Zayn Malik pleads no contest in his ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid’s tiff over child support

Zayn Malik has pleaded no contest to charges of harassment and vandalism at a Los Angeles courthouse after a dispute with his ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid, according to reports from the New York Post and TMZ.

The “Pillowtalk” singer reportedly became upset when Hadid sent him some awkward photos on Snapchat and when she said he wasn’t being supportive enough about their son, co-recipient of his just-trademarked moniker. The two stars have since patched things up but according to the Post, when Malik came to court on Friday, “he pleaded no contest to four counts of vandalism and one count of criminal harassment.” He reportedly paid a fine and was placed on three years of informal probation and onzent taken to anger management classes.

Gigi and her mother, supermodel Yolanda Hadid, were at the court. Yolanda told TMZ: “Just because you are a celebrity, it doesn’t mean you get special treatment.” Malik added: “I am very sorry for what I did.”

This is the second case of celebrity scandal in the past week. Celebrity chef Mario Batali was reportedly in rehab for “personal issues” after his alleged molestation of a 16-year-old waitress last month in Las Vegas while he was drunk and “aggressively groped the woman,” according to The Daily Mail. He quickly apologized and an investigation by the local Las Vegas police came to nothing.

According to TMZ, the allegations of Malik’s harassment “stemmed from a row over Zayn receiving semi-annual payments of $30,000 from Gigi to support his son.” The Post reports that Gigi decided to stop the payments when Zayn took them to another city without her to discuss how they should be divvied up. Gigi’s mother reportedly flew out to visit her ex-boyfriend on August 1, and it’s said that Zayn agreed to pay $80,000 to cover the costs of putting the case on hold until the next payment dates.
