Zayn Malik has vowed to do everything he can to avoid a custody battle over his daughter with Gigi Hadid.
Hadid and Malik have reportedly ended their relationship amid claims that the former One Direction member ‘struck’ Gigi’s mom Yolanda Hadid, 57 during an altercation.
And the 28-year-old singer is ‘deeply concerned’ about his family’s future after the dispute while he reportedly plans to ‘fight’ to avoid a custody battle over his and Gigi’s 13-month-old Khai.
‘Gigi and he co-parent Khai, but any suggestion he has aggression issues or cannot be trusted to care for her, is something he will fight against with every ounce of his body.’ a source said.
The model allegedly wanted “him to co-parent, but her mother could potentially make legal moves within the court systems about custody.”
The source claimed she “had urged Zayn to get therapy before they split and wanted him to deal with his issues.”
Taking to Twitter, Zayn said, “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.”
He continued, “In an effort to protect that space for her I agreed to not contest claims arising from an argument that I had with a family member of my partner’s who entered our home while my partner was away several weeks ago.”
