AceShowbiz - Jake Paul has weighed in on Zayn Malik's dispute with Yolanda Hadid. Having previously come into conflict with the former One Direction member, the YouTube star has blasted the "Dusk Till Dawn" crooner as "lunatic" and "a**holes."
The social media personality was strolling through a hotel lobby in Las Vegas when he was asked his two cents on Zayn's drama. "That guy's a f**king lunatic," he told TMZ. "He needs help-he needs to go to rehab, all that s**t."
Claiming that he knew Zayn had a temper problem since their feud, the 24-year-old insisted, "And I called it since day one. The guy's a complete a**hole and of course, he punches Gigi's mom. … He punched her in the face or some s**t bro. That guy's a d**khead. … He's lucky I didn't beat his a** last time we were here in Vegas last time."
Asked if he's keen on having a boxing match with Zayn, Jake responded, "Nah, he needs to box his f**king demons first. … I don't want to squash s**t [with Gigi Hadid and Zayn]. I don't got no problems. Just people are a**holes. Truth always comes out."
Jake was involved in an altercation with Zayn in 2020. At the time, the brother of Logan Paul reportedly asked if Zayn was going to party, and Zayn responded, "IDGAF if you have a good night." Zayn allegedly also screamed at Jake, "Who the f*** do you think you are?" The father of one even challenged Jake, asking if he wanted to "test" him.
As for his dispute with Yolanda, it was alleged that he "grabbed and shoved her into a dresser" when Gigi's mother visited his place while the 26-year-old model wasn't home. He denied that he ever laid a hand on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" alum, though he eventually pled no contest to the four criminal charges of harassment against him.
He said he did not contest the assault allegations in order 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." He has been fined for the harassment and is on 90 days' probation for each count, making a total of 360 days. He will also have to complete an anger management class, and a domestic violence program.
