Gigi Hadid wasted no time in responding to Jake Paul’s accusations about her on-again-off-again boyfriend, singer-songwriter Zayn Malik.
In a tweet sent early Sunday, the younger of the two Paul brothers tweeted about an interaction he had with the “Pillowtalk” singer, misspelling his name throughout the tweet.
“Almost had to clap up zane from 1 direction because he is a little guy and has an attitude and basically told me to f—-off for no reason when I was being nice to him,” Paul tweeted. “Zane [if] you’re reading this… stop being angry cause u came home alone to ur big ass hotel room hahaha.”
About two hours later, Malik’s supermodel girlfriend chimed in, clapping back against Paul’s confusing accusations.
"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. Unbothered by your irrelevant ugly a--. Go to bed," Hadid tweeted at about 4:43 a.m. Pacific Standard Time.
