Singer Zayn Malik is spotting a new look, as he debuts a new facial hair a few weeks after splitting with his baby mama.
Singer Zayn Malik taking to his official social media handle on Friday, Jan. 14, showed off a major facial hair transformation, debuting a new beard. In a photo, Zayn’s signature scruff looked noticeably longer than usual as he rocked a pair of sunglasses from his collaboration with Arnette. He completed his ‘fit with a leather bomber jacket layered on top of a knitted sweater.
Although Zayn didn’t include a caption with his selfie, the comments section was nonetheless flooded with praise from his fans.
The post comes four months after Zayn and Gigi Hadid, with whom he shares 15-month-old daughter Khai, had called it quits. News of the split followed allegations that the “Pillowtalk” singer and Gigi’s mother, Yolanda Hadid, were involved in a family dispute.
Zayn was charged with harassment for allegedly shoving Yolanda, 58, into a dresser, “causing mental anguish and physical pain.” He pleaded no contest to the charge, and denied “striking” the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star in a statement to TMZ.
Amid the allegations, Zayn also released a social media statement that read in part: “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.”
Since their breakup, Gigi has also changed up her look. In late November, the 26-year-old supermodel reverted back to her blonde locks after going auburn earlier in the year.
However, Zayn’s latest hair transformation isn’t his first. Take a look at all the styles he’s rocked over the years in the gallery below.
