ZAYN Malik broke his social media silence with a new moment after joining a large community of dating following his split from Gigi Hadid.
The former One Direction star took to Instagram to share a selfie as he pouted his lips for the camera – showing off his new neck tattoo in the close-up snap.
Zayn, 28, has gone radio quiet on his social media sites after we exclusively revealed that he appears to have signed up for a new dating site.
It all happened not long after the singer broke up with slim supermodel Gigi Hadid, 26 years old.
New dad Zayn – who shares daughter Khai, one, with the model – has been linked to the site, saying it is for “all lovers of oversized singles”.
The app uses facial recognition technology to help verify a user’s identity, and a clip of Zayn taking part in the emoji challenge has leaked online.
The X Factor star has broken his silence on social media, sharing a selfie that shows the latest ink stains on his neck.
Keeping it casual in a green shirt, Zayn frowned as he pouted his lips towards the camera – as fans went wild in the comments.
He chose to post the photo without a caption – a trend he has continued in the weeks since breaking up with the supermodel.
Zayn has previously said he’s interested in women with curvaceous bodies, telling Billboard: “I like girls who are a little more polished in certain areas – pretty areas. I prefer a fuller woman. “
He split from high fashion model Gigi, 26, last October. The couple was Khai’s daughter in September 2020.
Zayn was previously named one of the UK’s top ten eligible bachelors and is reported to have assets of more than 47 million pounds.
British-Irish boy band One Direction has sold 70 million records worldwide after forming in 2010 and signed to Simon Cowell’s Syco Records label after appearing on The X Factor.
Zayn left the group six months ago when they announced an “indefinite hiatus” in 2016 and went on to live a quieter life out of the limelight.
Even in a 6-year relationship with superstar Gigi, Zayn is still in the public eye.
His last solo album, Nobody Is Listening, in 2021, failed Top Ten chart.
However, the star, who splits his time between New York and a farm in Pennsylvania, made headlines after it was alleged that he assaulted Gigi’s mother Yolanda on one consecutive occasion before they broke up last year.
Zayn hits back Yolandawho alleges the singer hit her and said: “I firmly deny hitting Yolanda Hadid and for the sake of my daughter I refuse to give any further details and I hope that Yolanda will reconsider his false accusations and move forward to mend these private matters of the family”.
He also spoke about the incident on Twitter, saying: “I have agreed not to object to statements stemming from an argument between me and a member of my partner’s family.
“Despite my efforts to restore us to a peaceful home environment that would allow me to co-parent my daughter the way she deserved, this has leaked.”
