Kendall's Disappearing Act 

Her sister Kim Kardashian's been quiet on social media for over a month since her Paris robbery, and now 21-year-old Kendall Jenner seems to have followed suit. 

The model, who posted the most liked photo of 2015, shut down her popular account last week, leaving her millions of followers wondering if verbal abuse had driven her off the photo-sharing site. 

Kendall has been receiving more criticism than usual in recent months. Her photo shoot with Vogue España where she posed as a ballerina enraged professional dancers, while her semi-nude pictures on Instagram have also not gone down well with the masses.

However, when appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last week, Kendall explained that she made the move because she needed a break. She said: “I would wake up in the morning and look at it first thing, I would go to bed and it would be the last thing I looked at. I felt a little too dependent on it so I wanted to take a minute.”

Gigi Gets Defensive

Gigi Hadid’s romance with former One Direction singer Zayn Malik has moved at lightening speed ever since the genetically-blessed duo hooked up late last year. However, a dark cloud continues to hang over Gigi and Zayn's relationship in the form of his previous fiancée, Little Mix singer, Perrie Edwards.

Zayn and Perrie, both 23, dated for four years and were engaged for two, before the Pillowtalk singer allegedly dumped her over text message last year. And now with Perrie’s latest music hitting the airwaves, she appears to have taken the opportunity to take swipes at Zayn in the track Shout Out To My Ex.

In an original draft of the song, Zayn’s new love Gigi also gets shaded, referred to as “some model chick”. As a result of the dig, 21-year-old Gigi is said to have branded Perrie “immature” and told her to “get over” her and Zayn’s failed relationship. A source said: 'Gigi wishes Perrie would just move on and leave her and Zayn alone.”

Bella Branded Abnormal

She’s just split from her boyfriend of almost two years, singer The Weeknd, and the bad news continues for Bella Hadid, as she’s found herself blasted for being “too thin” and “frail”.

The 20-year-old model is the star of Nike’s latest campaign, but as soon as the pictures of her collaboration with the sports brand were unveiled, commentators branded her “abnormally thin” and she was deemed a total wrong fit for the sports brand as her body is “not athletic”. As a result of Bella’s ribcage also visible in some shots, both Bella and Nike have been accused of promoting unrealistic stereotypes for young girls and “endorsing eating disorders”.

Bella, who is set to appear in the upcoming Victoria’s Secret lingerie show, is known for her killer figure, but has she perhaps taken the dieting too far as a result of her recent heartbreak? Bella and Can't Feel My Face singer The Weeknd surprised fans when they called it quits this month after almost two years together.
