It all started in October 2021 after Yolanda Hadid burst into Zayn and Gigi’s residence in Pennsylvania unannounced. It is alleged that she had come to visit her granddaughter, Khai, but did not call beforehand. Seemingly irritated by this tendency, Zayn allegedly pushed the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star into a dresser and called her a Dutch sl**t. Zayn was reportedly upset that Yolanda was acting like she owned the house by visiting without calling and ignoring Zayn’s position as Gigi’s boyfriend and Khai’s father. A source close to Zayn also claimed that conversations about Khai’s privacy proved a constant source of conflict between Zayn and Yolanda.

TMZ reported that Yolanda was considering filing a police report over the alleged assault that she suffered in Zayn and Gigi’s residence. Various media outlets also reported that Yolanda told her friends that Zayn struck her. However, Zayn has responded to this matter by claiming that it was nothing more than a harsh exchange of words as they argued over Khai’s safety and privacy.

Court documents showed that Zayn was charged with four criminal offenses of harassment against Gigi and Yolanda. The documents further outline that Zayn shoved Yolanda into a dresser and caused her “mental anguish and physical pain.” It is alleged that Zayn later called Gigi and told her to strap on some f****ng balls and defend her partner against her f****ng mother.

In a statement shared by TMZ, Zayn denied hitting Yolanda. He said, “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.” However, Yolanda was reportedly standing by her account that Zayn struck her.

Zayn was also seemingly frustrated by the twist that this matter was taken. Taking to his Twitter, the singer tweeted, “This was and still should be a private matter,” he continued, “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. I am hopeful though for healing for all involved with the harsh words shared and more importantly, I remain vigilant to protect Khai and give her the privacy she deserves.”


The alleged altercation seems to have put a significant dent in Zayn’s relationship with Gigi. It is reported that in November 2021, Gigi met with her lawyers to sort out custody issues. A source close to Hadid claimed that she considered Zayn to be part of her life forever but that she was finding the alleged altercation between the Pillow Talk singer and her mother quite distressing. Poor Gigi must be in one big dilemma following this altercation. The source went on to state that although Yolanda was furious at Zayn, Gigi had made it clear that little Khai still needed her dad. Actually, Gigi has never doubted Zayn’s ability to co-parent well. The source further stated, “Gigi will do everything she can to make sure they co-parent in a civil way.”

This incident does not seem to favor Zayn and Gigi’s relationship has experienced various turbulent moments since they began dating in 2015. The couple had split several times before they finally rekindled their romance in 2019, and Gigi later announced that she was expectant with their daughter.
