A source told The Sun “Zayn is having a hard time right now and his family just want him to return home to Bradford."
"For Zayn’s mum, she is having to watch her son struggle thousands of miles away and it is really difficult for her," the insider explained. “A mother’s instinct is to protect her child and that is all she wants for Zayn."
"They are hopeful he will be able to come home at some point so they can spend time with him," the source told the outlet about the pop singer's family back home.
Following the alleged dispute, Malik and Gigi — who share one-year-old daughter Khai — decided to go their separate ways with a source spilling the couple are now "split for good."
As OK! previously reported, Yolanda and the "Better" singer's rift reportedly began when the Believe Me author "barged" into the her daughter's Pennsylvania home while she was out of town and Malik was spending time with their daughter.
Insiders close to the star dished that Malik felt that Yolanda did not respect his position as Gigi's boyfriend and her granddaughter's father after making it clear he did not want anyone in the house at the time.
The tension between the two had been brewing for some time as Malik and Yolanda had been at odds reportedly over the former model sharing photos and maintaining the little girl's privacy.
