If you've been following the Met Gala for the past few years you would have noticed that supermodel Gigi Hadid always walks the red carpet solo, as she has done since 2016 - the only year that boyfriend Zayn Malik has attended. Well, now people have a theory as to why, after an interview with Zayn from 2018 resurfaced, leading fans to theorise that he may actually have been banned from the event.
The Met Gala, like any celebrity event, is always full of drama and gossip. From the birth of Hiddleswift in 2016 to Jared Leto showing up with his own head for a prop in 2019, there's always something going on, and this year was no different. But while all the drama was happening, eagle-eyed viewers were busy wondering why Zayn Malik had skipped out on yet another year.
"I did go," Zayn said referencing his 2016 appearance with Gigi. "But I didn't go there to be like, 'Yo, take me serious,' I was taking the piss! I went there as my favourite Mortal Kombat character, Jax."
"The Met Gala is not necessarily anything that I ever knew about or was about. But my [former] stylist…would say to me, 'This is really good for you to do.' And no matter how strong you are mentally, you can always be swayed to do certain things.
"Now, it's not something I would go to. I'd rather be sitting at my house, doing something productive, than dressing up in really expensive clothes and being photographed on a red carpet.… To do the self-indulgent 'Look at me, I'm amazing' thing on the red carpet, it's not me."
It may very well be that Zayn just doesn't want to go, however his comments led to speculation that he may also have been banned. Since several famous names, from Gwyneth Paltrow to Tina Fey, have reportedly found themselves uninvited from the Met Gala after throwing shade at the event during interviews.
Is zayn malik on the met gala blacklist yet?
