Gigi Hadid just got herself into a Brittney Griner situation.

The famous model was arrested with a friend in the Cayman Islands after customs found “ganja and utensils used for the consumption of ganja” in their luggage. The two were immediately charged with marijuana possession.

It all went down about a week ago, although reports about the incident are just coming to light today. Hadid and fellow model Leah Nicole McCarthy were vacationing on July 10 when authorities found their bags contained illegal paraphernalia. The pair were quickly transported to the Prisoner Detention Center, but soon released on bail.

They then returned two days later to court for their hearing where they pleaded guilty. Luckily for the two, marijuana in the Cayman Islands is legal for medical use, so they didn’t get themselves fully caught up in a Griner-Russia debacle. Instead, the models were simply forced to pay a $1,000 fine each. Basically, loose change for Hadid who is worth a whopping $30 million.

According to Hadid’s representative, this incident will not affect her permanent record. He also claimed she purchased the weed legally with a medical card in New York. To that, I call cap. She definitely buys her prerolls from a bodega like the rest of us and is overcorrecting.

Anyway, Hadid and her model friends didn’t let this ordeal stop them from enjoying the beautiful island. Posting on social media, the models showed off their money-making figures by the pool, including Hadid revealing a new huge thigh tattoo of a dragon.

What did we learn?

So what’s the takeaway from this story? Number one, Gigi Hadid blazes face. Number two, bringing weed to the Cayman Islands could cost you a pretty penny, but thankfully won’t get you locked up. 

I’m sure Gigi is counting her blessings that she was just fined a small rack. With a body like hers, everyone knows she wouldn’t have lasted a night in the clink.
