Yolanda Hadid claims daughter Gigi's baby daddy Zayn Malik 'struck' her & RHOBH alum 'threatened to file police report'
YOLANDA Hadid reportedly claimed Zayn Malik “struck her” during an "argument" last week.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum is allegedly "seriously considering" filing a police report for the incident that happened between her and her daughter, Gigi Hadid’s, baby daddy.
According to TMZ, the encounter happened last week on the 57-year-old's ranch in Pennsylvania.
While there are not yet details of what triggered the alleged assault, the outlet confirmed Yolanda "stands by her account" of Zayn, 28, "striking" her.
"Yolanda's inclination is to file a police report," they added.
On Thursday morning, the One Direction alum posted a statement about the claims on Twitter – and how this "is and still should be" a private family matter.
He wrote in a Notes app message: “As you all know, I am a private person and I very much want to create a safe and private space for my daughter to grow up in.
“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.”
The British pop star continued: “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.
“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 deserves.”

There have not been any publicly known problems between Yolanda and Zayn before this incident.
The Dutch supermodel was seen in New York City after the news broke but stayed tight-lipped the entire time she was photographed.
Neither Gigi or her sister, Bella Hadid, 25, have spoken out about the alleged assault.
However, both have been vocal about their close relationship to their mother over the years.
Gigi, 26, and the Pillow Talk singer share one-year-old daughter, Khai, together.
The couple welcomed their first child in September 2020 following years of an on-again, off-again relationship which began in 2015.
Just before they welcomed their daughter, the couple appeared to have not been together – as Gigi was dating The Bachelorette's Tyler Cameron weeks before she announced her pregnancy.
Revealing their little girl's arrival, the lovebirds posted an Instagram picture cradling Khai while the proud parents shared a kiss.
'OUR GIRL JOINED US EARTH-SIDE'
The blonde beauty, who had kept most of her pregnancy a secret from the world, wrote on the app: "Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love," the caption said.
She also shared a sweet photo of herself holding the newborn's hand.
At the same time, Zayn posted a similar photo of his tattooed hand and wrote in the post: "Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful.
"To try put into words how I am feeling right now would be an impossible task. The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding.
"Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, & thankful for the life we will have together x."
Yolanda also penned a heartwarming note to her first granddaughter, saying: "My heart is expending with so much love and joy for this little baby girl she is an angel sent to us from above….," Yolanda wrote.
"Thank you Mommy & Daddy for making me a Oma, I love every minute of it."
