Gigi Hadid is making it clear that Zayn Malik will not be cut off from seeing his daughter, despite the major blowout between Malik and her mother, Yolanda Hadid.
Earlier this fall in September, Malik and Yolanda came head to head in an argument in which Yolanda alleges Malik grabbed her violently and pushed her against a dresser. More details are being revealed, but Gigi is keeping Khai close to her dad regardless.
Zayn Malik will still see his baby girl
Despite calling it quits, Gigi Hadid is hoping that things can be peaceful between the couple as they now learn to navigate their parenting roles separately.
A source close to Gigi spilled some details to People magazine about their break-up, and where the couple stands now following the volatile argument that ensued at their Pennsylvania home on September 29.
"Yolanda is very upset with Zayn, but Gigi has made it clear that her daughter needs her dad," the source said. "Gigi will do everything she can to make sure they co-parent in a civil way."
The fight broke out after Malik was home alone watching their daughter, Khai, when Yolanda came in uninvited to their home. This lead to the explosive argument. It was because of this that Malik threatened Yolanda and told her to "stay away from" her granddaughter.
Malik has been charged with harassment after he allegedly shoved her against a dresser causing emotional and physical harm. He was then charged with two additional counts for harassing Gigi on the phone while she was away for work, as well as their security guard, John McMahon, for allegedly trying to start a physical altercation.
Malik has vehemently denied the allegations that he struck her and pleaded no contest to the charges. He will now have to take 90 days of probation for each of the four counts and attend anger management courses.
"Yolanda is, of course, very protective of Gigi," the source said. "She wants the best for her daughter and grandchild."
According to the source, this fight had been brewing for some time, as Malik and Yolanda always had some slight tension between them.
"She has had some issues with Zayn. He has a complicated personality, and she thinks he could treat Gigi better. It's been hard at times for Gigi to live with him," they revealed.
The two are apparently trying to work amicably towards co-parenting peacefully, and working through this disheartening drama together.
