Zayn Malik is firing back after his girlfriend Gigi Hadid’s mother accused him of striking her during a nasty fight inside a New York penthouse.
The 28-year-old former One Direction star unloaded on Twitter moments after a story broke that Yolanda Hadid is planning to file a police report.
The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is telling friends Zayn got physical with her during an incident last week. The singer decided to address the situation with an extremely condescending message which appears directed to Gigi’s mom.
Zayn said he has decided not to “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.” That part is interesting given sources close to Yolanda claim the incident went down last week.
“As you know I am a private person and I very much want to create a safe and private space 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.”
“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 ended, “I am hopeful though for healing for all involved with the harsh words shared and more important I remain vigilant to protect Khai and give her the privacy she deserves.”
Earlier today, Yolanda was spotted walking around New York but refused to speak about the matter. Gigi has yet to be seen since the scandal erupted.
