There have been tensions between Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid’ s mum ever since she accidentally shared a picture of her one year old granddaughter’s face on Instagram! Yolanda shared a sweet tribute to her granddaughter in January, but the snap is said to have shown the face of Zayn and Gigi baby, Khai, in a reflection in the mirror. Yolanda quickly deleted the pic and replaced it with a different image after realising her error, but the damage was already done as fans had seen the little face of Khai. Zayn, who along with Gigi never shows the face of their daughter publicly, was said to have been furious with Yolanda, with tensions remaining between the pair ever since. An insider revealed that Yolanda doesn’t see what the issue is, but Zayn and Gigi are very against their child being photographed and it’s been a huge cause of tension between them. Eventually, Zayn and Gigi’s relationship has reached a strange point, right after the picture of Zayn and Gigi daughter has gone viral.
Zayn addressed the incident on October 28, 2021, but asked for privacy, he took this on his twitter account where he penned, “As you all know I am a private person and I very much want to create a safe and private place 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. 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.” Zayn said he wants to “co-parent my daughter in a manner in which she deserves” hinting that he and Gigi were no longer together.
He continued: “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.”
Gigi’s mum Yolanda was a former model and is best known as a star of the US reality TV show, The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. Yolanda is also mother to the models Bella and Anwar, who is also the boyfriend of Dua Lipa. According to the sources, Zayn is an amazing Dad and Gigi has also said so. They are not fighting. They are actively and amicably working to find the best way to co-parent now. A representative of Gigi, said, “Gigi is solely focused on the best for Khai. She asks for privacy during this time.”
