Supermodel Gigi Hadid's career is facing turmoil after she was arrested in the Cayman Islands for possessing marijuana and drug-related paraphernalia. Hadid and her friend, Leah Nicole McCarthy, pleaded guilty to the charges and paid a fine. Insiders say the scandal has damaged her image, especially with family-friendly brands she collaborates with.
Hadid's representatives stated that the drugs were legally purchased in New York City with a medical license and that Grand Cayman also allows medical use of marijuana. Despite the controversy, Hadid and McCarthy still enjoyed their vacation. However, officials noted that Hadid's medical card is invalid in the Cayman Islands. In a separate matter, Gigi's sister, Bella Hadid, has checked into rehab for the fourth time, struggling with fame and the pressures of the modeling industry.
Hopefully, both sisters can overcome these issues and avoid future troubles. It is also rumored that Gigi Hadid is back with actor Leonardo DiCaprio, but the arrest has allegedly unnerved her and damaged her image as Leo's partner.
