According to Page Six, the "Roar" singer is barred from entering China after a 2015 performance in Taiwan, in which she wore sunflowers on her dress just after the flower had become a famous symbol for Taiwanese independence protesters.

Hadid, who was number five on Forbes' list of the world's highest-paid female models past year, earning $9 million, had expressed her participation in the show in August.
David Cassidy in Critical Condition, Organs Failing
The performer initially kept the disease a secret, but went public after concert footage showed him struggling to recall lyrics. The Partridge Family alum apparently is suffering from liver and kidney failure and is in dire need of transplants.
The controversy does not seem to stop as another recent report by Page Six claimed that singer Katy Perry has also been denied entry into China because the Swish Swish hitmaker caused a stir during her Asia tour in 2015.
Perry has not commented publicly on the reported ban.

Others are highly upset that Gigi is out of the show, and they're blaming Victoria's Secret for her absence using the hashtag #VSShowIsOver. It wasn't immediately clear why the models would be barred from walking the runway Shanghai.
