Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid, reportedly, called it quits after the singer got involved in an argument with Yolanda.
Sources confirmed that Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid are no longer together. The couple shares one daughter, Khai.
The said sources, reportedly, confirmed the news to People, assuring that they still work together to parent their child.
“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,” the insider said.
Meanwhile, a representative for the 26-year-old supermodel told the news outlet that she wants privacy amid the dark time.
What Happened Between Zayn, Yolanda?
Before the breakup news emerged, a news outlet claimed that the Pillowtalk hitmaker struck Yolanda in one of their recent arguments.
Zayn, on the other hand, quickly debunked the report and said he only spoke out for the sake of his daughter.
“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,” he wrote.
The singer also said that he indeed had an argument with Yolanda when Gigi was not home weeks ago. In the end, he asked his mother to reconsider the false accusations she spread. He then advised her to be open in healing as they try to resolve their family issues privately.
After Zayn released the statement, his fans trended RESPECT ZAYN and FREEZAYN on Twitter as they appeal for justice for the singer.
One said, “My man is doing all of this for his daughter. Now you can tell the difference between an humble person like him, doing this for his khai, and a b-tch like Yolanda.”
“I knew from the time he posted this that there was something wrong or that something is gonna happen it’s just that no on e listened. I’M WITH YOU ZAYN,” another added.
Zayn and Gigi first started dating months after the singer broke off his engagement to Little Mix’s singer, Perrie Edwards. In January 2016, the former One Direction member said that they were only friends.
However, the model appeared on his Pillowtalk music video and made out on screen. The duo then continuously showed PDA moments online and in public until they finally confirmed their relationship.
