He said he agreed not to contest claims regarding an argument he had with Hadid’s family member (her mother, Yolanda Hadid, according to reports) a few weeks ago while his partner was away. “This was and still should be a private matter…,” he said.
In January 2019, the couple had broken up but got back together by the end of the year. The couple began dating in November 2015.
