Yolanda Foster Talks Gigi Hadid & Zayn Malik Rumors & Her Response Is Pretty Telling

While it may seem like Gigi Hadid's career skyrocketed out of nowhere this year, loyal fans remember that Hadid first got her start on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. That's because her mother, Yolanda Foster, stars on the show. It's no secret that Hadid and Foster are incredibly close, just like the rest of their famous family. So what better person to ask about Gigi Hadid's rumored relationship with Zayn Malik? After all, as the saying goes, "Mothers know best." In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Yolanda Foster weighed in on the Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik rumors. Foster said,

Gigi's 20 years old, loving life, shopping like she should. I haven't met him yet, so I can't say anything about him.

While this quote may not directly address the Zayn Malik rumors, Yolanda Foster's response is still pretty telling. Essentially, she's saying that her daughter is free to live her life and date whoever she wants — without being tied down. It's a perfect answer, since she doesn't confirm the rumors, but doesn't deny them either. Still, since Yolanda Foster and Gigi Hadid are a close mother-daughter duo, I'd have to think if things did get serious with Malik, Hadid would introduce the guy to her mom. So for now, I'm taking this to mean that whatever is going on between the Victoria's Secret model and former One Direction member, it's not anything super serious.

I also appreciate that Yolanda Foster wasn't quick to jump to assumptions about Malik. People can be quite opinionated about celebrities (especially ones with a bad boy rep), but Foster said she's not going to say anything until she meets him. Another key part of her quote? The word "yet," which means even though Foster hasn't officially been introduced, it may happen in the future.

Regardless of what the future holds for Hadid and Malik, let's keep in mind that a source told E! News a few weeks ago, "They are just friends and are casually hanging out. She is not looking to jump into another relationship so soon." To me, that means that fans shouldn't get too excited about ZiGi shipping just yet. Plus, Hadid summed up the whole situation perfectly on her Twitter account. Last week, she posted a one-word tweet that speaks volumes.

Got it? Everyone can chill out about the dating rumors and let Hadid live her life. She's young and not settling down anytime soon.
