Zayn Malik has been charged with harassing Yolanda Hadid and Gigi Hadid after vehemently denying hitting the “Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills” star.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, the “One Direction” alum was charged with four counts of harassment against the mother-daughter duo and copped a plea deal.
The publication noted that a court document revealed that Zayn pled guilty to one of the charges, but court officials say he actually pled no contest. So it’s not particularly clear now if he is guilty or not.
In the documents obtained, the argument ensued at Gigi and Zayn’s Pennsylvania home on September 29, and it was pretty heated. The singer allegedly called Yolanda a “f—— Dutch sl–” and warned her to “stay away from [my] f—— daughter.”
Amid the altercation, the “Dusk Till Dawn” crooner reportedly slammed Yolanda in a dresser, “causing mental anguish and physical pain.” However, he denied physically abusing her.
Although Gigi wasn’t present during the argument, she was not spared from the singer’s wrath. Sources told the publication that Zayn said to his baby mama on the phone:
strap on some f—— balls and defend your partner against your f—— mother in my house.
At the time, the model was in Paris. There were also claims that Zayn tried to fight the bodyguard present during the argument.
Following the accusations leveled against the singer, Zayn has been placed on 90 days probation for each count, totaling 360 days of probation. He was also ordered to pay some fines, take an anger management class and attend a domestic violence program.
The 28-year-old was also ordered to stay away from Yolanda or the security guard.
The Scandal Between Zayn Malik And Yolanda Hadid
As The Blast previously covered, it all began on October 28 when Yolanda accused the “PILLOWTALK” singer of striking her during an argument and considered filing a police report.
Following her revelation, Zayn took to social media to share a statement about the issue, stating it was supposed to be a “private matter,” but it was leaked to the public due to a “divisiveness” in the family.
The singer shared that he only wants to provide a safe space for him and Gigi’s daughter to grow up. After speaking out on social media, the British singer then expressly denied hitting his daughter’s grandmother. He said:
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.
Amid the abuse allegations, multiple sources confirmed to outlets that Zayn and Gigi had gone their separate ways but remained amicable co-parents to their daughter. Additionally, the insider shared that Yolanda was feeling “very protective” of her daughter and granddaughter.
