People was the first to report that the 26-year-old supermodel and the 28-year-old former One Direction alum split after rekindling their romance in 2019 and welcoming their first child together last year. Their daughter Khai is now 13 months old.
News of their split came after reports that Zayn and Gigi’s mom, Yolanda Hadid, got into a family dispute. Meanwhile, the singer denied the accusations thrown at him and addressed the issue through a tweet on October 28. According to him, he has “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 singer added, “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.”
TMZ was the first to report Zayn and Yolanda’s dispute. He denied “striking” the 57-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum. He added, he “will reconsider her false allegations and move towards healing these family issues in private.”
With regard to Gigi, she’s focusing her attention on her daughter, instead. She also asked for people to respect her privacy at the moment.
Zayn and Gigi started dating in 2015 and though it was an on-and-off relationship, they reunited in 2019. They welcomed their daughter Khai in September last year. The parents are known for keeping their baby’s life in private and that includes covering her face whenever they take photos and share them on social media.[adsense_articl]e]
During Father’s Day, Gigi posted a sweet tribute to Zayn on Instagram. She posted a photo of the singer with their daughter and captioned it, “Our Khai is so lucky to have a baba who loves her so much & does anything to see her smile!! @zayn Happy first Father’s Day.. I’m so grateful for all the lil bits of her that are you. We love you so much.”
