Supermodel Gigi Hadid among potential jurors for Weinstein trial

Supermodel Gigi Hadid is among the pool of potential jurors for Harvey Weinstein’s rape trial in New York.

The 24-year-old, who lives in Manhattan and studied criminal psychology at The New School, is one of 120 people summoned to take part in jury selection for the case.

On Monday, she told a judge that although she had met Weinstein in the past, she felt she would be able to “keep an open mind on the facts” should she be selected.

Jury selection at the New York Supreme Court began earlier in January – more than two years since dozens of allegations against Weinstein came to widespread public attention and gave momentum to the #MeToo movement.

Questioned during an initial screening process, Hadid also disclosed that she had previously met actress Salma Hayek, who is a potential witness in the trial, but again said she could remain impartial.
