Zayn Malik won’t fight the allegations that have been made against him in his ugly altercation with Yolanda Hadid. Just last week it was reported that the former One Direction singer shoved Yolanda into a dresser during a heated argument in the Pennsylvania home that Zayn shares with Gigi Hadid. Here’s what you need to know.
Court records allege the Bradford-born star told Yolanda to “stay away from (his) daughter” in an expletive laden rant. Zayn and Gigi share a one-year-old daughter named Khai. He is also alleged to have “grabbed and shoved” Yolanda into a dresser, “causing mental anguish and physical pain”. Malik issued a statement denying “striking” Yolanda.

Gigi, who has been dating Malik on-and-off since 2015, was in Paris at the time of the October 29th argument. Zayn was also allegedly involved in a bust-up with security guard John McMahon.
He is said to have told the guard to get out of the house in an expletive comment, as well as trying to fight him. The singer was charged with four counts of harassment in the non-traffic citation, which a court official said is not a criminal charge.
He pleaded no contest, meaning he does not admit guilt, but has chosen not to fight the charges. If that weren’t enough, the singer has been placed on 90 days probation for each count for a total of 360 days, the citation filed in Pennsylvania shows. Apparently, there was trouble brewing for years between Zayn and Yolanda.
We will update you with all of the latest details as they come in.
One source put it this way, “Tension really started between Yolanda and Zayn last year when he suspected she was the one who leaked their pregnancy news. Gigi and Zayn didn’t want to announce it publicly until after Gigi gave birth. With lockdown, it was the perfect time to give them that privacy they never would have had otherwise. They were so grateful for that privacy and they were very upset when it came out.”
