News broke on Thursday that Yolanda Hadid accused Zayn Malik of striking her. The former One Direction member and X Factor UK contestant denied it.
Now, TMZ reports that Zayn was charged with crimes against his partner Gigi and Yolanda Hadid and ended up copping a plea.
Zayn was charged with 4 criminal offenses of harassment and, although one official document says he pled guilty to one, court officials tell us he actually pled no contest.
According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Zayn was at Gigi and Zayn’s Pennsylvania home on Sept. 29 and got into an explosive argument. He allegedly called Yolanda a “f*****g Dutch sl*t,” ordered her to “stay away from [my] f*****g daughter.” He said this, although it’s hard to know why, “the f*****g sperm that came out of [my] f*****g c***.”
He then allegedly “shoved her [Yolanda] into a dresser causing mental anguish and physical pain.” Zayn denies any physical contact.
As for the charge that he harassed Gigi, the mother of his young daughter, according to court docs, he screamed at her, “strap on some f*****g balls and defend your partner against your f*****g mother in my house.” Sources tell TMZ that Gigi was actually in Paris, but Zayn allegedly said this to her on a phone call during the incident.
There was a security guard on hand, and according to the documents, Zayn screamed, “Get the f*** out of my f*****g house copper.” The documents say Zayn tried to fight the guard.
Zayn pled no contest Wednesday (Oct. 27) to harassment and was fined, but with conditions. He’s on 90 days probation for each count, totaling 360 days. He also must complete an anger management class and a domestic violence program. He must have no contact with Yolanda or the security guard.
Assuming all conditions are satisfied after 6 months, the judge could terminate probation.
Additionally, TMZ reports, Zayn and Gigi broke up around the time of the incident. They share a 1-year-old daughter together.
