Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik reportedly split after alleged fiery incident with her mother
Los Angeles, California - Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have reportedly ended their relationship after an alleged altercation between the singer and her mother, Yolanda.
Multiple reports claim that the couple, who share one-year-old daughter Khai, have decided to part ways amid stormy waters.
The split follows news of an incident that took place between Zayn and Yolanda at her Pennsylvania ranch in September.
The singer was charged with four counts of harassment after Yolanda accused Zayn of getting physical during the volatile argument on September 29.
On Friday, TMZ released official court documents in which The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star claimed that the singer allegedly "grabbed Yolanda and shoved her into a dresser, causing mental anguish and physical pain."
According to the outlet, the Pillowtalk singer pled no contest on Wednesday, but was fined and put on 90 days probation for each count, equaling to 360 days.
On Thursday, Zayn denied attacking the reality star, telling TMZ, "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."
The 28-year-old also released an official statement of his own.
"As you all 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," he began in the note that was published on Twitter. "A place where private family matters aren’t thrown on the world stage for all to poke and pick apart. In an effort to protect that space for her I agreed to not 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."
The former One Direction member added that despite his efforts, there was still "divisiveness" surrounding the incident.
He concluded that he would "remain vigilant to protect Khai and give her the privacy she deserves."
Gigi breaks silence over alleged split
On Thursday, the model also broke her silence over her alleged breakup from Zayn.
According to a rep for the 26-year-old, she is also focusing on her daughter amid the upsetting situation.
"Gigi is solely focused on the best for Khai. She asks for privacy during this time," her rep shared with E! News.
The former pair has been together since 2015, though they have split several times throughout the years.
This isn't the first time Gigi has asked for privacy regarding her personal life and her daughter.
Over the summer, she shared an open letter to the media asking fans, and paparazzi, not to reveal her daughter's face.
"Our wish is that she can choose how to share herself with the world when she comes of age, and that she can live as normal of a childhood as possible, without worrying about a public image that she has not chosen," Gigi wrote at the time.
That public image may be in jeopardy once again with her parents' latest firestorm.
