Gigi Hadid defends herself against being man-handled

BANG Showbiz

GIGI Hadid has defended herself after appearing to elbow a man in Milan.

The 21-year-old model was criticised for appearing to lash out at a fan as she and her sister Bella made their way back to their car following the Max Mara fashion show.

She wrote on Twitter: "To unknown article writer: fan?!!! The ACTUAL fans that were there can tell you what happened.

"I'm a HUMAN BEING - and had EVERY RIGHT to defend myself. How dare that idiot thinks he has the right to man-handle a complete stranger. He ran quick tho (sic)"

During the incident, Gigi used her elbow to protect herself as the unknown man tried to grab her and pick her up.

Whilst fame can be difficult at times, Gigi is glad to have her "girl squad" - which includes the likes of Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss - to help her navigate the tough territory.

She said previously: "Yeah it is definitely, between us, an open conversation. The reason you become so close to people in the industry is that they understand what it is that you are experiencing.

"We all teach and learn from one another. If you have a question about privacy, for example, everyone is super helpful about it."

And Gigi is also pleased to have her boyfriend Zayn Malik to go home to.

Asked what she finds most attractive about the One Direction star, she said: "I would say his brain. For the first time, we are both in a relationship where we have very similar interests outside of work and that is really important.

"We cook a lot together and do art together and we're each others' best friends. We both feel we can talk about anything and learn a lot from one another.

"I'm also getting super into British foods. I'm loving Heinz baked beans in the morning, yeah and Z cooks a lot. He makes a brilliant curry. Butter chicken is his signature dish. Don't worry - he's representing good for the British boys!"
