Bella Hadid was forced to call the police last night after finding her alleged stalker outside her New York City apartment. The model reported that a man had been stalking and harassing her since 17 December, a spokesperson for the NYPD confirmed to People.
A man named Ryan Perez was arrested at 9.35pm on Thursday after leaving “numerous unwanted threatening messages” on Hadid’s social media accounts and then arriving at her home. He was charged with aggravated harassment and stalking. The investigation is still ongoing, but it is not clear whether or not he is still in custody.
Hadid did not let the incident spoil her evening though. She later posted on Instagram Stories that she was out celebrating close friend Samuel Krost’s birthday with friends and elder sister Gigi Hadid, who had just closed Jeremy Scott’s fashion show on the first day of New York Fashion Week.
