Yolanda Hadid once admitted that she believed her supermodel daughter Gigi & # 39; lesbian & # 39; was because she liked to wear baggy basketball shirts to school.
The 55-year-old made the confession in a newly revealed clip of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which was released by Bravo as part of a mashup of scenes with Gigi and her sister Bella, and sees Yolanda telling her daughter that she believed her tomboy-like fashion choices in third grade meant she was gay.
In the scene, which takes place in the kitchen of the parental home in California, Gigi and her mother discuss the budding model's desire to return to her club volleyball team – admitting with Yolanda that she is afraid that the sport will make her daughter too & # 39; sizable & # 39; to succeed as a catwalk star.
Really? Yolanda Hadid once told daughter Gigi, who was shown at a Tommy Hilfiger show in 2016, that she & # 39; lesbian & # 39; was because she wore basketball shirts in third grade
Sportswoman: in an excavated clip from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Yolanda tells a then 17-year-old Gigi (depicted in high school) that she could not play a volleyball and model
Controversy: the mashup clip shared by Bravo on YouTube has given rise to a fuss of fans who are Yolanda & # 39; scary & # 39; for how she talks to her daughters
& # 39; Volleyball is a very masculine sport. Modeling a very feminine thing, & # 39; Yolanda tells the then 17-year-old during dinner for her family in the season three episode that aired in 2012.
& # 39; She has to build her career and that means that sometimes we have to give up things that we like to do, & # 39; Yolanda explains in her testimony, noticing that Gigi wants to be a model, but she suddenly misses the time she spent playing volleyball.
Internship mother? In many of the scenes, Yolanda, now 55, reminds Gigi to follow her diet
& # 39; They train these girls four hours a day after school, so their bodies are large and bulky. I mean, they eat like men. I wanted her to develop as a woman. & # 39;
The conversation in athletics theme then evokes Gigi, who is now 23, to remember her love for one particular sport: basketball.
Gigi reminds her mother of a time in third grade when she only wore baggy basketball clothing to school, and said: & Do you think in third grade that I wore basketball clothing to school every day?
& # 39; Yes, a Laker shirt, right? & # 39; Yolanda notes before she admits: & # 39; I thought my daughter … was a lesbian. & # 39;
Since the episode was filmed seven years ago, Gigi has spoken again about her love of sport in third grade, before turning her talents toward volleyball, noted in a previous interview: & # 39; In third grade I played basketball with the boys every day during lunch.
& # 39; I had braces that were yellow and purple, and I wore full Laker uniforms at school. & # 39;
Fan: Despite her mother's remark, Gigi & # 39; s love for basketball has remained, while occasionally attending games in New York and LA, as she did with then-friend Cody Simpson in 2015
Romance: Gigi also dated the former One Direction singer Zayn Malik and the couple, seen in 2017 and exactly in 2016, had an on-again-off-again romance in three years
And although she has certainly grown outside the days of club volleyball, she has found other ways to celebrate her love of sport, which includes her modeling career.
In February 2014, just a few years after the RHOBH scenes were recorded, Gigi participated in the Sports Illustrated Beach Volleyball tournament in Miami and came out as the winner of the entire competition.
Then, in September 2016, she debuted with an incredibly sporty collection of designs as part of her collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger – including a basketball jersey dress that might have been a tribute to her third-class days.
Gigi, who has been associated with a number of A-list men since her mother, also made comments about her sexuality, and was also a guest at a number of basketball games in LA, as well as in New York City.
In 2015, she attended a game between the Brooklyn Nets and the New York Knicks alongside her then-boyfriend Cody Simpson, who was two years old.
After her relationship with Cody, Gigi had a short romance with Joe Jonas, as well as a rumor that she threw her good friend Lewis Hamilton.
She went on and off with One Direction & # 39; s Zayn Malik until the beginning of this year.
The comment is not the only controversial thing that comes to light in the mashup, which has come under fire from various fans who consider Yolanda as & # 39; scary & # 39; and & # 39; terrible & # 39; have been beaten because of the way she treats her daughters, especially when it comes to Gigi's diet and weight.

Transformation: Bella looked totally different when she was 16 years old. Rumors have circulated for years that she has undergone plastic surgery, but she has strongly denied the allegations
For example, in one scene Yolanda and Gigi are on one of her photo shoots. The teenager is getting ready to celebrate her birthday, and all she is looking forward to is breaking down her diet.
& # 39; I am so excited about the food & # 39 ;, she tells her mother. & # 39; Almost all of the food we eat is a kind of heart attack during a meal, but it will go so well. & # 39;
Yolanda says nothing about her daughter letting go on her birthday, but she warns her that she has to stay thin to book as a model.
& # 39; You can have a night that you are bad, anyway, & # 39; she says to Gigi. & # 39; Then you have to go on a diet again, because in Paris and Milan they find the girls just a tad on the poor side. & # 39;
Yolanda still talks about Gigi & # 39; s diet in the next season four clip, but this time she praises her for her hard work. & # 39;
& # 39; You are doing so well, Gigi, & # 39; she tells her during a shoot. & # 39; Aren't you proud? It is difficult to practice six days a week. It's hard not to eat sugar, and it's hard to eat a salad every day, but now you can see how it pays. & # 39;

Background: Bella and her younger brother, Anwar, are also in the scene, but the focus is on Gigi who wants to play volleyball again
Although Gigi admits that she sometimes hates training, she agrees that it is all worth it because she is so happy to be an emerging model.
The majority of the footage focuses on Gigi and her emerging modeling career, although some teenage Bella is present in some clips.
In one scene, Gigi and Bella plunder their mother's closet for the oldest Hadid trip to London for a recording with the Grazia magazine.
& # 39; It's cute if you have girls the same size as you, & # 39; says Yolanda in her testimony. & # 39; So now they can borrow things from me, but sometimes they don't bring it back. So that's not so cute. & # 39;
While Gigi proudly tells a conversation she had with a banker after depositing a number of work checks, Bella admits that she probably only has about $ 8 in her name.
The following clip shows how Gigi makes a crying speech at her graduation party, but the conversation returns to her diet after her mother surprises her with a cake with one of her modeling photos.
Yikes: Before Gigi gives her birthday party, her mother warns her to go back to her diet, because they love girls who are just a little on the lean side in Milan and Paris.

Pride: & # 39; It's hard to exercise six days a week. It's hard not to eat sugar and it's hard to eat a salad every day, but now you can see how it pays off, & # 39; Yolanda tells Gigi in one of her shoots
Evolution: Gigi walked the runway of Desigual during the New York Fashion Week in 2012, just a few years in her career. She is on the catwalk at the Isabel Marant show in February
Although Yolanda has given her a cake in honor of her big move, it seems that she does not want her daughter to eat it.
& # 39; This is the hardest thing to be on our diet & # 39 ;, she tells her daughter while cutting her graduation cake.
& # 39; I need some luck, & # 39; says Gigi, but Yolanda does not seem convinced by her logic.
& # 39; Eh, & # 39; she says, and things only get worse when Gigi forces her mother to have a slice of cake.
Yolanda takes a minute before she decides she's done.
& # 39; Gigi is in charge of her own diet, but to be at your best weight, you have to make the right choices & # 39 ;, the momager explains in her confession.
The following scene shows Yolanda bringing Gigi to her first apartment in New York City. While Gigi studied criminal psychology at The New School in the fall of 2013, her mother wasn't really on board.
& # 39; I always felt she would take a year off and just work and earn as much money as possible, and she didn't want that, & # 39; Yolanda tells the camera.
The mother also explains that Gigi should have a roommate, but it turned out that the parents of the other girls wanted her to live in a student house with other freshmen.
Borrowing from mom: in one scene, Bella and Gigi plunder their mother's closet. & # 39; It's cute if you have girls the same size as you, & # 39; says Yolanda in her testimony
Choices: When Yolanda brings Gigi to her first apartment in New York, she admits she doesn't want to live in a student house because she wants her to focus on modeling
& # 39; I didn't want Gigi to live in a student house because I wanted her in a more working environment & # 39 ;, Yolanda says. & # 39; Children's party and going out and getting drunk and I wanted her to really focus on her career, where she would be at five o'clock & # 39; had to get up in the morning and go to work all day and take pictures all day. You know, that was important to me. & # 39;
Yolanda finally got her wish when Gigi stopped her studies to focus on her modeling career.
Bella wanted to concentrate on modeling from the very beginning, but their mother was only willing to let her quit school if she threw six figures in the cupboard.
In the final scene in the clip, Yolanda and her daughters hang out in Gigi's apartment and help Bella take photos for her model portfolio.
& # 39; They are the black swan and the white swan, and of course, as sisters grow old, there will always be competition, but Bella will do it her way, & # 39; Yolanda says about her daughters.
& # 39; If someone is looking for a brunette with blue eyes, Gigi will not get the job. If they are looking for a completely American girl, they are not going to hire Bella, & she adds.
# I mean, it's just a big competitive company. If it is meant for them, they will survive in it and be successful. & # 39;
The video has been viewed more than 3.5 million times and some people went in the comments to show how different Bella looks at the age of 22 than when she was 16 years old.
& # 39; I still don't understand how Bella influences an entire generation as a model with a complete face of an operation and nobody talks about it, "someone wrote, while someone else said: & # 39; Bella & # 39; s face is completely different. & # 39;
Another added: & # 39; And they are trying to say that Bella did not have plastic surgery to see how she is doing now. & # 39;
Since Bella started her modeling career in 2013, rumors have circulated that she has undergone a nose job and other physical improvements, but she has strongly denied the allegations.
The clips also made some people feel bad for Gigi and Bella because of the way Yolanda followed their diet and pushed & # 39; them in modeling at the start of their career.
& # 39; Oh my god her mother is scary … I would run away if I were Gigi & # 39 ;, one person said while someone else admitted: & # 39; I never really cared about Gigi or Bella, but after seeing this … I feel so bad for them. & # 39;
& # 39; Wait, this really makes me sad … as if I'd have such a terrible self-esteem if my mother treated me that way, & # 39; someone else wrote.
Gigi and Bella are now two of the most famous models in the world, and their younger brother Anwar, 19, is also a catwalk star.
Their mother's fans defended her behavior and emphasized that she was just being honest with them about how the modeling industry works.
& # 39; If she didn't push, nothing would have turned out the way it did! & # 39; someone noted, while another person praised her upbringing style.
& # 39; Good to push her child. Now they are all successful, & the fan wrote.
