WELP, at least it isn;t Munchausen/Munchausen by proxy this time. According to TMZ, they have heard from “a source close to Yolanda Hadid that, ” it happened at some point last week. We don’t have the details of what she claims triggered the alleged assault, but we’re told Yolanda stands by her account. She claims Zayn Malik “struck” her.” Well that is not vague at all. But wait, there’s more.. Yolanda is “seriously considering filing a police report.” Wow, I’m seriously considering turkey and cheese for lunch… or I guess dinner at this point. I’m sure it won’t take me a week to make that decision.
For those that don’t keep up with all the celebrities, Zayn Malik is one of those One Direction people who shares a one year old daughter with Gigi Hadid. Zayn does get into some pretty ridiculous altercations. Often times with Gigi defending him to guy who mentioned Zayn was rude when he encounter him by calling him “ugly” and “irrelevant.
Unlike Yolanda, Zayn has given a couple of lengthy statements.
Zayn posted that he’s a private person and did not want this to become public, but, “in an effort to protect that space for [my daughter] 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. This was and still should be a private matter 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.”
Zayn tells TMZ, “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.”
Zayn’s responses give two important pieces of information. It appears that the incident happened weeks ago. More importantly, it seems that Zayn was watching his daughter while Gigi was away and entered the home uninvited or perhaps without announcing her visit. The altercation happened at his home (where I presume Gigi also lives).
Meanwhile, now that the story is on TMZ, Yolanda is wandering the streets of Soho trying to get papped by as many paparazzo as possible. Because, Yolanda needs attention. I’m only surprised she didn’t blacken an eye or bandage her head. Thoughts?
