She is expected to return for further screening on Thursday. On the fifth day of jury selection, the 24-year-old socialite was summoned by the court along with 119 other prospective jurors for the case slated to begin January 22.

UPDATE, 1/13/20, 3:38pm ET: "The Office of Court Administration told HollywoodLife that, "[Gigi Hadid] reported for jury duty today with 120 other prospective jurors.

Hadid's presence added flair to what has been a tedious jury selection process.

Burke then asked her if she could be fair and impartial.

She did not comment to reporters as she left the courthouse.

Weinstein, 67, is accused of raping a woman in a Manhattan hotel room in 2013 and sexually assaulting another in 2006.

He insists any sexual activity was consensual.

Rudolph Giuliani was picked as the foreman of a civil jury while he was New York City's mayor in 1999. That man's lawyer later said that Giuliani's presence was detrimental to his case.

Both sides hope to deliver opening statements before the end of the month.

The 24-year-old is believed to now be in the pool of potential jurors who will decide the fate of the disgraced film exec, who is currently on trial in Manhattan on five counts pertaining to sexual assault, including two counts of predatory sexual assault, two counts of rape and one count of criminal sex act.

Burke last week refused to take himself off the case, after Weinstein's defence team accused him of bias.

Molly's tweets read: "Gigi Hadid was among 120 New Yorkers summoned for jury duty this morning at Harvey Weinstein's rape and sexual assault trial because mark my words, there will not be a tiresome moment".

The judge went on to read out a list of potential witnesses including the likes of Rosie Perez, Salma Hayek, Charlize Theron, and more.
