However, a rep for Gigi told E!: ‘Gigi is solely focused on the best for Khai. She asks for privacy during this time.’
In Malik’s Twitter response, he claimed that the incident was triggered by trying to ‘protect a safe space’ for one-year-old Khai.
He also cast doubt over his relationship with Gigi as he said in the statement that they will ‘co-parent’ their daughter, suggesting they may not be together at this time.
‘As you all know I am a private person and I very much want to create a safe and private safe for my daughter to grow up in,’ Malik began. 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.
Airing it out: In Zayn’s Twitter statement he expressed that he was upset the matter was ‘leaked to the press’ at put daughter Khai’s privacy at the forefront
‘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 peacefully 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.
He added: ‘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 needs.’
Zayn and Gigi had an on-again-off-again relationship beginning in 2015, and they rekindled their romance shortly before the model, 26, announced she was pregnant with their first child in the spring of 2020.

Zayn had purchased a house in bucolic Pennsylvania not far from where Yolanda resides where he and Gigi raise Khai half of the time.
In his statement he seemed to say that he felt their privacy was invaded, prompting the altercation between he and Yolanda — though he never out rightly named her.
Shortly after Yolanda’s claims were made public the reality star was spotted going for a walk in Soho solo, not far from Gigi’s penthouse.
She carried a large Christian Dior tote and was seen in all black on the outing with a large tumbler in hand.

As of Oct. 28, a police report was not filed despite sources saying it was her ‘inclination’ to file one.
The British born singer has had a string of violent outbursts in the past, but none involving Hadid family members until this alleged incident.
In June, he got into a shirtless confrontation outside of a bar in the East Village neighborhood of New York City.
A rowdy bar patron tried to pick a fight with him and hurled profanity at Zayn as he smoked a cigarette outside near the Amsterdam Billiards Club.
‘Who the f**k said anything to you?’ Zayn fired back as the man lunged at him, but the confrontation reportedly never turned physical, and police were not involved.

Zayn and Gigi: A timeline of their fiery on/off relationship
Rumors swirled that Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid are on the outs once again after reports surfaced that Zayn ‘struck’ Gigi’s mom, Yolanda, last week.
Sources told TMZ that the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is ‘seriously considering’ filing a police report to document the alleged assault.
In a statement to the publication, the One Direction member hoped to rise up the ‘divisiveness’ and ‘restore us to a peaceful family environment that will allow for me to co-parent my daughter in a manner in which she deserves.’
Zayn strongly rejected all allegations, stating: ‘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.’
Gigi and Zayn first became an item more than six years ago when they were spotted leaving Justin Bieber’s American Music Award’s after-party holding hands; seen at the Met Gala in 2016
Gigi and Zayn first became an item more than six years ago when they were spotted leaving Justin Bieber’s American Music Award’s after-party holding hands.
A source told Us Weekly in November 2015 that while they weren’t ‘boyfriend and girlfriend’ yet, they were definitely into each other.
Months later, Gigi was spotted wearing a Z necklace on her way to Paris Fashion Week as she flashed a photo of Zayn as her phone background.
Malik however denied any romance rumors during an appearance on the Beats 1 radio show and insisted the pare were just ‘good friends.’
His debut as a solo artist took a sexy turn with the video release for his first single, Pillowtalk, starring none other than Gigi. The steamy visuals were followed by a flirty online exchange, leading many to believe that their friendship was anything but platonic.
In May, they confirmed what was already assumed as they walked hand-in-hand on the red carpet at fashion’s biggest night, the Met Gala.
He explained in November how the pair met at a Victoria’s Secret party and he approached Hadid after recognizing her from ‘her picture,’ and soon took her on a date.
‘She knows how to carry herself. She’s quite classy and that. She’s not, like, arrogant in any way,’ he told ES Magazine. ‘She’s confident. She carries it well. She’s cool.’
Their romance continued to flourish, albeit mostly privately, but Gigi stepped behind the lens to snap Zayn for the Spring 2017 Versus Versace campaign.
The Italian luxury brand shared a clip on their Twitter account with Gigi asking: ‘When you’re alone, who do you want next to you?’ to which Malik smiled while replying, ‘You.’

In January, Gigi shared a romantic tribute to her boyfriend to mark his birthday. ‘Love this man more than I could ever put into words [and] am inspired by his drive to be and do better everyday,’ she wrote.
By March, though, the supermodel was singing a different tune as Gigi and Zayn called it quits sharing his-and-hers tweets to confirm the split.
All was not as it seemed as Gigi and Zayn were spotted kissing in New York City weeks after they announced their break-up, but Malik was a no-show to her 23rd birthday party in April.
In October, he made an appearance on her Instagram stories when she shared a selfie and wrote ‘flyin home to my happy place.’
New year, new Gigi. The couple called it off again, with multiple sources telling Us Weekly that their relationship was ‘over for now.’
Another insider revealed the supermodel ‘tried hard to make it work,’ but he ‘has a lot of his own issues that she couldn’t help him get through.’
Cupid’s arrow struck in the right place and the couple confirmed their romance was flourishing yet again on Valentine’s Day.
Despite remaining out of the public eye due to various lockdowns from COVID-19, Gigi revealed she was pregnant on a virtual appearance of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.
‘Obviously, we wish we could have announced it on our own terms,’ Hadid said. ‘We’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support.’
Gigi delivered Khai during a home birth in Pennsylvania in mid-September with Zayn, her mother, sister Bella, a mid-wife and the mid-wife’s assistant also on hand to help out.
