Supermodel Gigi Hadid was fined $1,000 after authorities found marijuana and drug paraphernalia in her luggage upon her arrival in the Cayman Islands, according to court documents, Your Content has learned.

The incident occurred when Hadid flew to the tropical destination on a private jet for a girls’ trip from the United States on July 10.

Upon arriving at Owen Roberts International Airport, Customs & Border Control agents conducted a scan of her bags and discovered “ganja and utensils used for the consumption of ganja.” The quantities were deemed to be for personal use, as reported by local outlet Cayman Marl Road.

Leah Nicole McCarthy, a member of Hadid’s group, also had similar materials in her bags and was arrested along with Hadid on charges of suspicion of importation of ganja and importation of utensils used for the consumption of ganja. Both women were subsequently released on bail.

On July 12, Hadid and McCarthy appeared in a Summary Court and pleaded guilty to the charges. Each of them received a fine of $1,000, and no conviction was recorded. The specific charges were not disclosed by the Cayman Islands courts.

A representative for Hadid clarified that she had purchased the marijuana legally in New York City with a medical license and that its medical use had been legal in Grand Cayman since 2017.

The spokesperson also confirmed that Hadid’s record remains clear and that she enjoyed the remainder of her time on the island, according to People.
