AceShowbiz - Zayn Malik has ended his social media hiatus after calling it quits with Gigi Hadid following an alleged physical altercation with Yolanda Hadid. The former One Direction member returned to Instagram with a sultry photo.
On Thursday, November 11, the 28-year-old singer took to the photo-sharing app to post a photo of himself posing for an ad for his collaboration with sunglasses brand Arnette. Along with the picture that saw him sitting with his arms crossed while wearing sunglasses and a black turtleneck, he wrote, "DROPHEAD. @arnette #zaynxarnette #ad."
Zayn's last Instagram post on October 24 was a selfie. Four days later, the "Pillowtalk" crooner addressed the altercation with his former partner's mom Yolanda in a lengthy Twitter statement. The alleged incident happened after the former star of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" came to visit her granddaughter Khai "without calling beforehand or even knocking at the door."
"As you all know I am a private person and I very much want to create a safe and private space for my daughter [Khai] to grow up in," Zayn tweeted at that time. "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 [Khai], 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."
In the wake of the altercation, Yolanda, Gigi and Bella Hadid "have been staying together in NYC and have truly been supporting each other. They have a great family support system and are glad they have each other to lean on." A source also claimed that "the whole family wants Gigi to be done with Zayn for good" as "they have seen this behavior before and think it's unacceptable."
As for Gigi and Zayn, they're reportedly trying to be "civil." A source close to the Hadid family divulged, "Gigi and Zayn are broken up, but intend to co-parent Khai in a peaceful and healthy environment. They are working out custody details. They are in contact over Khai and making decisions for her." The source stressed, "It's a tense situation."
It's also reported that Gigi and her former partner "have both met with lawyers separately." The informant added, "They both want to make sure they can sort out the custody situation with Khai and both feel entitled to custody of her."
