Up and down: Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid allegedly had a ‘destructive relationship’ prior to the fallout from him reportedly assaulting her mother Yolanda Hadid

A source told the publication: ‘Gigi and Zayn had a very destructive relationship when they were together romantically.’

By the sounds of things, it doesn’t sound like a reconciliation could be on the cards anytime soon as the insider added: ‘It’s much better that they have separated.’

The couple have had a tumultuous romance since first getting together in November 2015, having split several times over the six years.

The couple last called it quits more than a year before welcoming their now 13-month-old daughter Khai.

They rekindled their relationship in January 2020 and just three-months later it was revealed that Gigi was pregnant, before the pair welcomed Khai in September of that year.

And according to the source, the rift between the couple centres only on the drama between Zayn and Yolanda, and has nothing to do with his abilities as a parent.

They added: ‘Gigi stands by Zayn’s ability to co-parent well.’ 

MailOnline have contacted representatives of Zayn and Gigi for comment.

It follows reports that the duo had broken up after the model’s mother Yolanda alleged the musician ‘struck’ her during a recent argument.

‘They are not together right now. They are both good parents though,’ a source revealed to People on Thursday, adding that the former couple ‘co-parent’ their one-year-old daughter Khai.

Zayn and Gigi, who have dated on/off since 2015, welcomed their only child in September 2020. Hadid had confirmed her pregnancy in the spring of that year.

‘They co-parent. Yolanda is of course very protective of Gigi. She wants the best for her daughter and grandchild.’ 

Malik seemingly hinted about his and Gigi’s split when he took to Twitter on Thursday to address the serious claims made against him by Yolanda.

In his statement, Zayn said that the ‘private matter’ being made public has jeopardized the ‘safe space’ in which he and the catwalk star ‘co-parent’ their infant – seemingly suggesting they are no longer together.

According to TMZ, Yolanda alleges she was ‘struck’ by Zayn during an altercation that occurred ‘some point last week,’ whereas Zayn claims the incident involved nothing more than an exchange of ‘harsh words’ and had taken place ‘several weeks ago’ at Gigi’s home.

The outlet also said that Yolanda is considering filing a police report. As of Thursday, October 28, no police reports were seen on file.

This comes after it was revealed that Malik had pleaded no contest to four counts of harassment after allegedly pushing Yolanda, into a dresser and calling her a ‘f*****g Dutch sl*t’ last month in a fight at the home he shares with Gigi in Pennsylvania

The details emerged in court documents obtained by DailyMail.com on Friday. They reveal that he was charged with four counts of harassment, that he pleaded no contest and that he must ow complete 360 days probation in addition to completing an anger management class. 

The British singer must also have no contact with Yolanda, his daughter’s grandmother, or with John McMahon, a security guard for the Hadid family who witnessed the incident and who he also harassed.  

The documents confirm previous source claims that there was a fight in the couple’s home near New Hope, Pennsylvania, which emerged on Thursday alongside the news that Zayn and supermodel Gigi had split. It remains unclear if they broke up before the fight, or as a result of it.

The couple share a one-year-old daughter, Khai, and lived in a farmhouse in Pennsylvania, near Yolanda’s home.  

On September 29, Yolanda went to the couple’s property while Gigi was modeling in Paris.  Zayn was there, though it’s unclear if Khai was. What transpired next is unclear but the pair started arguing and Zayn ‘grabbed Yolanda’ and ‘shoved’ her into a dresser. 

He also verbally berated her, screaming: ‘Stay away from [my] f*****g daughter and calling her a ‘f*****g Dutch s**t’. 

He is said to have called Gigi in Paris and yelled down the phone to her: ‘Strap on some f***ing balls and defend your partner against your f***ing mother in my house.’ 

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'

A security guard was present for the exchange, according to the court documents, and Zayn screamed at him: ‘Get the f*** out of my f***ing house copper.’ 

At another point he referred to fathering Khai with the ‘f*****g sperm that came out of my f*****g c**k’. 

Gigi has refused to comment in detail on the matter but released a statement on Thursday night.

‘Gigi is solely focused on the best for Khai. She asks for privacy during this time,’ her rep said 

Yolanda is yet to comment.

Zayn and Gigi: A timeline of their fiery on/off relationship

Rumors swirled that Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid are on the outs once again after reports surfaced that Zayn ‘struck’ Gigi’s mom, Yolanda, last week.

Sources told TMZ that the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is ‘seriously considering’ filing a police report to document the alleged assault.

In a statement to the publication, the One Direction member hoped to rise up the ‘divisiveness’ and ‘restore us to a peaceful family environment that will allow for me to co-parent my daughter in a manner in which she deserves.’

Zayn strongly rejected all allegations, stating: ‘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.’

2015

Gigi and Zayn first became an item more than six years ago when they were spotted leaving Justin Bieber’s American Music Award’s after-party holding hands. 

A source told Us Weekly in November 2015 that while they weren’t ‘boyfriend and girlfriend’ yet, they were definitely into each other.

2016 

Months later, Gigi was spotted wearing a Z necklace on her way to Paris Fashion Week as she flashed a photo of Zayn as her phone background.

Malik however denied any romance rumors during an appearance on the Beats 1 radio show and insisted the pair were just ‘good friends.’

His debut as a solo artist took a sexy turn with the video release for his first single, Pillowtalk, starring none other than Gigi. The steamy visuals were followed by a flirty online exchange, leading many to believe that their friendship was anything but platonic. 

In May, they confirmed what was already assumed as they walked hand-in-hand on the red carpet at fashion’s biggest night, the Met Gala.

He explained in November how the pair met at a Victoria’s Secret party and he approached Hadid after recognizing her from ‘her picture,’ and soon took her on a date. 

‘She knows how to carry herself. She’s quite classy and that. She’s not, like, arrogant in any way,’ he told ES Magazine. ‘She’s confident. She carries it well. She’s cool.’  

2017 

Their romance continued to flourish, albeit mostly privately, but Gigi stepped behind the lens to snap Zayn for the Spring 2017 Versus Versace campaign. 

The Italian luxury brand shared a clip on their Twitter account with Gigi asking: ‘When you’re alone, who do you want next to you?’ to which Malik smiled while replying, ‘You.’

In January, Gigi shared a romantic tribute to her boyfriend to mark his birthday. ‘Love this man more than I could ever put into words [and] am inspired by his drive to be and do better everyday,’ she wrote.

By March, though, the supermodel was singing a different tune as Gigi and Zayn called it quits sharing his-and-hers tweets to confirm the split.

All was not as it seemed as Gigi and Zayn were spotted kissing in New York City weeks after they announced their break-up, but Malik was a no-show to her 23rd birthday party in April.

In October, he made an appearance on her Instagram stories when she shared a selfie and wrote ‘flyin home to my happy place.’ 

 2019

New year, new Gigi. The couple called it off again, with multiple sources telling Us Weekly that their relationship was ‘over for now.’ 

Another insider revealed the supermodel ‘tried hard to make it work,’ but he ‘has a lot of his own issues that she couldn’t help him get through.’ 

2020

Cupid’s arrow struck in the right place and the couple confirmed their romance was flourishing yet again on Valentine’s Day.

Despite remaining out of the public eye due to various lockdowns from COVID-19, Gigi revealed she was pregnant on a virtual appearance of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. 

‘Obviously, we wish we could have announced it on our own terms,’ Hadid said. ‘We’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support.’ 

Gigi delivered Khai during a home birth in Pennsylvania in mid-September with Zayn, her mother, sister Bella, a mid-wife and the mid-wife’s assistant also on hand to help out.
