After his acrimonious separation from Gigi Hadid, Zayn Malik is said to have joined the plus-size dating platform WooPlus. You know what they say…the greatest way to get over an ex is to get back out there in the dating world!
According to the Daily Mail, Zayn appears to be attempting to do so by purportedly joining WooPlus. WooPlus advertises themselves on their website as “the dating app for curvaceous individuals to find and enjoy love.” “I like girls who are a touch overweight in some areas – the lovely areas,” Zayn previously told Billboard in 2016. “I prefer a woman who is more full-figured.”
Zayn goes by the name “Zed” on his alleged account, and his location is Ottaville, Philadelphia. There’s also a rumoured leaked video of him allegedly taking part in an emoji challenge on the app.
Some of you might be wondering, like I did, if this is truly Zayn. We understand that there are a lot of catfishers out there. Plus, photoshop skills and spoofing identities, including using video, are out of control these days. WooPlus, on the other hand, claims to utilise facial recognition technology to verify its users.
Despite viewing the video circulating online with their own eyes, when word of Zayn possibly being on this dating app made its way onto DeuxMoi, the pop culture I-G account tweeted that they believe the video circulating online is actually phoney. As a result, it appears that the validity of Zayn’s profile on the WooPlus dating app is still in question.
Zayn’s love life was previously in the spotlight due to his rocky breakup from Gigi and an alleged brawl with her mother Yolanda Hadid in October. According to reports, the altercation took place in Zayn’s Pennsylvania house, which he lives with Gigi and their kid Khai.
Gigi was reportedly in Paris for work, while Yolanda allegedly entered their home without Zayn’s permission. Following the events involving Zayn, Gigi, and Yolanda, the normally secretive star made the following comment on social media. “‘This was and still should be a private affair, but there appears to be divisiveness for the time being, and despite my efforts to restore us to a peaceful family situation that would allow me to co-parent my daughter in the manner she deserves, this has been ‘leaked’ to the public.”
“I am optimistic for healing for everybody affected,” he said at the end of his statement. I’ll keep an eye out for Khai and give her the privacy she deserves.” Some fans, though, may have gotten their hopes up for Zayn and Gigi reconciling in late December. Before the holidays, the couple was purportedly seen taking their daughter Khai to an aquarium in New Jersey. But, if the reports about Zayn using dating apps are true, it appears that this likely outing was simply a co-parenting excursion with Khai.
