Gigi Hadid honours hard-working parents

Sydney: Model Gigi Hadid opened up about being pigeonholed due to her parent’s success and being told she was undeserving of her career in the fashion industry.

Speaking Reebok’s #BeMoreHuman campaign launch here, Hadid said: “People think that I don’t deserve to be where I am because I come from a successful family, but my parents were f***ing hardworking.

“My Dad was a refugee, my Mum was on a farm, went to New York, sending money to her family – they worked their a**es off and they gave me a life because of their hard work, and I work hard to honour that.”

She went on to discuss the criticism she received following a magazine cover and confessed her actor-singer boyfriend Zayn Malik had faced similar criticism so the pair have bonded over the public’s need to label them, reports
