Bella Hadid has hit back at claims she has had surgery and fillers, urging haters to ‘scan’ her face for themselves.
The 21-year-old has been the subject of rumors she has had a nose job and other physical enhancements since the start of her modelling career in 2013.
However she told InStyle on Thursday that she was too ‘scared’ of fillers as she didn’t want to ‘mess up’ her genetically blessed features.

‘People think I got all this surgery or did this or that. And you know what? We can do a scan of my face, darling,’ she said.
‘I’m scared of putting fillers into my lips. I wouldn’t want to mess up my face.’
And it’s not the first time Bella has denied such accusation, clapping back at a comment on social media last month.
A fan account shared a 50/50 of fellow model and friend Kendall Jenner and Bella both wearing ensembles without a bra.

After an Instagram user wrote: ‘2 fake b*tches sitting in a tree, first comes the nose job, then come the lips, oh and don’t forget the built in cheeks’, the younger Hadid sister wasn’t having a bar of it.
‘I wish you would know either of our personalities,’ began Bella. ‘And not only that, I wish you would only grasp a heart of your own. Blessings to you sweetheart. Jealously is a cry for help that I wish I could help you with.’
Bella also admitted during her InStyle interview that she had suffered from ‘serious depression’ in 2017.

She said it stemmed from bullied during school and added that the experience now makes her sympathetic to haters because she knows there must be something else going on in their lives.
‘I’ve learned that people are going to hate you and there’s nothing you can do about it except be yourself and love yourself,’ she said.
‘We all have our stuff to overcome, and that’s what I want to preach to the kids these days. I went through a serious depression last year, and I think it stemmed from when I was younger and [being bullied by] the kids in school.’
Sister-to-sister: Bella also admitted during the interview that she had suffered from ‘serious depression’ in 2017 and used to be jealous of elder sister Gigi’s athletic build
Speaking about her adolescent years, Bella also admitted said she was always self-conscious of her ‘big hips’ and was jealous of elder sister Gigi’s athletic build.
‘I had a small waist and big hips and was kind of chubby,’ she confessed.
‘I love them now, but I was always self-conscious of my hips – whereas my sister had a six-pack and was very athletic. And I thought I had a weird face. I remember very distinctively getting bullied because of my features.’
Bella, the daughter of real estate developer Mohamed Hadid and model Yolanda Hadid, is now one of the world’s most in-demand models, and has walked the catwalk for Chanel, Oscar de la Renta, Lavin and more.
An insider made accusations to Star magazine in 2016 that Bella had gone ‘to town with her dad’s credit card’ to get her famous features.
‘Bella has always been hugely insecure,’ said the friend.
‘But it really ramped up when Gigi (her elder sister) started modeling. She really went to town with her dad’s credit card and it practically unrecognizable.’
But speaking to Cosmopolitan.com earlier this year, the Victoria’s Secret model put her face changes down to growing into her skin, being able to contour and give herself a healthy glow following her Lyme disease diagnosis in 2012.
‘I was also kind of chubbier growing up until I was 15, so there were a lot of things I had to grow into – I definitely had to grow into my face a lot. I wasn’t very secure with myself until recently.’
‘I don’t contour every day, but it’s life-changing for sure. I mean contouring your nose and jawline. Whew!’ she said.
