The arrest took place after a search of their luggage, which resulted in the discovery of a small quantity of marijuana. The two had arrived in the Cayman Islands from the United States via a private aircraft before the incident.

In response to the situation, a representative for Hadid released a statement to CBS News, stating that the 28-year-old model was carrying marijuana legally purchased in New York City, backed by a valid medical license. The representative further mentioned that medical use of marijuana has been lawful in Grand Cayman since 2017. As per the representative, Gigi Hadid’s record remains clear, and she continued to enjoy her time on the island after the incident.

The arrest occurred at Owen Roberts International Airport, and both women were later released on bail, as reported by the local publication Cayman Marl Road.
