Former model Yolanda rose to fame on the third series of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills where she remained in the cast for three series.

In 2011, the Holland native married Grammy award winning songwriter David Foster who became stepfather to her three children Bella, Gigi and Anwar from her previous marriage to Mohammed Hadid.

In 2018, she premiered her own reality show Making a Model with Yolanda Hadid, however, it was cancelled after one season.

In October 2017, Yolanda announced she would be divorcing David Foster and the same month she went public with businessman Joey Jingoli.

It was reported at the time that their split was partly due to David’s response to Yolanda’s Lyme disease.

She had written about her experiences of living with the disease in a book Believe Me: My Battle with the Invisible Disability of Lyme Disease.

David Foster was less pleased to hear his name being mentioned in Yolanda’s memoir.

"Yolanda had to write a book about her journey with her disease. In a way, I was a little bit of a drive by shooting in the book, but uhm, we’re all good now.

"She’s happy, she’s healthy. She’s with her kids in New York, she’s on her farm. In a ten year, nine-year relationship you can find ten bad things to say about anybody," he shared.

"And it’s a little disappointing that she went there a few times but the main thing is she’s happy, she’s healthy and her and I are good."

Addressing the criticism at the time, the mum of three explained her understanding of the story.

"You know, David and I had an incredible seven-year run, and when I got sick, things went down, and it's just part of life.

"What I wrote wasn't about putting shade on anybody or my ex-husband; it was just to share that when people are chronically ill, it just strains the marriage, and I want people to know that that's normal.

"It wasn't about throwing shade at David. Like I said, we had an amazing time, and it was just the end of our cycle together," Yolanda said.

David said that he still has a relationship with his stepdaughters. "I mean divorce puts a strain on everybody, yeah but Gigi and Bella are doing amazing and they’re so busy that I don’t talk to them much but we do text, yeah we’re still good," he told DailyMailTV.
