Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik’s romance is over for now, multiple sources have confirmed to People. The news comes hours after TMZ ran a report where sources told it that Gigi’s mom Yolanda claimed Zayn “struck” her. Zayn “adamantly” denied the allegation in a statement to TMZ.

Gigi and Zayn’s split comes after nearly six years of on-off dating. The two last rekindled their romance in late 2019. They welcomed their daughter Khai in September 2020.

A Hadid family friend told People that Gigi and Zayn “are not together right now. They are both good parents though. They co-parent. Yolanda is of course very protective of Gigi. She wants the best for her daughter and grandchild.”

A source told Entertainment Tonight that Gigi and Zayn’s split came after Yolanda and Zayn’s alleged dispute. “Gigi and Zayn broke up after the incident with Yolanda,” the source said. “The two have been co-parenting but they are not together. They tried to make things work for their daughter, but it wasn’t working out.”

A rep for Gigi made a brief comment on behalf of the model following Zayn’s statement and the report of him striking Yolanda breaking this afternoon. The rep said, “Gigi is solely focused on the best for Khai. She asks for privacy during this time.” Neither Zayn nor Gigi have commented on the breakup on their social media.

Zayn made two comments on the strike allegations. He told TMZ after the outlet published their story that “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 initially posted a statement on his Twitter, asking for privacy for the sake of Khai.

As you all know I am a private person and I very much want to create a safe and private space for my daughter [Khai] to grow up in. 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. 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.

Zayn and Gigi first began dating in the fall of 2015. Their first breakup happened in March 2018 after nearly two and a half years of dating. They both released Twitter statements at the time announcing the split. They reconciled a month later in April 2018 but kept their relationship very private and generally off social media.

In January 2019, Malik and Hadid were widely reported to have split again, although some outlets like E! reported that they went on a break two months before, in early November 2018. By the holidays in 2019, the two rekindled their relationship once more…and only to end it again nearly two years later.
