Gigi Hadid potential juror in Harvey Weinstein rape trial

MANHATTAN — Supermodel Gigi Hadid is in the running to be a juror in Harvey Weinstein’s rape trial after telling a judge that she thinks she would be able to “keep an open mind on the facts.”

Hadid, who lives in Manhattan, turned heads Monday as part of the latest pool of 120 potential jurors summoned to a New York court for the case.

Hadid disclosed that she has met Weinstein and actress Salma Hayek, a potential witness, but said that she could remain impartial.

She was asked to return Thursday for additional questioning.

Weinstein is accused of raping a woman in a Manhattan hotel room in 2013 and sexually assaulting another in 2006.
