In Malik’s twitter response he claimed that the incident was triggered by trying to ‘protect a safe space’ for one-year-old Khai. 

He also cast doubt over his relationship with Gigi as he said in the statement that they will ‘co-parent’ their daughter, suggesting they may not be together at this time. 

‘As you all know I am a private person and I very much want to create a safe and private safe for my daughter to grow up in,’ Malik began. 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 my partner was away several weeks ago.

Family matters: Zayn and Gigi had an on-again-off-again relationship beginning until 2015, and they rekindled shortly before the model, 26, announced she was pregnant with their first child in the spring of 2020

‘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 peacefully 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. 

He added: ‘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 needs.’
