Zayn Malik's Exes Speak on Gigi Hadid Relationship: Quotes – J-14Relationship
Got a Hot tip?
Moving on! Zayn Malik‘s ex-girlfriends had nothing bad to say about his relationship with Gigi Hadid over the years. Some of the One Direction alum’s former flames have gotten real about his tumultuous romance with the model.
Enrica Petrongari — whom Zayn was romantically linked to in 2018 despite never confirming rumors — revealed in November 2021 that he “seemed happy” with Gigi.
“He texted me months ago saying he was happy about his new life and his daughter [Khai]. He always talked very well about Gigi, so, it’s weird,” Enrica told In Touch. “We texted each other as friends, but no, we haven’t had physical contact.”
Enrica’s comments came amid news that Zayn and Gigi had split in October 2021 after an incident involving the model’s mom, Yolanda Hadid. The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star alleged that Zayn “struck” her, which he has adamantly denied.
The “Pillowtalk” singer pleaded no contest to four counts of summary harassment following the incident, which occurred in September 2021. Zayn was fined, put on 360 days of probation (90 for each count), was ordered to stay away from Yolanda and complete anger management classes and a domestic violence program.
At the time, Us Weekly confirmed that Zayn and Gigi had broken up amid the ongoing drama. A source told the publication that the pair “silently separated,” noting “they’d been having problems for a while.”
Gigi and Zayn first started dating in 2015, and experienced some ups and downs during their long-term love. After three years together, their first split occurred in March 2018. Shortly thereafter, they rekindled their relationship and split again in January 2019. A year later, news broke in January 2020 that they had reunited once again. Months later, Gigi announced that she and Zayn were gearing up to welcome their first child together.
“Obviously, we wish we could’ve announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support,” she shared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in April 2020.
Gigi gave birth to Khai in September 2020. Since then, she has given fans a glimpse into her and Zayn’s life as first-time parents via social media, despite their decision to keep Khai’s face off social media. “I have friends who are public figures and that’s how they’ve gone about it, and I see their kids really blossom in a different way,” Gigi shared during an interview with Vogue in the March 2021 issue.

“Sometimes we just text each other from time to time but I have not seen him,” Enrica also told In Touch. In the same interview, she alleged how they first met.
“I started to work for him because I’m an orthopedic medical massage therapist in New York,” she claimed. “The agency asked me to work at his house and said it was a celebrity but I didn’t know who it was. So, I went there and everything was fine and then step-by-step we got closer, and he started to text me all the time to come over.”
Reps for Zayn did not immediately respond to J-14‘s request for comment.

Zayn briefly dated the singer amid their X Factor days in 2011. She appeared to speak about Gigi’s pregnancy with a British publication in July 2020.
“I’m really mindful about what I say, for Gigi. If I was pregnant, I’d never want to hear my baby father’s ex talking about me and my pregnancy,” Rebecca shared. “So all I’ll say is, any baby news is good news because it means a lovely little life is coming into the world. I don’t want to disrespect Gigi on their lovely relationship.”

While the singer did not ever explicitly address Zayn’s relationship with Gigi, the singer declared in April 2020 that she was “having the time of my life” amid her ex’s pregnancy news.
“I’ve never spent so much time with my boyfriend, I’ve never spent so much time in my house, and I’ve never had so much time on my hands just to do stuff that I’ve always wanted to do,” Perrie shared on The Kyle & Jackie O Show. “So it has been nice, but I’m losing track of what day it is.”
As fans know, the Little Mix member was engaged to Zayn from 2013 until their split in 2015.
