Yolanda Hadid has reportedly accused Zayn Malik of striking her following an argument a week or so ago… but it’s something that the former One Direction star has “adamantly” denied.

Here’s what we know. Zayn and Gigi Hadid are reportedly no longer an item, which is something the on-again/off-again couple tried to keep on the DL. They share a 13-month-old daughter, Khai, and as far as we know, are both co-parenting her.

However, Gigi’s mom, 57-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Yolanda Hadid, accused the 28-year-old singer of striking her – whether that’s why he and the 26-year-old supermodel broke up or whether that’s a completely separate incident is currently unknown – which as we previously mentioned, he has denied…

“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,” he said via a statement.

The Pillowtalk singer also took to social media to address the matter further, although he didn’t mention Yolanda Hadid by name, but it’s fairly obvious who and what he is referring to…

“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. A place where private family matters aren’t thrown on the world stage for all to poke and pick apart,” Zayn’s Twitter statement began.

“In an effort to protect that space for her I agreed to not contest claims arising for an argument I had with a family member of my partner’s who entered our home while my partner was away several weeks ago.

“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.

“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.”

It seems like Khai is everyone’s number one priority at the moment. Gigi also commented very briefly on the matter, issuing a statement via her rep, who said: “Gigi is solely focused on the best for Khai. She asks for privacy during this time.”

Yolanda Hadid has yet to officially respond, although TMZ reported on Thursday, October 28 that Yolanda is “seriously considering filing a police report”.

No police reports have currently been filed – as far as we know – but we’ll let you know as soon as we hear more. We don’t know what to believe right now!
