The accusation in the court docs states, in part (below):
“This action [lawsuit] arises out of Defendant’s unauthorized reproduction and public display of a copyrighted photograph of English singer and songwriter Zayn Malik, owned and registered by O’Neil, a New York based professional photographer … Gigi Hadid is not, and has never been, licensed or otherwise authorized to reproduce, publicly display, distribute and/or use the Photograph.”

“…to be awarded either actual damages and Defendant’s profits, gains or advantages of any kind attributable to Defendant’s infringement of Plaintiff’s Photograph [or] statutory damages of up to $150,000.”

She commented about that lawsuit as it was running its course during October 2018, too (below):
That was a moment!!!
