Gigi Hadid Called Into Jury Duty for Harvey Weinstein Trial

Gigi Hadid was called into jury service on Monday morning (January 13) for the Harvey Weinstein trial.

The disgraced movie producer and studio exec is facing five counts of rape and sexual assault. Over 100 New Yorkers were questioned about their ability to be impartial in the case and Gigi reportedly said she could be impartial.

New York Daily News reporter Molly Crane-Newman says that Gigi was seated just 20 feet away from Weinstein while being questioned by the judge.

Gigi confirmed to the judge that she has previously met Weinstein and potential witness Salma Hayek, but felt she “could judge the case impartially.” She said, “I think I’m still able to keep an open mind on the facts.”

On January 5, Gigi posted to her Instagram Stories about how her “dream came true” by being called to jury duty.

“This week a dream came true. I’ve been summoned for jury duty, ya’ll. (Not sure why this shocked me so much?!) I’d live to thank the State of New York. My mom and @vesperw seemed concerned by my genuine excitement… I realize it will prob suck. Let me dream,” Gigi wrote. You can seen the screencap in the gallery.
