As for the charge that he harassed Gigi, the 28-year-old allegedly screamed at her after she failed to stick up for him against her mom. "Strap on some f***ing balls and defend your partner against your f***ing mother in my house," he shouted, according to the court documents.

An insider with direct knowledge reportedly told the outlet the model was in Paris when the altercation went down, with Malik allegedly screaming at her on a phone call.

OK! reported the former couple — who share 1-year-old daughter Khai — broke up around the time of the incident due to ongoing tension between Malik and Yolanda. (Gigi's former beau allegedly accused the former reality star of leaking their pregnancy news last year.)

After Yolanda claimed Malik "struck her" during an argument, the musician addressed the incident in a statement. "As you all know I am a private person and I very much want to create a safe and private safe for my daughter to grow up in," he wrote via Twitter on Thursday, October 29.

"A place where private family matters aren’t thrown on the world stage for all to poke and pick apart," the statement continued. "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."
