Zayn Malik, the 31-year-old singer known for his hit “Vibez,” recently took to Instagram to reassure fans about his well-being after a video circulated on social media showing a car seemingly running over his foot in Paris.
Following his appearance at Kenzo’s Fall/Winter 2024 event at Paris Fashion Week, Malik posted, “@kenzo @nigo Thanks for a great show. My foot is fine!! Thanks to my incredibly well made shoes 😂👍🏼.”
In his Instagram post, the former One Direction member shared a picture of himself sporting his signature quiff hairstyle, a snapshot from inside the fashion show, and a photo of his white Kenzo sneaker with visible black scuff marks.
The post came shortly after a video went viral showing Malik reacting to his foot apparently being run over by a car. In the video, Malik, surrounded by bodyguards and fans, was seen walking through a crowd on the streets of Paris. He paused and seemed to wince as a car passed by his side. Security quickly escorted the “Tu hai kahan” singer to his car.
For the show and in the viral clip, Malik was seen wearing a patterned two-piece blue suit and a white button-up shirt, seated next to fellow musician Rita Ora. He sported his signature black spiked hair with blonde highlights, a look he was known for during his 1D days.
Malik, who has been busy promoting his summer single “Love Like This” and serving as the chief creative officer and co-owner of the alcohol-free drink brand Mixoloshe, also recently collaborated with AUR on the single “Tu hai kahan,” where he sang in Urdu for the remake of the group’s 2023 hit.
The musician, who has a 3-year-old daughter named Khai with his ex, Gigi Hadid, also spoke about fatherhood in a rare 2023 interview with Call Her Daddy. He expressed “Since I’ve had my daughter, the main thing in my mind is trying to be a good example to her”. He added, “That’s why I’m even doing this interview, you know? I used to get a lot of anxiety around having a conversation like this. And I want her to be able to look at me and be like, ‘My dad’s doing this.’
