Jake Paul is not letting up when it comes to Zayn Malik.

The YouTuber continues to kick down the British singer amid his abuse scandal involving Yolanda Hadid. In a recent run-in with TMZ, Paul took another jab at Malik.

When asked if he regretted trolling Malik and his baby mama Gigi Hadid on Twitter, Paul said he didn't and went ahead to say more things about the situation. The boxer said:

That guy’s a f---ing lunatic. He needs help—he needs to go to rehab, all that s--t. And I called it since day one. The guy’s a complete a--hole and of course, he punches Gigi’s mom.

Paul continued, calling Malik a "d---head," adding that the singer was lucky they didn't get into a fight the last time they had an altercation.

The professional boxer believed that Malik got what he deserved. As for whether the "PILLOWTALK" crooner could match him in the ring, Paul affirmatively stated no.

The social media influencer advised Malik to first fight his demons and added that he had no intention to end his feud with Malik and his now-ex-girlfriend, Gigi.

Jake Paul Trolled Gigi Hadid And Zayn Malik On Twitter

As The Blast previously reported, following the news of the "One Direction" alum abusing his girlfriend's mother, Paul took to Twitter to troll him and the supermodel.

The 24-year-old YouTuber rehashed a former heated exchange with Gigi on Twitter about Malik's attitude towards him when they had a run-in in Vegas back in February 2020.

At the time, Paul called out Malik on Twitter for being mean to him, but Gigi replied to him, defending her man and addressing Paul and his clique as an "embarrassing crew of YouTube groupies."

The "Love Advent" star described Malik as a "respectful king" who spent his time home with his best friend. Then, quote tweeting Gigi's tweet, Paul drove the knife in, writing, "Your’ rEsPeCtFuL KiNg’ punched your mom in the face."

Malik And Yolanda Hadid Had Boundary Issues

Following the news of Malik hitting Yolanda, the singer was charged with four counts of harassment against the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" and her daughter.

Although the British crooner denied ever physically attacking his daughter's grandmother, court documents obtained revealed that he showed her into a dresser during an altercation at Gigi's Pennsylvania home.

Malik was sentenced to 360 days of probation for all counts. In addition, he was asked to pay fines and undergo domestic violence and anger management courses.

Since the incident, the parties involved have kept a low profile, but new updates about the case show that Yolanda and Malik never really got along.

As The Blast previously covered, the duo had intense boundary issues, with the problem coming from Yolanda's end. The 57-year-old reportedly didn't respect Malik's place as her granddaughter's father.

She also didn't give the singer much respect or privacy whenever he was in her daughter's home. The pair clashed after Yolanda allegedly barged into Gigi's home while Malik was there without giving him prior notice.

The 28-year-old singer also had issues with Yolanda sharing photos of his daughter Khai on the internet.
