Per reports, the couple had a vile breakup after Zayn Malik physically assaulted Gigi Hadid’s mother. It caused the other fellow celebrities to react, including ‘The Problem Child’. Jake Paul took to Twitter and mocked Gigi Hadid’s former appraisal for her ex-partner, Zayn Malik.

Now, Paul has once again lashed at Malik at his presser for the Tommy Fury fight. When asked about the social media banters, Paul expressed his raw emotions and didn’t show any love for Gigi Hadid or Zayn Malik.

“He is lucky I didn’t beat his a** when we were in Vegas last time.”
