Zayn Malik does not want anyone spewing hate on his ex-girlfriend.
After posting a series of angry tweets earlier this week, E! News reported that singer Zayn Malik hopped back on Twitter on Thursday later to defend his ex, Gigi Hadid, after fans began speculating his cryptic posts were about his former love.
“My tweet was not about @GigiHadid so leave her the f**k alone,” the “Pillow Talk” singer wrote on the social media platform. “She is the most amazing woman I’ve ever known.”
“And does nothing but love and support me when lord knows I don’t deserve it,” he added.
His tirade didn’t stop there. In a third tweet, the former One Direction band member told his followers to “at” him so he can put them “the f**k” straight, and told them to “shut [their] f**king mouth” if they don’t know anything.
Zayn’s defense of his on-again, off-again girlfriend comes after a series of three tweets sent out on Wednesday, April 3, and accused someone of not being “the person you said you were” in the last of his posts.
The 26-year-old’s short rant left many of his 28.3 million followers confused as to who his messages were directed toward. Some, however, were quick to assume that he was taking aim at the 23-year-old supermodel, especially after rumors began churning that she has allegedly started dating Selena Gomez’s ex-boyfriend, Samuel Krost.

As E! News noted, shortly after Zayn’s tweet storm in her honor on Thursday, Gigi herself logged in to her own account to set the record straight.
If you outlets are going to continue writing bs headlines every time I’m seen with a friend of the male gender then there’s gunna be a lot of unneeded confusion ????????????????♀️— Gigi Hadid (@GiGiHadid) April 4, 2019
Despite splitting up a few months ago for the second time in their rocky relationship that spans more than three years, it is no surprise that Zayn was quick to clap back at his ex’s haters. The stars still appear to be on good terms, and Gigi has even been spotted going to and from the solo artist’s New York apartment a handful of times since their most recent breakup in January.
“Gigi and Zayn still talk,” a source revealed to Us Weekly last week. “She still has feelings for him, of course, but he has major issues an she knows they aren’t compatible.”
And while their post-split encounters, coupled with a few more recent tweets from the singer, got many “Zigi” fans hoping that the pair had rekindled their romance yet again, the source confirmed that the catwalk queen is “still very single.”
