Did Yolanda Give Her Daughters Bella And Gigi Hadid Eating Disorders?
Some fans think Yolanda Hadid is not only passing on modeling genes to her Bella and Gigi but also trauma.
The fashion world is full of models of different body shapes, colors, and lengths. With how much effort models put into every show, magazine cover, and ad, modeling has become a profession so profound that it can change a model’s lifestyle in a hundred and eighty-degree turn. But those who have a family legacy of modeling, like the Hadids, have a slight advantage as they have their beautiful genes as a base. Yet, there’s still so much criticism about their physique that surrounds them—especially from their mother, Yolanda Hadid.
What is Yolanda Hadid saying about her daughters Bella and Gigi’s bodies? Is she controlling how much and what her daughters can eat in a day? What kind of disease do the Hadids have, and is it because of their diet? Keep reading to find out what Yolanda possibly did…
Is Yolanda Hadid Still Married To Mohamed Hadid?
Yolanda Hadid is a former supermodel known for modeling on the covers of Guess and other well-known fashion companies. She is known for flaunting her well-sculpted body in swimsuits on the beach, which helped her get into prestige social events where fans believe she met the controversial Mohamed Hadid.
After kicking things together, the two decided to tie the knot in 1994, and only after two years of marriage did Yolanda give birth to their eldest daughter Jelena Noura or Gigi Hadid. In the succeeding year, another daughter named Bella Hadid was born. However, Mohamed and Yolanda’s relationship didn’t last long despite having two daughters together, and in 2000, the two decided to go their separate ways and get a divorce.
Mohamed Hadid’s wealth as a socialite is estimated between $100 to $200 million, which comes from his income as a nightclub owner in Greece, car restorer, and real estate mogul in Washington. All his businesses helped give his daughters a comfortable lifestyle at an early age. However, as Gigi Hadid opened up about her privileged upbringing and her sister, she made sure she worked just as hard in the modeling industry to compensate for the ‘big guilt’ that came with their wealth.
Who Is Yolanda Hadid’s Favorite Daughter?
Though Yolanda loves her daughters dearly, fans believe the mother of two has one clear favorite, Gigi. From how often she talks about Gigi in interviews and what she says about her, she seems more focused on Gigi’s career as her eldest daughter has an enormous following on social media.
Speaking to ET Online about Gigi’s recent participation in the Tommy Hilfiger event, she says, “I [Yolanda Hadid] always knew that Gigi [Hadid] was going to do great things in her life, and she’s always been so extremely creative. She loves to do things herself, which is completely up her alley. You never dared to dream this big, but I always knew that she would be successful in whatever she would put her mind to.”
However, her extreme attentiveness to Gigi’s career also has downsides, as Gigi’s fans blame Yolanda for Zayn Malik and Gigi’s break-up. As Yolanda has been giving close attention to Gigi’s life and her protectiveness, fans believe she may have speculated wrong things about Gigi and Zayn’s relationship that has caused conflict between the couple.
What is Bella Hadid’s Childhood Trauma?
Yolanda Hadid already allowed Bella Hadid to get a nose job as early as fourteen years old, which Bella’s fans got upset about. In an interview Bella had with Vogue, she admittedly said, “I wish I had kept the nose of my ancestors.” Her honest comment then backlashed on Yolanda, who fans pointed out as the person who should be held accountable for allowing her daughter to undergo such a procedure at such a young age.
Aside from her physical insecurity, Bella Hadid also opened up broadly about her childhood trauma which involved her lack of boundaries sexually, emotionally, and physically.
Fans also speculated that Bella could have been suffering from eating disorders after she told Vogue, “I [Bella Hadid] always ask myself, how did a girl with incredible insecurities, anxiety, depression, body image issues, eating issues, who hates to be touched, who has intense social anxiety—what was I doing getting into this business?”
Does Gigi Hadid Have An Eating Disorder?
Gigi’s fans have called Yolanda Hadid ‘toxic’ and ‘problematic’ because of how much attention she gives to Gigi’s meals. Although Gigi Hadid never confirmed her eating disorder, fans speculate that she may not get to eat the food she wants because Yolanda is afraid it might ruin Gigi’s thin figure.
There have been multiple clips online of Gigi subtly commenting that her mother would not be pleased knowing that she would eat an ‘unhealthy’ meal. However, she continues to do it because it is what she wants.
On the other hand, the Hadid fans are more worried about Bella’s health as she is more open about her physical insecurities. Since Bella has been honest about struggling because of the number of comparisons between her and Gigi, fans think that if she ever has a clinically-diagnosed eating disorder, Yolanda and other critics of her body should be held accountable for their hurtful words.
