Kendall Jenner And Gigi Hadid Are Lashing Out At The Press For Their Lack Of Privacy

The models have had enough of the press and the paps.

A man was arrested for trespassing on Kendall Jenner’s house on Tuesday, and she’s blaming the press.

37-year-old John Ford was arrested after security noticed him by Kendall’s back garden pool after scaling the mountainside behind the community.

The 22-year-old star spoke out about the incident while taking aim at TMZ.

Kendall shared the TMZ report on her Twitter writing: “And how do you guys think these terrifying people know where my house is? cuz you release not only photos but my location. it is so beyond unsafe. is this not our one ounce of privacy we can get???

“i understand what i’ve signed up for but when you release the exact location to where i live THAT is when you’re putting my life in danger. your home is your safe haven, but for me, cuz of outlets like you, my home is anything BUT. you should be ashamed of yourself.”

Fellow model and friend of Kendall Gigi Hadid has also lashed out at the press recently.

Gigi is being sued for reposting a photo which was taken of her by a member of the paparazzi, and she’s not too happy about it.

In a lengthy post on Instagram, Gigi wrote:

“Yesterday I heard from my management that I am being ‘”legally pursued” for my last (now deleted) Instagram post,

“The photo is by a Paparazzi & is of me on the street outside an event last week. These people make money off us everyday, LEGALLY stalking us day in and day out.

“All this to say that it is not spoken about enough the mental/emotional toll that this kind of press has on people, days I (& countless others) have stayed inside because I just don’t want my photo taken.”

“For someone to take a situation where I was trying to be open, and sue me for a photo I FOUND ON TWITTER (with no photographers name on the image), for a photo he has already been paid for by whatever outlet put it online (!!!), is absurd…” she continued.

“I had no way of knowing which of the 15+ photographers outside that day took these exact photos; if the person had just commented on my photo I would have been happy to tag and give credit.”

Gigi called for the paparazzi to stop taking action against social media accounts run by her fans who also share the pictures on their pages.

She wrote: “To the paparazzi, I understand that this is how you make your living, and I respect that this is something I must accept with my job.

“But there is a line. We are human beings, and sometimes it takes a lot of courage to engage with you because of the resentment I feel for the negative parts of these experiences.

“Most importantly, demanding money from young fans (who post pictures you stalk us to get!! & photos that have already been paid for and distributed by press-outlets) and having their fan-accounts shut down. (when you don’t know what the fan base community means to them), is just wrong.”

Friends and fans of the star were quick to offer words of support, with many praising the model for raising an important issue within the industry.

“Well said sister! Thank you,” Gigi’s younger sister Bella commented, while her pal Kylie Jenner wrote: “We’re ‘public figures’ and it’s legal for them to invade our privacy. It’s pretty disappointing, we gotta change this.”

Fellow model Ruby Rose added: “So much yes. It’s a double standard I’ve never understood.”
