Zayn Malik appears on ‘plus size dating app after Gigi Hadid split’

Zayn Malik has signed up for a plus-size dating website following his shocking split from Gigi Hadid last year, according to reports.

The former One Direction star parted ways with the supermodel in October 2021 following his alleged argument with her mother, Yolanda Hadid.

And the 28 year old has now been linked to the dating app WooPlus that markets itself as a platform for "all people who love plus-size singles".

The app, which promises to match users with "big beautiful women", uses facial recognition to verify users' identities, with a clip of Zayn taking part in an emoji challenge being leaked online.

In the clip, the singer, who sports a thick bushy beard, can be seen smiling, winking and pulling faces to the camera while surrounded by emojis.

OK! has contacted a representative for Zayn for comment.

Zayn, who quit One Direction in 2015, previously dated Little Mix's Perrie Edwards and model Neelam Gill before his highly-publicised ill-fated romance with Gigi.

However, back in 2016, he spoke of his interest in curvier women.

Zayn told Billboard: "I like girls that are a bit chunky in certain areas – the nice areas. I like a fuller woman."

The hitmaker is now back on the dating market after his split from Gigi – with who he shares one year old daughter Khai.

Last year, Zayn made headlines with news of an altercation with Gigi's mother Yolanda, 57. He pleaded no contest to the four charges of harassment against him.

He was also sentenced to a 360-day probation, an anger management course, and was told he must have no contact with Yolanda or a security guard who witnessed the fight.

The Pillowtalk hitmaker denied the claims made against him, which included pushing the Dutch-American television personality and former model into a dresser and swearing at her.

The event took place at the home he shares with Gigi and daughter Khai in Pennsylvania, and it seemed to all start when Yolanda let herself into the couple's home, apparently without Zayn's consent.

Gigi was away treading the catwalk and modelling in Paris when it happened.

A fight and heated argument broke out with Zayn allegedly cursing at Yolanda.

Taking to social media with his side of the story, Zayn said: "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 a 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.'
