Gigi Hadid’s Dad Mohamed Hadid Hit With Criminal Charges For Violating Code On Unfinished Mega Mansion

Mohamed Hadid, the father of supermodels Gigi and Bella Hadid, is in some serious trouble after being slammed with criminal charges for violating the building code while constructing his mega mansion.

Violation of multiple building codes in L.A.

Mohamed Hadid’s gigantic multimillion dollar mega mansion’s construction came to a halt once the city of Los Angeles slapped criminal charges on the father-of-five for multiple building code violations, according to Radar Online.

Paparazzi snapped photos of the huge property with a half-built house that sits in ruin while Hadid faces some hefty fines.

Yolanda Hadid’s ex-husband, 68, was hit was criminal charges after starting construction on the 30,000 square foot home in Bel Air.

The District Attorney charged the real estate developer with three counts of violating the Department of Building and Safety regulations, even seeking jail time for the violations.

Gigi and Bella Hadid’s father began building the mega mansion in 2014, but he was soon forced to stop construction when he was hit with the criminal charges. The home was set to include an IMAX private movie theater that city officials claimed was never approved.

The mansion was abandoned during the lengthy court battle but the Second Wives Club star fought back against neighbor’s requests to tear it down.

Hadid told Town & Country magazine that he would never demolish that house, saying “This house will last forever.”

“Bel Air will fall before this will.”

Finally. Home Sweet Home. #belair #houseofhadid

The mega mansion’s structure is reportedly threatening the home below. The enormous home is being built on Strada Vecchia Road, but neighbors have allegedly been calling it the Starship Enterprise because of its huge size.

The city of Los Angeles claimed that the large areas of the home like the decks and bedrooms were never approved and therefore were not legally built.

Fines and potential demolition

Prosecutors told a judge to sentence Mohamed Hadid to hundreds of hours of community service, $1000 fines for each of the three violation charges, and a $250,000 contribution to a community improvement fund for the crime.

Hadid will be sentenced next month after pleading no contest.

The 68-year-old real estate mogul failed to appear in court this week but did have his attorneys enter the “no contest” plea for him in Los Angeles County Superior Court on May 30.

The Senior Assistant City Attorney Tina Hess wants the judge to order a bond that will “ensure that if Hadid cannot or will not finish the building legally, the city will have the money to demolish it.”

Despite the District Attorney’s wishes, Mohamed Hadid ultimately faces no jail time.

His neighbor Joseph Horacek reportedly said, “You still have this horrendous thing hanging over the hillside.”

It has been.. a bliss And a walk in the Park. A 5 year adventure in love…
