Hadid sisters donate $1m to Palestinian aid effort

 

US supermodel sisters Bella and Gigi Hadid are donating $1m (£785,000) to support Palestinian relief efforts.
A representative for Bella said the money has been earmarked for equal distribution among four humanitarian organisations that have a focus on children and families affected by the conflict in Gaza.
The sisters, whose father is Palestinian property tycoon Mohamed Anwar Hadid, have been vocal in their support for the people affected.
In an Instagram post in May, Bella said she was “devastated at the loss of the Palestinian people and the lack of empathy coming from the government systems worldwide”.

The donations come after a series of photographs of the model at the Cannes Film Festival last month featured her in a red and white dress made of traditional Arabic cloth associated with Palestinian culture.
She wrote that it was “a beautiful way to represent the history, labour of love, resilience and, most importantly, the art of historic Palestinian embroidery”.
After Hamas’s 7 October attack on Israel, Gigi wrote on Instagram: “My thoughts are with all those affected by this unjustifiable tragedy, and every day that innocent lives are taken by this conflict – too many of which are children.
“I have deep empathy and heartbreak for the Palestinian struggle and life under occupation, it’s a responsibility I hold daily.”
She added: “While I have hopes and dreams for Palestinians, none of them include the harm of a Jewish person.”
The four relief agencies receiving donations from the sisters are Heal Palestine, Palestine Children’s Relief Fund, World Central Kitchen, and United Nations Relief and Works Agency.
The organisations support humanitarian aid including food and medical programmes, assist displaced families, and provide psychological services amid the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas.
US President Joe Biden on Friday urged Hamas to accept a new Israeli proposal to end the conflict in Gaza, saying that “it’s time for this war to end”.
The conflict began when Hamas gunmen launched an unprecedented attack on Israel, killing about 1,200 people and taking 252 back to Gaza as hostages.
More than 36,000 people have been killed in Gaza since the start, according to the Hamas-run health ministry.

Selena Gomez Calls Bella Hadid Her ‘Girl Crush’ Years After Feud Rumors Over Mutual Ex The Weeknd

Selena Gomez just called Bella Hadid her “girl crush” — and might have finally put feud rumors to rest.

On Tuesday, Gomez shared a series of videos and photos to her Instagram Story and TikTok appreciating Hadid’s beauty.

In the first video shared to her Story, the actress and musician reposted a video created on TikTok where she is lip-syncing to a viral audio clip of Hadid saying, “So my name, my name is Bella Hadid,” over motivational-sounding music. Gomez played up the video by putting a flattering filter on and lip-syncing dramatically.

Then, in the second video shared, Gomez took the filter and audio off and said, “Instead, this is me. I accidentally laminated my brows too much…my name is Selena Gomez. See! It doesn’t even sound sexy,” before dropping the camera and ending the video. She added the caption, “Also I need a lint roller guys…” poking fun at the hair on her black sweater.

The last installment in her Instagram Story was a photo of Hadid’s 2022 photo shoot with Vogue with the caption, “#girlcrush.”

This all comes years after the two sparked feud rumors over their mutual following and unfollowing of each other once Gomez began dating Hadid’s ex-boyfriend The Weeknd.

In 2019, Gomez and Hadid began unfollowing, refollowing and unfollowing each other on Instagram, sparking the speculation that the duo was beefing with each other.

The internet rumors got so inescapable that Gomez commented on a fan account apologizing for any harm she had caused the model, writing, “NO. I shouldn’t of spoken without knowing the truth. I’m sorry. Please don’t be hurtful. She is a wonderful person and it was all a misunderstanding.”

Hadid still does not follow Gomez on social media, though the actress does follow her and her sister, Gigi Hadid.
