Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but things aren't looking too good for #Zigi. The couple recently made headlines after an explosive family dispute leaked online - but from the looks of it? This feud is just heating up. Here's what Gigi had to say for herself...

On Thursday, October 28, the model spoke out for the first time after news broke of trouble in paradise: "Gigi is solely focused on the best for Khai. She asks for privacy during this time," her rep revealed to E! News. But that might have just left us with even more questions...

What really went down on the Hadid farm? Are Gigi and Zayn still going steady? According to Zayn, maybe not: "This was and still should be a private matter, but it seems for now there is divisiveness... despite my efforts to restore us to a peaceful family environment," the former One Direction star shaded. But the biggest thing that stood out to us? His use of "co-parent" - was he saying what we think he was saying?

We know - it's a lot to process. But where did it all go wrong? In case you forgot, the rumors first sparked when TMZ opened the lid on an apparent feud between Zayn and Gigi's mom, Yolanda. As they reported, Yolanda had claimed Malik had struck her at their home and was even considering filing a police report. (Yes, really.)

Well, folks, a whole lot has changed since then: according to recent court documents obtained by TMZ, Yolanda has officially taken her dispute public by filing a report. As her statement alleged, the two were at #Zigi's Pennsylvania home on September 29 when an explosive argument ensued: not only did Zayn allegedly hurl expletives at Hadid, but apparently he proceeded to "shove her into a dresser, causing mental anguish and physical pain."

While Malik has since maintained his innocence, he's officially been charged with 4 criminal offenses - including 1 harassment charge from Gigi. (Apparently he became aggressive with her after the incident.) Clearly there's still lots of tea to be spilled here, and we wish this family (including baby Khai, of course) nothing but the best.

Stay tuned while this story develops.
