Before Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid, there was Zayn and Perrie Edwards. The Little Mix singer was extremely close to the former One Direction star's family, including his younger sister, Safaa Malik. While the Malik family obviously supports the Bradford Bad Boy and his relationship choices, his 13-year-old sister has been accused of throwing major shade at the model.

When Zayn's other sister, Waliyha Malik, posted a photo of their cousin, Sarooha Malik, on Instagram, fans started comparing her to Gigi. After a lot of comments, Safaa wrote, "She does not look like that girl at all lol."
Her use of the phrase "that girl" sounds really sassy, right? However, Safaa was forced to defend herself in the comments.
When someone insinuated that Safaa called Gigi "that girl," she responded, clarifying that she was talking about Andrea Russett, who Sarooha was also being compared to in the comments. Zayn's baby sister also says that she actually does follow her brother's girlfriend on Instagram.
In the end, Safaa posted a message about her cousin, writing, "My beautiful sister Sarooha???❤️I love her so much. My most fave person in the world?." (They're very close, which is why she calls Sarooha her "sister.")
It's clear that this is merely a case of confusing comments, but it caused a lot of drama! Plus, Safaa can still love Perrie and support her brother's current relationship. There doesn't necessarily have to be any bad blood.
