Musician Zayn Malik has pleaded no contest to charges that he harassed his girlfriend Gigi Hadid her mother Yolanda Hadid during a violent September 29 argument at the family’s home outside Philadelphia.
The former One Direction singer was accused of grabbing Yolanda Hadid and shoving her against a dresser, according to court documents.
Malik also engaged in “continuous cursing” at Yolanda Hadid, the documents said, calling her a “f****** Dutch slut” and telling her to stay away from his daughter.
Malik, 28, also told Gigi Hadid to “strap on some f***ing balls and defend your partner against your f***ing mother in my house”, according to charging documents filed in Bucks County.
Sources told TMZ that Gigi was actually in Paris, but Zayn allegedly said this to her on a phone call during the incident.
He also tried to fight a man, whom TMZ identified as a security guard, who was also at the house, the documents said.
According to the documents, Zayn screamed at the security guard: “Get the f*** out of my f***ing house copper.”
Malik entered a plea to four summary counts of harassment on Wednesday, October 27.
The plea means that Malik refused to admit guilt but accepted the punishment.
A no contest plea means Zayn won’t fight the charge in court and can be sentenced as if convicted.
But since it’s not an admission of guilt, it can’t be used to get a conviction in any other case.
A judge sentenced Zayn Malik to 90 days of probation on each count, totaling 360 days. He must complete an anger management class and a domestic violence program. He was also ordered to have no contact with Yolanda Hadid or the man.
Probation could be lifted in six months if Malik satisfies the conditions, according to documents.
This revelation comes after Zayn had taken to Twitter to address the claim he assaulted his child’s grandmother. He denied any physical contact with Yolanda Hadid but revealed in his tweet that he has agreed to not contest claims.
He wrote on Twitter: ” As you all know I am a private person and I very much want to create a safe and private place 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.”
