"I adamantly deny striking Yolanda Hadid," he said, "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."

His other statement also noted that he believed the matter should have been kept private.

Zayn and Gigi have been one of the most prominent couples of showbiz. 

Back in 2016, Zayn had explained the reasons that drew him towards Gigi. 

"When I learn something from somebody and they teach me something, that's an attractive thing for me," he said in an interview. "Obviously, I find physical appearance attractive as well, but it's definitely squared more towards a personality as I've gotten older, because you can't have a long-term relationship unless you get on with the person. It doesn't matter really about the exterior."

Gigi, too have raved about his intellect and cooking.

When she was asked what was her favourite thing about him, the model said, "I would say his brain. For the first time, we are both in a relationship where we have similar interests outside of work and that is really important. We cook a lot together and do art together and we're each other’s best friends. We both feel we can talk about anything and learn a lot from each other."
