The former ‘One Direction’ singer is being accused of “striking” the ‘Real Housewives Beverly Hills’ star after some sort of argument inside the home of Malik and her daughter and supermodel, Gigi Hadid. According to reports, Yolanda claims Malik stuck her last week, and she is considering filing criminal charges.
“I adamantly deny striking Yolanda Hadid and for the sake of my daughter I decline to give any further details and I hope that Yolanda will reconsider her false allegations and move towards healing these family issues in private,” Zayn stated.
Zayn Malik Claims Yolanda Foster ‘Entered His Home’ While Gigi Was Gone
Apparently, in the past few days, Zayn claims Yolanda “entered his home” while Gigi was away, and an argument ensued. Yolanda claims the argument became physical and some sort of altercation took place. Malik originally broke his silence on the situation, saying, “As you all know I am a private person and I very much want to create a safe and private place 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.”
He continued, “In an effort to protect that space for [my daughter] I 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. 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.”
‘RHOBH’ Star Has NOT Reported The Altercation To The Police
At this point, it doesn’t appear Hadid has contacted law enforcement, but it appears she is still planning on reporting the incident.
Gigi Hadid broke her silence on the situation, saying, “Gigi is solely focused on the best for Khai. She asks for privacy during this time.”
As you know, Gigi and Zayn have been in an on-again-off-again relationship since 2015, but seem reunited since 2019. The couple welcomed their child, Khai, the following year and spent most of their time on the family farm.
According to a recent interview, Gigi claims Zayn “speaks his mind” with her extended family — telling Harper’s Bazaar, “He is very comfortable. He speaks his mind. When he’s in the middle of a family thing and everyone’s like, ‘Zayn, whose side are you on?’ he’s charming.”
Again, it’s unclear where the alleged assault might have taken place — and that will decide who would be investigating the incident. But, police and prosecutors wouldn’t get involved in this case, unless Yolanda specifically reported the incident to a department.
