Bella Hadid Posts (Then Deletes) Cryptic Post Amid Zayn Malik Controversy

Bella Hadid’s latest Instagram Story may or may not shed some light on her thoughts amid her sister’s reported split from Zayn Malik.

On October 28, the supermodel posted—and then deleted—a quote from the Instagram account @mystics_truth. “I can do nothing for you but work on myself. You can do nothing for me but work on yourself,” the post read underneath an illustration of a naked woman sitting thoughtfully on the beach. (You can see Bella Hadid’s since-deleted story here.)

This post comes after allegations arose that Zayn struck the model’s mother, Yolanda Hadid, during an argument at Gigi Hadid and Zayn’s Pennsylvania home back in September while Gigi was away in Paris. On October 28, Zayn shared a Twitter statement about the altercation just before TMZ broke the news:

“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 the poke and pick apart. In an effort to protect that space for her, I agreed not to 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. This was and still should be a private matter, but it seems for now there is divineness, and despite my efforts to restore us to a peaceful family environment that will allow for me to co-parent my daughter in a matter 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.” 

Zayn also gave an official statement to TMZ: “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.”

Despite denying physically assaulting Yolanda, court documents reviewed by TMZ and confirmed that Malik pled no contest to at least one charge of harassment against the Hadids. According to TMZ, Malik will pay a fine and is “on 90 days probation for each count, totaling 360 days.” On top of the fine, Malik reportedly “must complete an anger management class and a domestic violence program.” (You can read more details about the charges here.) 

On October 28, People reported that Zayn and Gigi have broken up, but continue to co-parent their 13-month-old daughter, Kai. “They are not together right now. They are both good parents, though,” a Hadid family friend told People. “They co-parent. Yolanda is, of course, very protective of Gigi. She wants the best for her daughter and grandchild.”

A rep for Gigi told People, “Gigi is solely focused on the best for Khai. She asks for privacy during this time.”
