The net worth of Yolanda Hadid, a model and reality TV star, is $45 million. Although Yolanda Hadid’s personal modelling career eventually faded, she became much more well-known as the mother of Bella Hadid and Gigi Hadid. Yolanda Hadid is a well-known face now because of her participation in several reality series. In her later years, she has written and started several businesses.
On January 11, 1964, Yolanda van den Herik became known as Yolanda Hadid Foster. She spent her childhood doing farm work like milking cows and riding horses in a tiny Dutch town. Yolanda’s sibling Leo had a vital role in her upbringing. Her dad was killed in an auto accident when she was only seven years old. This was a difficult time for everyone, but it made Yolanda’s mom stronger and more committed to providing for her kids.
At the age of 13, Yolanda got her first job in an effort to help support her family. She was employed by a Chinese eatery in the capacity of dishwasher. Furthermore, she held a job at the supermarket in town. Despite having a full schedule between work, school, and farm duties, the young woman pulled it off.
Early Modeling Career:
At the age of 16, Yolanda caught the attention of a famous designer. She was assisting a friend with a hair show when Dutch designer Frans Molenaar saw her online and asked if she would be interested in filling in as a replacement model for his forthcoming fashion show. Yolanda accepted the offer, and when she walked the runway, she shocked Eileen Ford. Ford Models’ owner, the eponymous Eileen Ford, signed the teenager on the spot.
Yolanda lived the life of a jet-setting supermodel after landing a contract with Eileen. She walked the runway and posed for images at fashion shows and photo shoots all over the world, including in Sydney, Paris, Milan, Tokyo, Cape Town, and Los Angeles. She had been modelling for nearly 15 years when she turned 30 in 1994.
Yolanda Hadid Shares Her Lyme Disease Struggle
Yolanda Hadid is opening up about the health issues she’s been facing. The mother of models Gigi and Bella Hadid announced her return to social media on July 31, writing on Instagram, “After the passing of my mother I truly struggled with depression followed by a lyme [disease] relapse.” The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has been in detox for nine months.
Yolanda lost her mother, Ans van den Herik, to cancer when she was 78 years old. ‘The mental stress and sadness greatly affected my immune system,’ Yolanda stated. “My smartphone habit was not helpful; it prevented me from being fully present in my life.”
The 58-year-old woman said her unhealthy attachment to social media was preventing her from experiencing joy in life. She said, “It’s so easy to forget to live and love your own story in favour of other people’s.” “Compared to making a phone call, sending a text message is incredibly convenient. Everyone does it sometimes.”
Yolanda purchased a three-plus acre empty lot in Malibu for $4.5 million in June 2007. To that end, she built a home with more than 11,000 square feet of space. She listed the mansion for $23.5 million in 2013 but received no offers. For $19.5 million, she ultimately parted ways with the home in 2016. Black America’s wealthiest individual, Robert F. Smith, bought it for $1 billion.
