The news jumped in 2021 and caused a real media stir.
Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid
Zayn explained his attitude after what happened, a situation in which he maintained scrupulous silence without responding to comments and speculation for months.
“I don’t usually get involved with what is said about me on social networks. The most valuable thing is time, and trying to explain something to others and justify yourself takes a lot of time, so I decided to keep it for myself. He knew what the situation was, what happened and what people were involved. It’s all that mattered to me. If anyone in their right mind experiences the situation, I think they can respect that I did not want to focus on the problem or have a fight with her (Yolanda) or talk about something that my daughter could read in the future. I managed it in the best way and in a respectful way. That’s all I can say about it,” he said.
“We have a very good relationship because of Khai. She is the most important thing, so she is doing well,” he explained.
The ex-partner tries to maintain the privacy of her little girl and does not usually share images of her on her profiles, in fact it was said that the fight Zayn had with her mother-in-law was because she shared an image of the girl.
“She did not choose to be a public figure. I want to give her the choice to be away from all of this. I will support what she wants to do in life.”
His departure from One Direction
Zayn was the first to leave the boyband One Direction, a group that was a true phenomenon between 2010 and 2015. It was that year when Malik left the band, which would end up dissolving.
“We were so overexposed in the band that’s why I took my time. We spend five years of our lives together, day after day, and we get fed up with the rest, to be honest. We were united. We did things together that no one in the world would ever understand or even experience, and I look back on it with a better feeling than when I left it. There were great experiences, I lived incredible moments with them, but yes, our time has passed,” said Zayn.
The singer had not referred to the separation of the group, which his colleagues have talked about over the years. Now Zayn recognizes that he wanted to do other things, apart from the band, that’s why he made the decision to leave.
“To be honest, I left there completely selfishly. I wanted to be the first to make my own record. When it comes to music, I’m very serious and competitive.”
The singer is preparing a new album, the fourth of his career, which comes with this aperitif in the form of a single, Love Like This, which opens on July 21.
