Gigi Hadid’s father has sparked a debate about privilege after declaring the supermodel ‘self-made’ and claiming she’s never taken money from her parents. 

Mohamed Hadid, who is also father to Bella Hadid, shared a sweet post listing facts about Gigi which her fans may not have known. He accompanied the Instagram post with a photo of Gigi’s daughter Khai who she shares with boyfriend Zayn Malik

‘What the 20 things that you did not know about Gigi hadid . ? 1. Self Made.. never took a single Dollar from her parents [sic],’ Mohamed wrote. 

‘2. Started modeling for Baby Guess when she was in Khai’s age,’ he added. 

His comments about Gigi being self-made was met with a mixed response from his Instagram followers, with one commenting: ‘Self made?? Born privileged more like it.’ 

Another critic said it was ‘impossible’ for Gigi to be responsible for her own fortune and success having come from a wealthy background in the first place – Mohamed is a real estate developer while his wife Yolanda Hadid is a former model herself. 

Agreeing with the sentiments, one of Mohamed’s followers weighed in: ‘They literally bought Gigi and Bella a model career. Look at them at the beginning of their careers. They would have never got any job if it wouldn’t be their parents. Especially their walks have been extremely horrible. Other less rich spoiled models would’ve never had the opportunity.

‘They never worked hard for anything. Their whole career is bought.’ 

One other agreed: ‘Totally agree. Def not self made , as I said it’s just accumulated since they were children by their parents putting them into modelling and putting the money away for their future. So they have no need to ask them for money as it’s always been there for them.’ 

However, others jumped to Mohamed’s defence with one hitting back: ‘She was born privileged but that doesn’t mean she didn’t work hard to get where she is right now.’ 

Another supporter stated: ‘It is not a crime to be born privileged !! Then she has always been busy, she has certainly not remained seated in her privileges.’ 

Complimenting the businessman, one added: ‘U raised all of your children very welk [sic] Mr. Hadid.’ 

In 2018, Gigi, 25, was ranked number seven in Forbes’ list of the highest-paid models with an estimated fortune of $9.5million (£6.9m). She was just ahead of her younger sister Bella, 24, who was at number eight with an estimated net worth of $8.5m (£6.1m).
