Gigi Hadid Wiki – Gigi Hadid Biography
Gigi Hadid was arrested and fined $1,000 after Customs and Border Control agents found marijuana and drug paraphernalia in her luggage upon arrival in the Cayman Islands last week.
The supermodel, who has since been released, had flown in a private jet to the tropical destination for a girls’ trip from the United States on July 10. She arrived at Owen Roberts International Airport where CBC, local outlet Cayman Marl Road reported, discovered “ganja and utensils used for ganja consumption” after passing her bags through a scanner and searching them by hand. The amounts “were relatively small and apparently for personal consumption,” according to the outlet. Similar materials were found in the bags of Leah Nicole McCarthy, another member of Hadid’s group, Cayman Marl Road reported. Both women were arrested on “suspicion of importing ganja and importing utensils used for ganja consumption” and transported to the Prisoner Detention Center.
Gigi Hadid is 28 years old.
Gigi Hadid arrested for possession of ‘ganja’ on Cayman Islands
They were released on bail and appeared before a Summary Court on July 12, where they both pleaded guilty. They were each fined $1,000 and no convictions were recorded. Courts in the Cayman Islands confirm to PEOPLE that Hadid and McCarthy were prosecuted in George Town, but did not specify the charges. A rep for Hadid tells PEOPLE: “Gigi was traveling with marijuana purchased legally in New York with a medical license. She has also been legal for medical use in Grand Cayman since 2017. Her track record remains clear and she enjoyed the rest of her time in the island.” PEOPLE has reached out to McCarthy for comment. Since the incident, Hadid and her friends have been relaxing in the sun on their vacation, sharing photos and videos of her travels. On July 14, Hadid took to Instagram to show off two bikini photos, one of which included a huge (and hugely fake) dragon tattoo on her leg. Hadid commented on the black and white body art by writing in the caption, “Good morning!” with a green dragon emoji. She shared another look at her design via her Instagram story, writing: “Am I on my girl with the dragon tattoo era?”
