Gigi Hadid's dad Mohamed breaks silence after Yolanda Hadid claims daughter's baby daddy Zayn Malik ‘struck’ her

GIGI Hadid's dad Mohamed Hadid, has spoken out in support of his daughter amid the controversy surrounding her baby daddy, Zayn Malik.

The multimillionaire property developer broke his silence to say he 'simply loves' his supermodel daughter, Gigi, and Khai – her baby with Zayn.

Sharing a series of red carpet shots of Gigi rocking different looks on Instagram, Mohamed gushed over his oldest daughter with ex-wife, Yolanda Hadid.

Mohamed captioned the post: "simply love you my daughter and I am so proud of you ..Babba of @gigihadid and Jido of Khai."

Babba in Mohamed's native Arabic means dad, while jido means grandfather.

His bold statement comes after Yolanda allegedly claimed the One Direction singer “struck” her during an argument – which he has since vehemently denied. 

Yesterday, TMZ first reported that Yolanda is accusing Zayn of “striking” her during an “argument” last week on her 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 "striking" her.

"Yolanda's inclination is to file a police report," they added.

The former X Factor contestant flat-out denied becoming violent during his interaction.

He told the publication: "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.”

On Thursday morning, the I Don't Wanna Live Forever crooner posted a similar 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.”

Speaking for the first time about the incident, the model's rep told People: “Gigi is solely focused on the best for Khai. She asks for privacy during this time."

It was also revealed the couple broke up which was caused by “tension” which first stemmed from the singer allegedly accusing Yolanda of “leaking” the couple’s pregnancy news last year, a source exclusively told The Sun. 

Prior to Zayn, 28, and Gigi, 26, publicly revealing they were expecting their first child together in April of last year, Yolanda, 57, “liked” social media posts that discussed the pregnancy speculation. 

The Dutch supermodel also told a Netherlands broadcasting station, RTL Boulevard: “Of course we are so excited. I am excited to become Oma in September especially after I lost my mom so recently,” which solidified the news.

A rep for Yolanda did not respond to The Sun’s request for comment. 

Gigi and Zayn welcomed their daughter, Khai, in September 2020 after five years of on-again-off-again dating.
