Vee Speaks Out
The 23-year-old model accused the real-estate developer of giving her a date rape drug and sexually assaulting her.
"Thank you @kateupton it is time people like @paulmarciano & @mohamedhadid get exposed for who they really are! I met with paul at his @guess headquarters that is actually a[n] apartment where he sexually harassed me & after that passed me on to his friend [Mohamed] who was going to meet me for 'coffee,'" Vee captioned the post.
Vee continued that she was blackmailed by Hadid into staying silent and was also threatened that her career would be over.
"LAST year when I tr[i]ed (sic) to speak out about it they found out & made me sign a NON-disclosure agreement & I only agreed to sign because paul threatened me & said he would get me disappeared if I ever say anything," Vee added. "#TIMESUP Why should we have to stay quiet because they have the power? #METOO.," she continued.
Hadid responded to Vee's claims and said that her story was "outrageous" and "totally untrue." Hadid also stated to TMZ that he only met the model once and did not touch her. The 69-year-old tycoon was married to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Yolanda Hadid, with whom has three children, Gigi, Bella, and Anwar. Gigi and Bella are models and Gigi was previously the face for Guess.
Hadid has been engaged to Shiva Safai, who is 33 years his junior and appeared on Second Wives Club.
Vee's claims follow model Kate Upton's accusations against Marciano of sexual assault. Upton alleged that Marciano used his power to "sexually and emotionally" women. After Upton came forward, more women spoke out against Marciano.
Since September 2017, a plethora of powerful men in Hollywood have been accused of sexual misconduct. After producer and movie mogul, Harvey Weinstein was accused by over 80 women of sexual assault, rape, and misconduct, other men have also been outed for alleged sexual crimes.
