Zayn Malik has been arrested for allegedly assaulting Yolanda Hadid -mother to his partner Gigi Hadid- during an argument that reportedly took place in Pennsylvania. New Reports say that Gigi was apparently out working for Paris Fashion Week when the incident took place.

Zayn and Gigi are parents to their infant daughter Khai. While Khai’s mom Gigi was out of the country, Yolanda visited Zayn to check on her grand-daughter. Upon her arrival something between her and Zayn apparently went amiss and he reportedly thought her attempt to care for her grandchild was “crossing a boundary.”

Reports from Hollywood Life say that Yolanda meant no harm as she was simply fulfilling her familial duties. Yolanda has always been a protective and dedicated mother/grand-mother and wishes step in at any time to ensure her loved ones cared for.

Zayn took Yolanda’s interference as an attack on his parenting, according to the source: “But Zayn took this as a hit to his ego because he knows he’s fully capable of caring for his own child,”  


Zayn on the other hand went on to twitter to explain his side of the story following the altercation and subsequent his arrest. Zayn pleaded “no contest” to the charges said that he believes in restoring a peaceful family environment for his daughter.

Gigi and Zayn have broken up while Gigi’s siblings Anwar and Bella Hadid have unfollowed Zayn Malik on their Socials as they have chosen to side with their mother in the feud.

Reports say that Zayn must complete 90 days of probation for each count for a total of 360 days. He must also take anger management classes and participate in a domestic violence program.
