Gigi Hadid, 28, was allegedly arrested for cannabis possession while on holiday in the Cayman Islands.

The supermodel and her friend were reportedly taken in for "suspicion importation of ganja and importation of utensils used for the consumption of ganja," according to local news outlet Cayman Marl Road.

The alleged incident was said to take place when Hadid (whose real name is Jelena Noura Hadid) went through customs at the Owen Roberts International Airport on 10 July.

The outlet reported that the pair appeared in court on 12 July, where they were charged and pleaded guilty. The publication claimed they were both fined $1,000 (£920) and not facing any charges.

Weed is illegal in the Cayman Islands, but the use of CBD oil is allowed for people with a doctor's note to consume.

"Gigi was travelling with marijuana purchased legally in NYC with a medical license," Hadid's rep told E! News. "It has also been legal for medical use in Grand Cayman since 2017. Her record remains clear and she enjoyed the rest of her time on the island."
