Gigi and Bella Hadid Amid Family Tensions: How’s their relationship?

The sisters have stuck by each other’s side. Gigi and Bella Hadid have gotten closer in the past few months.

Gigi Hadid Is Reportedly ‘Done With Zayn’ and Leaning on Bella Hadid Amid Family Tension

“This has not been easy on Gigi and has caused a lot of stress on relationships with her family,” a source claims.

Gigi Hadid has reportedly “grown closer” with her sister Bella Hadid following her alleged split from Zayn Malik.

Toward the end of October, allegations arose that Zayn struck the model’s mother, Yolanda Hadid, during an argument at the couple’s Pennsylvania home while Gigi was away in Paris in September. On October 28, Zayn shared a Twitter statement about the altercation just before TMZ broke the news:

“As you all know, I am a private person, and I very much want to create a safe and private space for my daughter to grow up in. A place where private family matters aren’t thrown on the world stage for all to poke and pick apart. In an effort to protect that space for her I agreed to not contest claims arising from an argument I had with a family member of my partner’s who entered our home while my partner was away 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. 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.”

Zayn also gave an official statement to TMZ at the time: “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 toward healing these family issues in private.”

Despite denying physically assaulting Yolanda, court documents reviewed by TMZ and elle.com confirmed that Malik pleaded no contest to at least one charge of harassment against the Hadids. According to TMZ, Malik will pay a fine and is “on 90 days probation for each count, totaling 360 days.” On top of the fine, Malik reportedly “must complete an anger management class and a domestic violence program.” (You can read more details about the charges here.)

According to a source who recently spoke with People in December, Gigi Hadid has been leaning on her younger sister throughout the ordeal. “Gigi and Bella have grown closer since the Zayn and Yolanda incident,” the source said. “Bella has stuck by her side, as the situation has caused a lot of tension within the family.”

The source continued by confirming previous reports that Zayn and Gigi have broken up, but continue to coparent their 15-month-old daughter, Khai. “Gigi is done with Zayn. She’s a really private person, so Bella has really been there to support her,” the source continued. “It’s been tough on all of them because they’re all so close. That’s her mom, but it’s still her baby’s father, even though their romantic relationship is over.”

They added, “This has not been easy on Gigi and has caused a lot of stress on relationships with her family.”

Back in October a rep for Gigi told People, “Gigi is solely focused on the best for Khai. She asks for privacy during this time.”

Bella and Gigi Hadid Have “Grown Closer” Since Zayn Malik Altercation

The supermodel sisters’ bond has reportedly grown following the altercation between their mom Yolanda Hadid and Gigi’s ex-boyfriend Zayn Malik last September.

A source close to the Hadid family told People, “Gigi and Bella have grown closer since the Zayn and Yolanda incident. Bella has stuck by her side, as the situation has caused a lot of tension within the family.”

Malik was charged with four counts of harassment after an alleged physical incident in which he “caused [Yolanda] mental anguish and physical pain,” per court documents. News broke in October that Gigi and Malik had broken up after the altercation.

“Gigi is done with Zayn. She’s a really private person, so Bella has really been there to support her,” the source continued. “It’s been tough on all of them because they’re all so close. That’s her mom, but it’s still her baby’s father, even though their romantic relationship is over.” “This has not been easy on Gigi and has caused a lot of stress on relationships with her family,” they added.

The singer pleaded no contest to the harassment counts in October, though he has denied any physical contact with Yolanda Hadid. He was required to serve 90 days of probation for each count, and complete an anger management class and a domestic violence program.

Gigi’s rep told People in October that the model was focusing on what was best for her and Malik’s one-year-old daughter Khai. “Gigi is solely focused on the best for Khai. She asks for privacy during this time,” read the statement.

Bella Dispels Sibling Rivalry

IT might be easy to assume that, when you’re working in the same industry as your sibling, a certain amount of jealousy and competition comes with the territory, but it seems that that isn’t the case for Bella Hadid and older sister and fellow model, Gigi.

“We’re definitely a lot more similar than people think. We have the same voice, the same mannerisms. Sometimes we’ll finish each other’s sentences, or we’ll be the only people laughing,” 19-year-old Bella revealed to Glamour. “We’ve always been close. As kids, especially on weekends, our mum would drive us to the barn at 6.30am, and we would spend the day together riding our horses, and washing and cleaning them.”

Dispelling the rumour that she dyed her hair to differentiate herself from her fair-haired sister, Hadid disclosed that following in her sister’s fashionable footsteps felt like a natural step.

“Gigi [who’s a year older] had already started modelling when I moved to New York to study photography. I met with [her agency] IMG. I started modelling and was working almost every day, learning more with photographers on set than I was in school.”

The model, who appeared in Olivier Rousteing’s sibling-focused campaign for Balmain with her sister last year, also addressed the supermodel debate that began following Stephanie Seymour jokingly referring to Gigi and her friend Kendall Jenner as “Bitches of the moment” in June.

“It’s crazy. I’ve worked with Stephanie before and loved her; she was sweet to me,” she said. “I don’t know if she meant it in that mean way. But even so, it’s still hurtful. My sister and Kendall work their asses off. We’re all working hard. You just have to let your success speak for itself…because at the end of the day, we’re making our money.”

Her older sister wasn’t the only one that Hadid – who was named Model of The Year at the Daily Front Row’s Fashion LA Awards in March – had high praise for, she also spoke about her relationship with boyfriend Abel Tesfaye (aka The Weeknd) and about making their red-carpet debut as a couple at this year’s Grammys.

“It was a big night for him. He has worked so hard, and he did so well that night. As a girlfriend I wanted to be there to support him. Seeing him so happy when he won a Grammy made me so happy,” Hadid revealed.
