It appears that Zayn Malik was embroiled in an altercation that almost ended in a physical brawl outside a New York bar on Thursday.
The former One Direction member, 28, who was shirtless and smoking a cigarette, was apparently filmed by viewers – in footage obtained from TMZ – shouting to a man who allegedly came from the Little Sister Lounge next door.
While it’s unclear why Malik took off his shirt, sources familiar with the situation told TMZ on Friday that the “Pillowtalk” actor wore it before leaving the Amsterdam Billiards Club.
A Malik representative did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
“Zayn is here a lot and we love having him. He was here for a couple of hours playing pool and table tennis with a few people and there were no problems,” one of the club owners told Page Six.

“I heard that the [scuffle] started about the guy who wanted a photo but I’m not sure. It happened outside. We gave him an Amsterdam Billiards T-shirt and we’re disappointed that he didn’t wear it outside! “Added the owner with a laugh.

Sources also told TMZ that the man allegedly tried to lure supermodel Gigi Hadid, 26, who wasn’t with Malik – and allegedly pounced on Malik at some point before the couple split.

Onlookers seemed to instigate the teasing between Malik and the man who allegedly insulted each other before apparent members of Malik’s camp got him out of Dodge before the schism became physical, according to the rumor mill. The police were allegedly not involved.
