Bella Ha­did's mother never let her wear high heels

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Bella Ha­did's mother only let her have a "cus­tom pair" of horse rid­ing boots when she was younger. The 20-year-old model has ad­mit­ted Yolanda, 53, had very strict rules when she was grow­ing up, and her par­ent was adamant the young­ster was go­ing to com­plete her ed­u­ca­tion, as­sist in the barn, and could only treat her­self to footwear suit­able for horse rid­ing and muck­ing out in­stead of high heel shoes she couldn't walk in. Speak­ing about her up­bring­ing to InStyle mag­a­zine, the brunette beauty said: "My mom was like, 'Hell no, you're not do­ing that. You are go­ing to go to school and the barn, and if you want a cus­tom pair of rid­ing boots, then you can have that. But you don't need 10 pairs of high heels be­cause you don't even wear high heels.'"

But by the time the fash­ion muse hit 18 years old she was "100 per cent in­de­pen­dent", as she owned de­signer gar­ments, plat­form shoes and had bought her own apart­ment. She ex­plained: "I'm not say­ing I don't love my job, but peo­ple think modelling is a bulls**t thing to be­come more fa­mous. "I was 100 per­cent in­de­pen­dent by the time I was 18, and I paid for my own apart­ment." But Bella doesn't credit her 'The Real Housewives of Bev­erly Hills' mother or her 68-year-old fa­ther, Mo­hamed Ha­did, for her suc­cess and has claimed her strong work ethic helped her to achieve great things. She said: "That wasn't be­cause of my par­ents. I worked my ass off for two years."

While Bella boasts a suc­cess­ful ca­reer at the helm of the fash­ion business, which has seen her front cam­paigns for de­signer brands in­clud­ing Fendi and Bal­main, she can't help but feel like "a piece of s**t" be­cause trolls on so­cial me­dia make her feel that way. Speak­ing about the strug­gles she faces, she said: "Imag­ine that some­body is telling you that you're a piece of s**t ev­ery day on so­cial me­dia. You kind of feel like, 'Well, am I a piece of s**t?' You don't re­ally know." — Bang Showbiz
