Gigi and Bella Hadid unfollowed Kim Kardashian after she tried to get clarity on their position on the current Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict.
According to a familiar source, Gigi and Bella posted about Armenia last weekend to raise awareness about the ongoing conflict with Azerbaijan.
“The girls got backlash online so they deleted those posts,” the source told British newspaper The Sun.
The source added that Kardashian, who has Armenian heritage, later found out that Gigi and Bella may have been sympathetic to Azerbaijan, which led her to text the sisters. They allegedly did not respond to a request for comment about their position regarding the conflict.
The source revealed: “Kim texted both of them, reaching out to try to inform them about the conflict because she has been raising awareness about Armenia’s cause, but Bella and Gigi did not take that well and got upset.
However, some people on Twitter have alleged that Bella and Gigi Hadid had donated money to Azerbaijan. The user tweeted: “I was told by the people at Armenia Fund that she did and also her comments on Instagram are full of Azeris thanking her for her donation.”
The truth is – this whole story is all made up by Turkish and Azeri media. Gigi unfollowed Kim few days before Kim’s fund raising post. Bella unfollowed Kim just after the post. A few days later Bella liked the post and unliked it a few hours later. Now she’s following Kim again. Seems there’s something else between Gigi and Kim that we don’t know, but it has nothing to do with the current conflict.
