According to details Gigi Hadid is being sued over a photo she posted of ex boyfriend Zayn Malik. New York based professional photographer Robert O’Neil has filed a lawsuit against the supermodel in the Southern District of New York, citing copyright infringement. Photographer Robert O’Neil is seeking to be awarded “damages of up to $150,000” for Gigi Hadid posting his photo of Zayn Malik.
