Zayn Malik has been making headlines lately for his new-found relationship with Gigi Hadid, but today, his name is in the news for a much sadder reason. It is with heavy hearts that we report that the 22-year-old singer’s grandmother has passed away.
We don’t know many details regarding his grandma’s death, but Zayn took to Twitter to talk about the “beautiful person” that she was.
Thank you for your support and love .. My grandma was a beautiful person and will be missed dearly x
