Pop star Zayn Malik has “agreed not to contest claims” that he struck Gigi Hadid’s 57-year-old mother following a heated argument.

The former One Direction star took to Twitter on Thursday evening following an allegation made by Yolanda Hadid that there had been an incident between the pair last week.

It has since been reported by publications in the US that the altercation took place at the former model’s lavish home in Pennsylvania.

Although details surrounding the event are few and far between, TMZ have claimed the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is thought to be considering involving the police.

The Daily Star has reached out to representatives for both Malik and Hadid for a comment.

In a lengthy statement, he penned: “As you all know I am a private person and I very much want to create a safe and private space 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 me partner was away several weeks ago.

“This was and still should be a private matter,” he added. “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 got together in 2015 and went on to welcome their beautiful daughter Khai last September.

The family continue to live a private life away from the media on their farm in rural New Hope, Pennsylvania where Yolanda and Gigi’s younger sister, Bella, also own land.
