Kicking them while they’re down.
YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul threw a jab at former rival Gigi Hadid after the model’s ex-boyfriend, Zayn Malik, allegedly hit her mom, Yolanda Hadid.
“Your ‘rEsPeCtFuL KiNg’ punched your mom in the face,” Paul, 24, wrote Friday over a retweet of Gigi’s year-old diss to him, in which she used the term “respectful king” to describe Malik.
The feud initially started in February 2020 when Paul claimed the “Pillowtalk” singer, 28, had an attitude when they met and told Paul to “f–k off for no reason” when he was just “being nice to him.”
“Zane [sic] ik you’re reading this…stop being angry cause u came home alone to ur big ass hotel room hahaha,” the social media personality added at the time.
Gigi, 26, then responded, “Lol cause he doesn’t care to hang w you and your embarrassing crew of YouTube groupies ..?
“Home alone with his best friends like a respectful king cause he has me, sweetie,” she added at the time. “Unbothered by your irrelevant ugly ass. Go to bed …”
Paul decided to reignite his feud with the fashionista nearly two years later as shocking details came out about an altercation Malik allegedly had with Yolanda, 57, last month.
Page Six learned Friday that the former One Direction member was charged with four counts of harassment for allegedly calling his ex-girlfriend’s mom a “f–king Dutch slut” and pushing her into a dresser.
He also allegedly ordered Yolanda to “stay away from [my] f–king daughter” before mentioning “the f–king sperm that came out of [his] f–king c–k” and attacking a security guard.
Malik shares a 1-year-old daughter, Khai, with Gigi, whom he dated off and on for five years.
He pleaded no contest to the charges Wednesday and said in a statement on Twitter, “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.”
As part of his plea, the former boy bander was fined and ordered to 360 days of probation. He must also complete an anger management class and a domestic violence supervision program and cannot have any contact with Yolanda or the security guard.
Gigi issued a statement through her rep Thursday that read, “Gigi is solely focused on the best for Khai. She asks for privacy during this time.”
Her spokesperson did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment on Paul’s remarks. She has not tweeted a response either.
