Zayn Malik Made A Very Rare Public Appearance, And A Car Ran Over His Foot

Of course, you know Zayn Malik.

And you probably know that, despite the fact that he was in one of the biggest freakin' pop bands of the last 25 years, he keeps a pretty low profile when it comes to public appearances.

To wit — the last time he was photographed in public by photographers affiliated with the image service Getty Images was way back in April of 2021, when he went to a food cart in New York City with his now-ex Gigi Hadid.

Since Zayn and Gigi split, he's kind of kept a low profile. He did appear on the Call Her Daddy podcast last year to talk about the breakup, as well as the alleged incident with Yolanda Hadid that led to the split — and Gigi showed her support for him after the interview as well.

Well, it's Paris Fashion Week (when is it not?), and Zayn stepped out for the first time in a minute for the Kenzo Menswear Fall/Winter 2024–2025 show.

Apparently, during the photo scrum, a car ran over his foot.

But fear not! Zayn shared a post on IG proving that everything was, in fact, OK.

"Thanks for a great show! My foot is fine!!" Zayn wrote in the caption, tagging Kenzo and the fashion label's creative director Nigo in a photo of his white sneakers bearing some noticeable scuffs. "Thanks to my incredibly well-made shoes."
