The 24-year-old appeared in Manhattan Supreme Court on Monday along with over 100 other New Yorkers. She raised her hand when Judge James Burke asked if anyone knew a member of either side’s legal team.
Hadid, who was sitting in the jury box said: “I have met the defendant.” When asked if she could remain fair and impartial she replied, “yes.”
She also raised her hand when Judge Burke read a list of witnesses and asked the jurors if they knew anyone.
“I have met Salma Hayek and possibly Ryan Beatty,” revealed Hadid.
She took a questionnaire home and was told to come back Thursday. Then, she was later seen leaving the courthouse where she did not comment to reporters. So far, over 100 jurors have been asked to fill out the questionnaire, which provides details about their backgrounds and ability to maintain impartiality.
