The sister of singer Zayn Malik, Waliyha Malik, is hitting back at YouTuber Jake Paul after the influencer-turned-boxer slammed Gigi Hadid amid ongoing harassment allegations against Zayn.
Former One Direction member Zayn Malik and supermodel Gigi Hadid have officially parted ways amid accusations that Malik allegedly struck Hadid’s mother, Yolanda Hadid.
While Malik has claimed that he did not hit Yolanda, he plead no contest to four counts of harassment and was sentenced to 360 days probation. The couple have since split apart, although they remain firm co-parents for their daughter, Khai.
This altercation brought up an old beef between YouTuber Jake Paul and Malik. In February 2020, Paul called out the singer on Twitter, claiming Malik had “basically told me to f**k off for no reason when I was being nice to him.”

This prompted a short spat with Hadid, who told Paul that Malik didn’t “care to hang with you and your embarrassing crew of YouTube groupies” and called her now ex-boyfriend a “respectful king.”
A year later, amid the ongoing harassment claims against Malik, Paul lashed out at Hadid again, writing: “Your ‘rEsPeCtFuL KiNg’ punched your mom in the face.”

Zayn Malik’s sister calls out Jake Paul amid Gigi Hadid drama
This interaction didn’t go unnoticed by Malik’s family. Zayn’s sister, Waliyha, made a biting comment toward Jake and his father, Greg Paul, in a scathing Instagram stories callout.
In her post, Waliyha shared our September 2018 report covering allegations that Greg Paul had purportedly engaged in inappropriate activity with underage girls, although these accusations have not been confirmed.
Sharing a screenshot of the report, Waliyha wrote: “Instead of making TikToks about other people and their lives, you obsessed beg, how about you make a TikTok about your own family matters? But then again, no one gives a f**k about your irrelevant arse.”
Waliyha is referencing another callout post Jake made toward Malik, which he uploaded to TikTok. In the video, the influencer laughs at the ongoing allegations against Malik, writing, “How the turns have tabled” (a reference to The Office).

Thus far, Paul has yet to respond to Waliyha. In the meantime, it seems like Zayn and Hadid’s relationship is officially in the books as the ex-couple negotiates custody of their daughter with lawyers.
