Safaa Malik, the sister of former One Direction singer Zayn Malik, tied the knot days after her 17th birthday. Safaa married her boyfriend Martin Tiser on Monday at Maliks’ Bradford home.
Whether Zayn was present at the wedding is unclear, because he can’t be seen in the pictures shared on Facebook by his mother. The wedding was attended by Zayn’s father, Yaser, and his other siblings, Doniya, 28, and Waliyha, 21.
Safaa wore a red lehenga, while Martin wore a white sherwani. Zayn’s ex-girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, ‘liked’ Trisha’s post on Instagram. Gigi had earlier celebrated Eid with Zayn and Waliyha.
Several people criticized Safaa for getting married at such a young age, which prompted Martin to write on Instagram, “Thanks to all of you who support us. We so appreciate about that. But bullying us it’s not good guys. Stop it Saffy reading all your comments.!!!”
Zayn continues to financially support his family and even bought them a house with his One Direction money. His mother said in an earlier interview, “We never had enough money to buy own house. We always lived in rented accommodation, so Zayn knew how very important it was for me to have my own place.” He has transitioned into a solo career, like the rest of his former bandmates.
