It's over

They were the cutest couple of the moment, the cutest parents in the universe and everyone wanted them to continue their love story and have lots of beautiful children. Yet suddenly, Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik broke up - and in a rather disastrous way.

A discreet relationship

The truth is that, since they began their relationship at the end of 2015, the couple has always been discreet, keeping their personal life well, personal.

Khai was to be the first of many?

They had their first child together, little Khai, and continued to stay true to their discretion, keeping their family life private. Even though the model shared numerous photos of her little girl on social networks, her face was never seen.

Yolanda Hadid

Everything seemed to be going swimmingly: life was idyllic and wonderful and it was rumoured that the couple could soon be having another child together. But what has actually arrived is a turbulent break-up, with possible aggression mentioned and a mother-in-law, Yolanda Hadid, in the middle of it all.

No more Gigi / Zayn

'People' magazine initially reported that the couple, who were destined to dominate the celebrity world for decades to come, had broken off their relationship. There were no further details, nor were the reasons for the break-up known.

The Perfect Storm

And then came the beginnings of what would be an incredibly explosive time in the Hadid/Malik household. It was 'TMZ' that dropped the bombshell of the year: Yolanda Hadid accused Zayn Malik of pushing her into a wardrobe and critically insulting her. As luck would have it, Gigi Hadid was in Paris for work reasons.

Serious insults

According to TMZ, the dispute reportedly took place on 29 September at the home the couple share in Pennsylvania. There, Zayn Malik allegedly called Yolanda Hadid "a “f****** Dutch s***” and asked her to “stay away from [his daughter]”, in reference to little Khai.

Explanations

Zayn Malik, a man not generally known to give explanations about anything, gave them this time. The matter was serious, as Yolanda Hadid accused him of physical and psychological harm.

Private environment?

In a statement, the former 'One Direction' star denied the facts and regretted that what happened between him and his mother-in-law had not remained in a "private" environment.

"It's false"

Regarding the facts, Zayn said "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."

"Coparenting"

Now, the key element of that statement was one word: "co-parenting." The term used by separated parents to talk about bringing up their child in the best way possible. Malik denied the facts of the squabble, but confirmed the break-up. What had happened at the Malik/Hadid house?

Exemplary judgment

We didn't have to wait long to find out. Zayn Malik was brought before the judge and accepted the charges against him, four counts of harassment, a fine and 360 days probation. The singer has not disputed the charges but has not admitted them either.

Anger management and domestic violence

In addition to the sentence, he was ordered to attend an anger management course and a domestic violence course. In addition, Zayn Malik will not be allowed to have contact with Yolanda Hadid, his former mother-in-law, or the security guard he confronted in the house - something new that wasn't mentioned until the sentence.

Also against Gigi

After the trial, 'The Sun' presented new information to the public. According to the media, Zayn Malik not only verbally assaulted Yolanda Hadid but also Gigi Hadid, his ex-partner.

The last call

The singer reportedly called his daughter's mother to tell her what had happened and they ended up arguing on the phone. When they hung up, Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid were no longer a couple.

Consequences at work

The consequences for Zayn Malik, as well as personal and sentimental, have also affected his work life.

Fired

RCA, his record label in the United States, has decided to terminate his contract, as reported by 'The Sun.' The company has expressed its concern about the singer's aggression and image, but also about Zayn Malik's continued and undisguised consumption of cannabis, under the pretence of using it as a source of inspiration.

"Impossible to control"

'The Sun' also quoted "people who have worked with him," saying "they have just given up... He's almost impossible to control or guide."

Cross messages

As the days have passed, the couple's sisters have spoken out with cryptic but pretty obvious messages.

Karma?

For example, Zayn's sister Safaa Malik tweeted the word "karma" on social media.

"Work on yourself"

Meanwhile, Bella Hadid opted for a more elaborate text. "I can do nothing for you but work on myself. You can do nothing for me but work on yourself," the quote read, accompanied by an illustration of a woman sitting on the beach, staring into the sunset. She deleted it in a matter of seconds. It was too late, the world had already seen it.

And now what?

What seems clear is that Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid's history as a couple is over. It remains to be seen how this relationship will continue with a successful 'co-parenting' alliance.
