Zayn Malik was born on January 12, 1993, to Pakistani Dad Yaser Malik and English Mum, Tricia Brannan Malik in Bradford, West Yorkshire, England.
As of March 2020, Zayn Malik’s net worth is around $70 million. His revenue comes from his career as a singer as well as his brand endorsements. Zain became a teenage sensation by virtue of his career in One Direction.
Zayn lives in multi million dollar penthouse located in Manhattan. Malik purchased a 4-bedroom penthouse in Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood for $10.7 million.
The singer’s body is an open canvas book with eye-catching and incredible tattoos. He has several tattoos inked all over his body. Malik tattooed is his ex girlfriend eyes on the center of his chest on his 25th birthday.
He has one older sister, Doniya, and two younger sisters, Waliyha and Safaa. The Malik family belongs to the Muslim faith. He attended Lower Fields Primary School and Tong High School in Bradford. As a teenager he took performing arts courses and appeared in school productions.
During his childhood days, Zayn Malik listened to different genres of music, such as hip-hop, R&B and even songs from Bollywood (Indian movies). His father apparently had a good collection and listening to various tracks helped him develop a love for rapping.
Trisha Malik was born in Bradford to a white British working class family. Her parents ran a pub in the city, but her life
“I’ve always tried to learn as much as I can about my husband’s religion and culture, I made sure the children went to the mosque. Zayn has read the Koran three times.”
Yaser Malik stayed at home and cared about the boy and his sisters, while his mother was working. Trisha worked as a halal chef in the kitchen of a local primary school, making meals for Muslim children. On Zayn’s advice she gave up her job.
“We never had enough money to buy our own house,” she explains. “We always lived in rented accommodation, so Zayn knew how very important it was for me to have my own place”.
The star’s family still live in Bradford and he supports his parents and sisters financially. Generous Zayn bought a house on the outskirts of the city for his family after vowing he’d look after them when the 1D cash started rolling in.
He also pays Trisha a wage after begging her to give up her job as a dinner lady at a local school. They have lived in the £300,000 detached four bed home for six years.
It is a far cry from one of the homes where he grew up – a modest terraced place in the city worth just £50,000.
Two years ago, Trisha launched a beauty salon with the help of her daughters Waliyha and Doniya, but it has since closed.
In January 2017, Zayn collaborated with the Italian footwear designer Giuseppe Zanotti and released a shoe line. The line featured four shoe types: sneakers and boots.
