According to a new report, the former One Direction singer, who has allegedly been dropped by his music label, felt that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum was overstepping when she attempted to get more involved with caring for his and Gigi Hadid‘s one-year-old daughter, Khai, while the model was in Paris.
“Gigi was out of town working Paris Fashion Week when this incident between Yolanda and Zayn happened,” a source told Hollywood Life. “As everyone knows, Yolanda has always been a very hands-on, dedicated parent to her kids. She’s naturally protective and has been there for every step of the way when it comes to her kids’ lives. So naturally, when Gigi was away while working, she wanted to spend as much time helping care for her granddaughter as possible.”
“But Zayn took this as a hit to his ego because he knows he’s fully capable of caring for his own child,” the source continued. “Yolanda meant no harm, it’s just that she loves her granddaughter with all her heart and will step in at any time to ensure she’s cared for. It wasn’t a diss at Zayn, it’s more just in her nature to step in when it comes to those things. Zayn saw it as her crossing a boundary and that’s what erupted into their argument.”
While Zayn has publicly denied his allegedly physical encounter with the former RHOBH cast member, Gigi’s siblings, Bella Hadid and Anwar Hadid, have unfollowed him on Instagram and pledged their allegiance to their mother.
“Bella and Anwar will stand by their mom no matter what,” the insider explained. “They’ve both unfollowed Zayn because they completely support their mom and absolutely believe her account of what happened.”
Following a report alleging Zayn pushed Yolanda into a dresser and yelled horrible things at both her and Gigi, he was put on 360 days of probation, ordered to attend anger management classes, and required to take part in a domestic violence program after he plead no contest to charges of harassment.
He was allegedly also dropped by his U.S. record label, RCA, for increasingly smoking “extremely strong” cannabis.
“A lot of people have tried desperately to get Zayn’s life and career back on track, but nothing has worked. So many people who have worked with him have just given up. He’s almost impossible to control or guide. A while ago his label quietly decided it was the end of the line for their relationship, and now this,” a music insider told The Sun on October 29.
“He’s not with RCA any more. He’s reached the end of the line with them, just as with so many other people before now — managers, agents, label executives. Loads of people believed he had potential. He’s a talent with good looks and lots of fans. But he’s just too much,” the source went on. “Unfortunately, everyone who has tried to rein him in over the years has found it too much. He’s so determined in his [behavior], some fear he won’t be satisfied until his career prospects are totally finished.”
Amid the drama, Gigi released a statement, via her rep, which read, “Gigi is solely focused on the best for Khai. She asks for privacy during this time.”
