Sometimes Bella Hadid makes the news because she appears in a gorgeous dress on the red carpet, for example, for a film festival, which also allows prestigious magazines and newspapers to publish a photo of the supermodel. But most of the time, the messages are along the lines of “Bella and her boyfriend wear tanks when they go to the gym.”
Hadid once said in an interview that all this attention is overwhelming and annoying. But at the same time, the model herself shares a huge part of her life on social media: photos, videos, court wisdom and political beliefs.
Even with the latter, the 26-year-old Hadid sometimes makes newspapers: she advocates for the Black Lives Matter movement and regularly talks about the fate of Palestinians. Last weekend, I commented extensively on social media about events in Israel and the occupied territories. She says she was censored by Instagram. “As soon as I post something about Palestine, it becomes Shade is forbidden And I definitely see millions of followers less than I have to say,” the model wrote with a tearful eye.
Through shadow ban Some posts will appear online, but they will be less visible on followers’ timelines – which has Hadid 51.2 million of them. It’s a somewhat elusive phenomenon that influencers often complain about when a message doesn’t have the reach they hoped for. There has been no response from Instagram to Hadid’s allegations. In any case, she says she wants to speak out about the situation in the region, “because I’m sick of the fact that Palestinians have been abused, mistreated and humiliated since 1948, the year my father was born.”
Her father is Palestinian businessman Muhammad Hadid, who fled with his parents to Syria in 1948 after the establishment of the State of Israel and ended up in Washington at the age of 14. He became a successful real estate developer, particularly in Beverly Hills. The family moved there when Bella was still a little girl. In an interview with the magazine porter The model explains how his background played an important role in her upbringing. “He was religious and prayed with us.” She has said that she is proud of being a Muslim, but has stated in other interviews that she feels connected to every religion. “I invite any god who wishes to be there for me.”
Her parents divorced when Hadid was 3 years old, and Bella was raised in Santa Barbara with older sister Gigi and younger brother Anwar – both models – by her mother Yolanda van den Herrick. Born in Papendrecht in the Netherlands in 1964, Bella’s mother was a successful model and married for the second time to musician and producer David Foster. She became an American celebrity after starring in the series for a few seasons The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, with the family’s large refrigerator, which particularly impressed the public. Hadid says she never watched the show and always hid upstairs during filming.
“Thanks to her background, she became the model that she is today,” Wilma Walker of modeling agency WW Models in Amsterdam says by phone. “Just like Madonna’s daughter, she’s allowed to perform, while another girl of the same height will be too small for that. Your name is important. Money can be made by name, designers are attached to that. But Bella Hadid is beautiful or talented? She’s not my type, it was.” There’s too much work on her face and body for my taste.”
Hadid changed her nose and later regretted it, but swore that she did not undergo further cosmetic procedures. Hadid says extensively on social media and in interviews, that her beautiful life isn’t always very beautiful. She has Lyme disease and suffers from it a lot. I drank too much at times, but it stopped. I always felt that her sister Gigi was the best and prettiest.
She became depressed and posted pictures of herself with a face swollen with tears on Instagram to support others struggling with life. “People can say anything about my appearance, how I talk or how I act,” she recently said in an interview. Vogue magazine† “But I never cancel a job and am always on time. Nobody can claim that I don’t destroy myself.”
