When you are a famed celebrity such as Gigi Hadid, having paparazzi follow your every move becomes the new normal. The supermodel took to Instagram to reveal the story behind a photo of herself, which may result in legal action—against her!
Hadid wrote, “Yesterday I heard from my management that I am being 'legally pursued' for my last now-deleted Instagram post. The photo is by a Paparazzi & is one of me on the street outside an event last week.” She explained, “I posed/smiled for the photo because I understand that this is part of my job, this was an appropriate situation for ‘the press’ to attend, and also that this is how paparazzi make a living.”
The model continued to share how she frequently feels victimized by paparazzi photographers, writing, "These people make money off us everyday, LEGALLY stalking us day in and day out – for nothing special – for us to walk six feet to a car and six feet into a work building. They drive dangerously close and extremely recklessly; they put the general public in danger in pursuit of a photo.”
Hadid explained that she found the photo of herself on Twitter and it did not have a photographers name attached to it. Though there may not be anything the model can do legally about this matter, she is using her fame to make a statement about the "toxic" nature surrounding paparazzi.
