Gigi Hadid and her friend were arrested for possessing marijuana in the Caymans Islands. Although the star wasn’t jailed, she was released with her friend after they paid a fine of $1000.
The arrest didn’t deter her vacation as she and her friends had a swell time posting bikini-clad images of their vacation. Since then, her whereabouts were largely unknown until Tuesday.
Hadid was photographed at the JFK Airport in NYC on Tuesday dressed in casual denim and a top look. The look featured a cream crop top styled with a matching shrug, distressed jeans and red Converse sneakers.
The supermodel added a blue plaid Prada tote and sunglasses to her fit. Her bleach-blonde hair was pulled back and sectioned into a ponytail. The rest flowed down effortlessly.
Same Tuesday, Hadid disclosed that she planned to catch the Barbie movie in theatres but did not disclose any details about her destination.
As stated earlier, the star and her friend were reportedly arrested while on their vacation. Per the report by Cayman Marl Road, she arrived at Owen Roberts International Airport with Leah McCarthy in a private jet from the USA.
Then there were customs checks with the agents who discovered a small amount of marijuana and utensils used for consumption in Gigi Hadid and her friend’s belongings.
Per her representative, the weed was for medical use and obtained legally from the hospital. Still, the model and her friend were arrested.
Hadid and McCarthy were processed at the Royal Cayman Islands Detention Center and later released on bail, pending prosecution, reports local outlet Cayman Marl Road.
On July 12, both appeared in Summary Court and pleaded guilty. They were both fined $1,000 to avoid conviction on their records.
Notwithstanding the arrests, the model and her friends still had fun as they enjoyed days under the sun.
The star later took to Instagram to respond to critics’ comments about her arrest. In the post, she added multiple images of her bikinis from her vacation and captioned it, ‘All’s well that ends well.”
