Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid’s fans were sent into a frenzy last month after rumours started circulating that they had gotten “married”.

It all started when the former One Direction star’s collaborator, Ingrid Michaelson, did a live stream and mistakenly referred to the A-list couple as “married”, causing ‘Zayn is married’ to trend on Twitter soon after.

At the time, the 41-year-old songstress, who worked on ‘To Begin Again’ with Zayn, cleared up the rumours, and she has now explained how the blunder came about.

Joining Christine & Salt, she explained it was all just an innocent mistake and she actually thought the pair had tied the knot.

She said: “I said something along the lines of ‘He’s a really private guy. He’s married. He has a kid.”

Ingrid continued: “‘He just doesn’t want to deal with stuff he doesn’t want to deal with.

“I don’t know, I thought he was married! So spoiler alert — not married!"

“It was a whole thing. And I had to go on Instagram and be like, ‘So you guys, as far as I know, he is not married. But I really don’t know anything. I am sorry and that’s it.”

This comes after Ingrid hopped on Instagram at the time, to apologise to the parents of baby Khai, saying: “My apologies to Zayn and Gigi, if any of this trickles to you and is annoying.

“I’m sorry — that’s not my intention. And to his fans, I’m sorry for getting you all riled up, and much love to you all.”
