Bella Hadid has since spoken out since her sister Gigi Hadid’s frightening attack in Milan last week. The sisters were seen leaving the Max Mara show on Thursday, Sept. 22, as Gigi was grabbed by a strange man on the street.
In a series of exclusive photos posted over at the Daily Mail, Gigi Hadid is seen elbowing the man, who has been described as a “prankster” and “over eager fan” by numerous outlets. The man tries to pick her up and carry her away, but she was able to defend herself and escape.
In the footage, Bella is heard saying, “Let go of her!” Gigi is then heard screaming, “Who the f*** are you, you piece of s***.” She also brushed off the incident as she entered her car, and asked a member of her security team to go after the man.
Following the scary ordeal, Gigi tweeted an image of a headline that read “Not Model Behavior,” as reported by Vanity Fair. The outlet went on to describe the incident as “Hadid aggressively lashes out and ELBOWS fan in the FACE after her tries to pick her up.
Gigi tweeted the link and responded, “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.” She finished her response with the fist punch, smirking-face, and cat emojis.

Bella Hadid supported her older sister by retweeting her comments, along with commenting before later deleting: “Men needs to learn the boundaries about touching women like this isn’t acceptable in society. I hate it when they aren’t listening. Who tf do you think you are trying grabbing Gigi without your consent, it is NEVER okay to grab someone let alone a woman. Educate yourself. [SIC].”
Gigi and Bella Hadid have been traveling around the world amid the Fashion Week festivities. The sisters stole the spotlight at New York Fashion Week, especially in the controversial Marc Jacobs runway show. Since then, they have been seen on the catwalks in London and Milan. Now, they’re getting ready for Paris Fashion Week. The famous sisters have been making time for some fun as well. While Gigi cozies up to her boyfriend Zayn Malik, Bella gets up to her own hi-jinks with her friends.
In a recent report via the Daily Mail, Bella Hadid usually puts on a serious face when she walks the runways. However, she showed off her playful side when she attended the Love Magazine and Marc Jacobs LFW Party at Loulou’s in London earlier this month. Bella was seen draping her leg across the lab of her stylist Katie Grand as she gives an intense smolder in the other direction. After she extended her lean and long leg for everyone to see, Bella then cracked a smile.

Bella wore a black coat dress, which she paired with a black strapless party dress. The wool coat featured an oversized black fur collar which draped over her shoulders while Bella held it with one hand. She finished off her look with a diamond choker, black chunky platform shoes, and a topknot. She appeared to be having a lot of fun at the party as she let her hair down, figuratively.
She also poked fun at her tumble at the Michael Kors show during New York Fashion Week. The footage of Bella tripping on stage immediately became viral and was one of the highlights of the event. Bella took to Twitter to joke, “Guys I’m a professional break dancer now I forgot to tell u.”
At the Kors show, the brunette beauty wore a black embellished paired with a wide belt. She cracked a smile once she tripped in front of everyone.
Though Bella Hadid is serious about her modeling career, she seems to have a great sense of humor about everything. What has been your favorite Fashion Week moment, so far? Sound off below in the comments section.
