Zayn Malik pleads no contest to harassment charges after he allegedly 'shoved' Yolanda Hadid
Zayn Malik pleaded no contest Friday to harassment charges.
Zayn Malik pleaded no contest Friday to harassment charges after he allegedly "shoved" Gigi Hadid’s mother, Yolanda Hadid, into a dresser and hurled expletives at her, according to court records obtained by ABC News.
Malik was issued four harassment citations in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where, following his no contest plea, he was put on probation for 360 days.
He also was ordered to complete an anger management class and have no contact with Yolanda Hadid or John McMahon, a security guard who witnessed the incident.
According to the court documents, Malik allegedly called Yolanda an expletive and told her to "stay away from [his] f------ daughter."
The former One Direction singer and Gigi Hadid share 1-year-old daughter Khai.
According to the docs, Malik also allegedly told McMahon to "Get the f--- out of my f------ house copper" and also tried to engage McMahon in a fight.
The incident occurred Sept. 29 in the home Malik shared with Gigi, whom Malik subsequently told to speak up against her mother, according to court records.
Gigi Hadid's representative told ABC News in a statement, "Gigi is solely focused on the best for Khai and asks for privacy during this time."
This comes after Malik released a statement on Thursday following allegations that surfaced in a TMZ report that said he "struck" Yolanda Hadid.
In the message posted to Twitter, the singer began by saying that he’s a private person and wants to create a safe space for his daughter, but he felt the need to speak out after the accusations were "leaked" to the press.
He does not mention Yolanda by name in the post but says there was an "argument" with one of Gigi’s "family members" several weeks ago.
"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," the singer's statement continued.
He concluded, "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."
The TMZ report was later updated with a statement from Malik that said, "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."
Representatives for Yolanda Hadid and Zayn Malik have not responded to requests for comment from ABC News.
