. The supermodel’s rep also released a statement to the magazine, stating: “Gigi is solely focused on the best for Khai. She asks for privacy during this time.“
TMZ broke the news that Yolanda Hadid claims Malik struck her last week, and she’s seriously considering filing a police report. Meanwhile, the former One Direction star, 28, who shares a 1-year-old daughter named Khai with model Gigi Hadid, 26, issued a statement on Thursday, 28 October defending himself.
The statement, which Zayn Malik released on Twitter, acknowledged that ‘an argument’ took place between him and a family member of his partner without naming Yolanda Hadid or indicating that the exchange became physical.
His statement reads: “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.
“In an effort to protect that space for her, I agreed not to 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.
“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. I am hopeful though for healing for all involved with the harsh words shared, and more importantly, I remain vigilant to protect Khai and give her the privacy she deserves.”
