The iconic couple calls it quits
Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid might be broken up for good. Zayn and Gigi have been dating on and off since 2015 (nearly five years) and have recently broken up, for good this time, after Gigi’s mother, Yolanda, accused Zayn of shoving her into a dresser and calling her derogatory names. Zayn is a singer and former One Direction member and Gigi is a famous model.
The details of the story of Zayn and Gigi’s break-up are complicated. The official story that got reported by news outlets is that Zayn hit or shoved Yolanda into a dresser because they got into an argument that was caused by Yolanda barging into Zayn and Gigi’s house at night, which is when he works on his music. It has not been confirmed that he hit Yolanda because he denied the claims when she filed a police report against him. Because of the police report, he now has four charges against him and he was also fined and must have no contact with the security guard that was there during the fight, John McMahon, and Yolanda. He must also complete an anger management class and a domestic violence program. Zayn and Gigi have a baby girl named Khai together.
Zayn and Gigi have broken up but she still wants him to co-parent Khai because she says Khai needs her father. Bella Hadid, Gigi’s sister, has always disliked Zayn according to some sources. She and her brother, Anwar, unfollowed him after the incident with Yolanda. There are rumors that Bella always disliked Zayn because she was jealous of his relationship with Gigi and thought he ruined her career, but these are just rumors so it has not been confirmed. Yolanda also agrees with Bella that Zayn ruined Gigi’s career because Gigi started knitting and doing housework when she got back together with him last year, which left no time for modeling and attending parties. This made Yolanda furious because she is very protective of her daughter.
Zayn’s family seems to think the whole situation is made up because they have been showing their support to him through their Instagram Stories.
Some fans agree with them, saying that Zayn would never hit a woman because he has said that he was raised around women so he respects them a lot. Other fans are sad that Zayn and Gigi broke up because they were their favorite celebrity couple.
