In the midst of the #TimesUp movement, Bella and Gigi Hadid's father, Mohamed Hadid has been accused of raping model, Miranda Vee.
The accusations came out after Kate Upton called out fashion label GUESS for keeping Paul Marciano as their creative director.
"It's disappointing that such an iconic women's brand @GUESS is still empowering Paul Marciano as their creative director #metoo," she posted, as well as, "He shouldn't be allowed to use his power in the industry to sexually and emotionally harass women #metoo."
The post then urged Miranda to open up as well, scaring screen shots of a text conversation between her and Mohamed. "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 apartment where he sexually harassed me & after that passed me on to his friend mohammed who was going to meet me for 'coffee' i thought it was a professional meeting but it was just me, him & champagne where he date raped me in a apartment. All to get a test shoot for guess. LAST year when I tryed [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. #TIEMSUP Why should we have to stay quiet because they have the power? #METOO.
Mohamed, has now told TMZ that although he DID meet Miranda about two years ago, her claims are “totally untrue.”
“When we met it was not a date and not once did I touch her,” he told the site.
Right now, Mohamed is apparently talking to lawyers to sue Miranda for defamation.
