Gigi's Father's Day tribute came about months after Malik was charged with four counts of harassment after an incident in September 2021 involving the star's mother, Yolanda Hadid.

Malik allegedly "grabbed [Yolanda] and shoved her into a dresser, causing mental anguish and physical pain," according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE. Malik "adamantly" denied striking her, however, telling TMZ in a statement: "I hope that Yolanda will reconsider her false allegations and move towards healing these family issues in private."

Having pleaded no contest to the charges, Malik is required to serve 90 days of probation for each of the four counts; he must also complete an anger management class and a domestic violence program and is barred from having contact with Yolanda.

Following the alleged altercation between Malik and Yolanda, 58, Gigi and the "Pillow Talk" musician ended their romantic relationship, multiple sources confirmed to PEOPLE in October. "They are not together right now. They are both good parents though," said a Hadid family friend. "They co-parent. Yolanda is of course very protective of Gigi. She wants the best for her daughter and grandchild."
