Bella Hadid’s mum, Yolanda, is facing a backlash for ‘allowing her daughter to have irreversible surgery at 14 years old’. 

In an interview with Vogue magazine, the 25-year-old admitted that she underwent a nose job as a teenager, as she was insecure growing up.

The model told the publication: “I wish I had kept the nose of my ancestors. I think I would have grown into it.”

After reading the interview, Hadid’s fans took to social media and questioned why her mum gave her permission to have the intrusive surgery.

One tweeted: “Everyone is like, ‘How did Yolanda let 14-year-old Bella have a nose job?’. Like, WHO do you think put the idea in her head that she wasn’t pretty enough in the first place?”

“I honestly feel so sad for Bella because she always talks about how growing up she always felt like a black sheep/outsider in her family, while also feeling bad about herself. And for Yolanda to basically confirm her thoughts by letting her get a nose job at 14 is so horrible,” a second penned.

Outraged, a third commented: “Yolanda Hadid made Bella get a nose job at 14 when she was so young??? That woman has earned a place in hell.”

“The fact that Yolanda got Bella a nose job at 14 is so messed up,” a fourth wrote.

In the past, Hadid has opened up about her mental health struggles, and how she suffers from ‘breakdowns and burnouts’.

At the time, the model took to Instagram and shared a series of crying selfies, alongside the length caption post: “For anyone struggling, please remember that. Sometimes all you’ve gotta hear is that you’re not alone.

“So from me to you, you’re not alone. I love you, I see you, and I hear you.

“There is always light at the end of the tunnel, and the rollercoaster always comes to a complete stop at some point…[but] it does get better.”

She added: “It took me a long time to get that in my mind, but I’ve had enough breakdowns and burnouts to know this: if you work hard enough on yourself, spending time alone to understand your traumas, triggers, joys, and routine.

“You will always be able to understand or learn more about your own pain and how to handle it.”
