Gigi Hadid Vehemently Denies Snorting Cocaine in Video at Victoria's Secret Event
By Antoinette Bueno
Model Gigi Hadid is "insulted" over rumors that she was caught on tape snorting cocaine at a Victoria's Secret event in Miami over the weekend.
The 19-year-old daughter of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster -- who's modeled for the likes of Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford -- took to her Twitter to respond to gossip site OCEANUP's insinuation that it appeared like she was snorting cocaine in her boyfriend Cody Simpson's Snapchat video.
In the video in question, Gigi is shown dancing and then briefly puts her head down on a table.
"If u actually watch the video there is nothing on the counter .5 sec's before you see that image... It's not only impossible but insane to me," Gigi tweeted on Sunday. "Besides for doing the supposed in general, I'd be an idiot to do that at a WORK EVENT in front of hundreds of people/press. I'm insulted."

Gigi was still clearly affected by the situation on Tuesday.
"A situation looked like and was made into something it wasn't, but I know who I am and what I stand for," she tweeted again. "I lead a healthy life. I'm a good, hardworking, responsible person. If you don't want to give me the benefit of the doubt that's fine but, I know that this situation will not change my reputation within my industry bc the people that know & work w/me know that the person some are trying to make me out to be is NOT who I am or who I'll ever be. #HugsNotDrugs."
Gigi and Cody hosted Victoria’s Secret's Pink Spring Break bash this past Saturday, the photogenic couple clearly enjoying themselves in the warm weather, snapping selfies and playing DJ.
On a more serious note, Gigi's mother Yolanda recently opened up about battling Lyme disease for the past three years. In a post on Bravotv.com, she said that she had "lost the ability to read, write, or even watch TV."
