Zayn Malik opened up about his current relationship status in a new interview.

“I am really content and happy with being single for the first time in my life,” he said.

The 31-year-old singer continued, “It’s not been too successful for me, I’ll be honest. Everyone accused me of catfishing. They’re like, ‘What are you using Zayn Malik’s pictures for?’ I’ve been kicked off once or twice.”

However, the dating apps fiasco has led him to a place of contentment and introspection.

“I lived a very chill life in Bradford. I never really had a girlfriend. My parents were kind of old-school, so I never brought a girlfriend home or anything,” he said, “When I got the chance to do that, I jumped straight in, two feet first, and was like, ‘I’m going to have a girlfriend, and she’s going to live with me. This makes me a grown man,’” Zayn added as he established that he no longer seeks companionship for the same reasons that were appealing at some point.

The singer also opened up about his previous relationships, including his on-and-off romance with ex Gigi Hadid.

“From 21 to 27, I was with Gi, and we had a kid, and I didn’t really take much time to get to know myself,” Malik said. The former couple welcomed their first child together, a daughter they named Khai, in September 2020. They broke up the following year. Hadid is now romantically linked to Bradley Cooper.

When it comes to spending time with Khai, Zayn said, “I only have my daughter 50 percent of the time. I would have her 90 percent if I could. We go see Disney on Ice or we go see the Nickelodeon theme park. Or we go to the beach. That’s how I get out.”
