Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid have reportedly broken up.

The former One Direction singer, 28, and supermodel, 26 have gone their separate ways according to multiple sources to PEOPLE.

The couple share a daughter together, Khai, who is 13 months old.

"They are not together right now. They are both good parents though," says a Hadid family friend.

"They co-parent. Yolanda is of course very protective of Gigi. She wants the best for her daughter and grandchild."

"Gigi is solely focused on the best for Khai. She asks for privacy during this time," Gigi's rep told PEOPLE in a statement.

It comes after Gigi's mother Yolanda alleged Zayn had "struck" her during and argument and was reportedly considering filing a police report against him.

After the allegations surfaced, Zayn told 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."

He later took to Twitter to release a statement where he said he wanted to create "a place where private family matters aren't thrown on the world stage for all to poke and pick apart," adding that the incident "was and still should be a private matter."

He added that his main focus was to protect his daughter, penning: “But it seems for now there is divisiveness and despite my efforts to restore us to a peaceful 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.

“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 and Gigi first sparked rumours of a romance between them in November 2015 when they stepped out together at an American Music Awards afterparty.

Gigi then starred in Zayn's PDA-filled music video for her 2016 single PillowTalk, and they confirmed their relationship in a May 2016 issue of Vogue.

The couple briefly broke up after nearly two years together in March 2018, but the split didn't last as they were spotted walking arm-in-arm in New York City, and then confirmed they were back together on Valentine's Day 2020.

In April 2020, the couple confirmed Gigi's pregnancy, which they had kept private during pandemic lockdowns.
