Video of the incident shows the former One Direction singer being mobbed by fans while attending the Kenzo fashion show on Friday. As he’s ushered through the crowd, a car appears to run over Malik’s foot.
Though the singer briefly gets pulled back a bit by the car, he grimaces and continues to move forward with his security detail.

The “Pillowtalk” singer confirmed the mishap in an Instagram post on Saturday, and included a photo that showed tire marks on his white Kenzo shoes.
“Thanks for a great show!” Malik wrote, tagging the design house and Nigö, the artistic director of Kenzo.
“My foot is fine!! Thanks to my incredibly well made shoes,” he added.
Luckily, Malik recovered enough to attend both the Valentino and Loewe shows on Saturday, just hours after his car incident.
The outings in Paris were relatively rare for Malik, who only recently began making public appearances over the last few months.
The singer appeared on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast in July ― marking his first interview in years ― where he candidly spoke about his altercation with Gigi Hadid’s mom in 2021, co-parenting with his ex, and why he really left One Direction.
