Yolanda Hadid married David Foster many years ago after they found love together. The two had both come out of previous marriages and divorces and Yolanda’s ex-husband, Mohamed Hadid, was featured on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It was clear that Hadid and her ex-husband were indeed good friends and could hang around each other without any problems. Yolanda had even met his future wife. But things were not as happy on the other side, as David Foster’s ex-wife, Linda Thomson, reveals in her new book. In her book, Little Thing Called Life, Linda reveals that David was quite controlling in their marriage, something Yolanda may have been subject to as well.
According to a new Radar Online report, Yolanda Hadid has never spoken badly about her ex-husband, but his ex-wife Thompson has a few things to say. In fact, she reveals that the controlling behavior started right after the honeymoon phase. He didn’t want her talking about her past marriage to Elvis Presley, and he didn’t like it when Bruce Jenner would stop by their home to see his sons, Brandon and Brody. It doesn’t sound like the man Yolanda Hadid married, as she was friends with her ex-husband and visited him all the time.

In addition, he supposedly had an interesting view on women. It’s no secret that Yolanda wasn’t working when they were married, other than filming The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. His ex-wife says he had an “antiqued,” “unrealistic” view of women, where he would prefer them to stay at home and take care of the house. And this is exactly what Yolanda Hadid did during their marriage.
“At times, he had an expectation that I was there to serve and take care of him, to make beds and do housework. At that time he didn’t believe that women should have careers. He found ambition in a woman to be unattractive,” Linda writes in her book, adding he told her to stop auditioning for roles. “I don’t want you being an actress because you might have to kiss somebody, and if you do, it’s not going to work for me.”

Hadid always knew where her husband was, especially when he was traveling. Yolanda always knew when he was seeing other celebrities or working on new music. But his ex-wife reveals that he would often “leave in a fit of anger” and “disappear” for weeks. That’s not something Yolanda Hadid experienced or shared on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. But Hadid did hear that Linda was saying things about David while she was filming, as Taylor Armstrong is a close friend of Thompson. But none of these issues came up when Yolanda Hadid and David divorced just last year.

“Sadly we have decided to go our separate ways,” the couple revealed to People magazine, adding, “We’ve shared nine beautiful and joyous years together. During that time we experienced love, friendship and the inevitable challenges that come with managing a marriage, careers, blended families and health issues.”
“We had a beautiful love story that I will treasure forever. Unfortunately it was not strong enough to withstand the circumstances that came our way,” Yolanda had previously said on Watch What Happens Live about her marriage, according to People.“The truth is that we both worked through the difficult time through the best of our ability, so rather than judging what went wrong, I pick to honor the great times that we shed the last nine years. There were a wealth of good times.”

It sounds like Yolanda Hadid has no plans of bashing her marriage to Foster these days, despite what Linda may say about their relationship. She knows that her three children have great relationships with David, and he even supported both Bella and Gigi Hadid at a fashion show just weeks after getting divorced. It sounds like there are no hard feelings in this family.
What do you think of Yolanda Hadid’s marriage to David? Do you think he may have been controlling in his marriage to Hadid as well?
