Zayn Malik, The Story Of My Life Singer, and Gigi Hadid, the popular model’s relationship, has hit the wall. Their fans are heartbroken at the thought that their favorite couple will be going for a divorce!
If sources are to go by, the couple is having issues in their marriage. Here are the details about their ongoing divorce and their custody battle.
The Incident That Led to Divorce
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have been on and off in their relationship for the past six years. The duo has been together for two years now, and before they can celebrate their third year, they are heading for splitsville. What led to their divorce?
One of the reasons for their divorce is because Zayn got into a physical fight with Yolanda Hadid, Gigi’s mother.
With one thing leading to another, each of them badmouthing the other, things became worse. Gigi was not present when the altercation happened. She was attending the Paris Fashion Week in Paris. The incident impacted them mentally so much that they couldn’t think of reconciliation.
The Eventual Court Case
Eventually, the matter headed its eventual course towards the court. And Zayn has accepted his mistake, and he was fined subsequently for his actions. There were four harassment charges against him. He also had to undergo 90 days probation period for each count, summing up to 360 days time period. Zayn had to attend an anger management class along with a domestic violence program. He was also asked not to get in touch with Yolanda.
The Daughter Dilemma
The couple is surely heading for splitsville. But the cause for concern for the duo and their loved ones, what will happen to the daughter? At least who will get her custody has been bothering the family. Gigi and Zayn’s adorable daughter is Khai, who is currently just one year old. On November 3, Gigi had filed a suit to get custody of her daughter.
The Custody Issue
As per reports, Gigi has met with a team of lawyers to settle her daughter’s custody issues at the earliest. Both the respective lawyers will sit it out and decide the entire custody matter amicably. Zayn has always been a protective and loving father to their only daughter. Gigi, however, does not plan on taking full custody of Khai.
She understands the importance of both mother and father in a child’s life. So, she decided instead of pushing the custody battle intermittently. She would instead focus on co-parenting. Gigi has a close bond with her father and would not want to separate her only child from her father. Gigi hopes to maintain a good and amicable relationship as co-parents and bring up their children in a healthy and safe environment.
Zayn Malik’s Point of View
After the altercation with the Hadids, Zayn tried to explain his point of view on his Twitter account. He expressed his disappointment as to how the personal news affected him and his career. Zyan wrote in his post that he is a private person, and he is all for ensuring that their daughter grows up in a safe environment. He also wishes that he was part of a world where private matters of people’s lives were not put under a scanner and judged.
Although he had tried his best to resolve the private matter at the best of his ability, he couldn’t restore peace in his family. This was also affecting the family atmosphere, and his daughter is young and vulnerable, and he would not want her to be subjected to malicious conjectures. The singer, much like Gigi, is not keen on dragging the custody battle.
Although both the parents are keen on co-parenting Khai in an amicable way, things have gone murky between Malik and the Hadids. Will they finally meet eye-to-eye and resolve their issues amicably? Well, we have to wait and watch to find out more.
Since both the celebrities are very popular, there has been a lot of press about their crumbling relationship. In these troubled times, they could do with some respite from the continuous onslaught of the paparazzi. At least their fans are hoping that their relationship does not end on a bitter note! We are rooting for the couple, too, and hope all goes well in their lives.
