Gigi Hadid’s summer holidays started in a spectacular way: as soon as she landed on the Cayman Islands on July 10th with a private jet, she was arrested at the Owen Roberts International Airport, together with her friend Leah Nicole McCarthy. When their luggage was scanned, the customs officers found something suspicious: after a more thorough search, the agents discovered that Gigi Hadid and her friend had a small amount of marijuana with them.

Two days later, on July 12th, the model and her friend, during a court hearing, pleaded guilty and were both fined a thousand dollars.
