The clues Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid broke up WEEKS ago amid claims he 'struck' her mother Yolanda

ZAYN Malik and Gigi Hadid’s fans are convinced they split up weeks ago, after the singer revealed they are now “co-parenting” their daughter.

The former One Direction star, 28, revealed their relationship was over as he released a statement denying “striking” Gigi’s mum Yolanda.

US showbiz website TMZ said Yolanda Hadid, 57, has accused Zayn of an alleged assault last week.

Zayn , who has one-year-old daughter Khai with model Gigi, 26, released a post on social media, writing: "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 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."

But fans have spotted that the couple, who have been on and off since 2015, haven’t posted images images together for some time.

The couple are known for being very private but have shared glimpses into their domestic life on social media in the past.

Zayn was noticeablly absent at this year's Met Gala in September, having attended with Gigi in previous years.

Fans also noted that his statement suggested they might have been co-parenting for some time.

Gigi meanwhile has been outand about in New York with their daughter and Zayn no where in sight.

Instead she has been seen spending time with friends, including her pal Antoni Porowski just a few days ago.

One person wrote: “Not surprised that apparently gigi and zayn broke up because zayn wrote “co-parent” in his latest post so I already suspected that it.”

A second added: "Sounds like they broke up ages ago and have been co-parenting."

While a third wrote: "I knew something was off the moment Gigi not attending metgala together with zayn but not expecting this Broken heart".

The couple welcomed their first child in September 2020 following years of an on-again, off-again relationship which began in 2015.

Gigi and Zayn previously split in 2018 and again in 2019 before reconciling in 2020.

Just before they welcomed their daughter, the couple appeared to have not been together – as Gigi was dating The Bachelorette's Tyler Cameron weeks before she announced her pregnancy.

It comes after Real Housewives of Beverley Hills star Yolanda Hadid reportedly claimed Zayn Malik “struck her” during an "argument" last week.

There have not been any publicly known problems between Yolanda and Zayn before this incident.

The Dutch supermodel was seen in New York City after the news broke but stayed tight-lipped the entire time she was photographed.

Neither Gigi or her sister, Bella Hadid, 25, have spoken out about the alleged assault – but have been vocal about their close relationship with their mother.
