After walking in the Max Mara show during Milan Fashion Week, the model was manhandled by Vitalii Sediuk, the notorious celebrity prankster.
A man who tried to grab the 21 year-old model from behind as she left a fashion event in Italy was met with a swift jab of her elbow to his face.
In videos of the altercation, Hadid chased after the man before returning to her vehicle and asking security to find him. A frantic Gigi released her grip on her sister's hand and elbowed his grinning face hard, before he released her and took off up the street as Gigi attempted to follow. However, when Gigi was made aware of the story angle, she disputed it and insisted she was just defending herself from a stranger, not a fan. How dare that idiot think he has a right to man handle a complete stranger. The man quickly ran away and her own security staff held her back as she yelled, "who the fuck are you, you piece of shit".
Gigi Hadid has had a bit of a scary moment after a Milan Fashion Week show, but don't worry y'all.
After swatting away a serial prankster who attacked her on Thursday, Gigi Hadid joked that her boyfriend Zayn Malik's absence was her assailant's good fortune.
In a video obtained by TMZ, Hadid and model sister Bella are seen exiting a building flanked by security, as the two pose for pictures with a mob of fans.

He was also prime minister in 1996 when more than 100 civilians were killed while sheltering at a United Nations peacekeepers' base in the Lebanese village of Qana fired upon by Israel.
Gigi also hit the runway in a more conservative number with her breasts covered.
Actor Will Smith slapped him and Brad Pitt was granted an emergency restraining order against Sediuk after he assaulted him at the Maleficent premiere.
THANK YOU Rachel. To unknown article writer: fan?! "By doing this, I encourage the fashion industry to put true talents on the runway and Vogue covers instead of well-connected cute girls from Instagram", Sediuk told The Hollywood Reporter, taking credit. She's letting all of her fans know there is no shame in boldly defending yourself.
The Ukrainian media personality, Mr Sediuk took to Instagram to share his thoughts on the incident.
Sediuk added, "You can call it a manifest or a protest".
