Singer Zayn Malik did not dispute the harassment of Gigi Hadid and her mother, Yolanda Hadid, during a dispute at the former couple’s home in Pennsylvania last month, according to court documents.
Malik, 28, was cited for four criminal offenses and pleaded on Wednesday, according to legal documents. The dispute between the former One Direction member and the Hadid family took place on September 29.
The “Better” singer reportedly called Yolanda Hadid a “fucking Dutch slut” and ordered her to “stay away from [his] f — ing girl, “the court document said. During the incident, he was also accused of grabbing and pushing her” into a dresser, causing mental anguish and physical pain. “
At one point another man showed up at the house, prompting Malik to try and fight him by saying, “Get the fucking copper out of my fucking house.”
Malik was also accused of telling Gigi Hadid, “Grab some fucking balls and defend your partner against your fucking mother in my house.”
Malik was fined; placed on 90 days probation for each count, for a total of 360 days; and required to complete an anger management course and family violence program. He was also ordered not to contact Yolanda Hadid or the man he allegedly tried to fight.
If all the conditions are met after six months without an offense, the judge can end his probation.
Representatives for Malik and the Hadids did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Friday.
The former One Direction singer released a statement on Twitter on Thursday, calling the situation a “private matter.”
“As you all know, I am a private person and I really want to create a safe and private space for my daughter to grow up. A place where private family matters are not thrown onto the world stage so that all can sting and choose. apart, ”Malik wrote in his statement.
In an effort to “protect” Khai, the one-year-old daughter he shares with Gigi Hadid, Malik said he had agreed to “not dispute claims arising from an argument I had with a family member of my partner who entered our house while my partner was away several weeks ago.
The singer continued, “It was and always should be a private affair, but it seems so far that there are divisions and despite my efforts to restore ourselves to a peaceful family environment that will allow me to co-parent my daughter. in a way it deserves, this has been “leaked” to the press.
Malik concluded his post by saying that he hoped the “cure” would come to everyone involved in the alleged incident.
He added, “I hope, however, that everyone involved is healed from the harsh words shared and, more importantly, I remain vigilant to protect Khai and give her the privacy she deserves.”
