AceShowbiz - Gigi Hadid has been slapped with a lawsuit over a paparazzi photo which she posted on Instagram without giving credits. But the model is apparently not afraid by the suit and is even calling out the paparazzo for taking legal action against her through a lengthy Instagram post.
In her post, Gigi acknowledges it's part of her job to get her pictures taken wherever she goes and this is how paparazzi make a living. However, she still thinks that the paparazzi are going too far to the point where she feels like her privacy "is being unreasonably intruded upon, doing everyday things feel harder to face."
"I understand if they know someone is going to an event, or even stopping by sometimes to see if someone will leave their house that day," she says. "but, these people make money off us everyday, LEGALLY stalking us day in and day out- for nothing special- for us to walk six feet to a car and six feet into a work building. They drive dangerously close and extremely recklessly; they put the general public in danger in pursuit of a photo... and it seems that they can never get enough."
She continues, "For someone to take a situation where I was trying to be open, and sue me for a photo I FOUND ON TWITTER (with no photographers name on the image), for a photo he has already been paid for whatever outlet put it online (!!!), is absurd. I had no way of knowing which of the 15+ photographers outside that day took these exact photos."
The model girlfriend of Zayn Malik goes on addressing how paparazzi like to attack young fans who run fan accounts for posting pics which they took, noting that she is incredibly sad by this. Concluding her message, she urges paparazzi to draw a line and back out a little bit.
"Most importantly, demanding money from young fans (who post pictures you stalk us to get!! & photos that have already been paid for and distributed by press-outlets) and having their fan-accounts shut down, (when you don't know what the fan base community means to them), is just wrong," she writes.
