This still very wealthy celebrity/reality star with equally low on the list offspring and exes, thinks he can slip one by investigators, but the feds are going to look through everything in his latest gambit and this will be much worse than if he had just paid the fine in the first place and done what he was ordered to do.

Is Mohamed Hadid ‘Too Broke’ to Tear Down Bel Air Mansion?
In the most surprising turn yet in a case stuffed with bizarre plot twists, internationally famous property developer Mohamed Hadid — the Rolls Royce-driving father of top model-influencers Bella and Gigi Hadid — doesn’t have the money to tear down his partially-built Bel Air mansion, according to his attorney Bruce Rudman. The revelation comes just days after city officials filed a motion requiring Hadid to demolish the structure.
At this point, the 71-year-old developer has been involved in contentious litigation related to the unfinished house for well over five years. He bought the property in 2011 with the intention of building a 14,000 sq. ft. modern home; by 2014, however, the project had somehow swollen to 30,000 square feet of megamansion-sized space in a 70-foot tall, six-story structure — all without the proper permits, according to neighbors, who were livid that Hadid flagrantly ignored stop-work orders on the swollen hillside manse and destabilized the hillside above their homes with his construction.
No fewer than five of Hadid’s neighbors have either sued him or given public interviews harshly criticizing him and his mansion project, which they’ve sardonically christened the “Starship Enterprise.” Shortly before her death, wheelchair-bound former singer Carole Cramer spoke to the Daily Mail, accusing Hadid of telling her gardener she was a “bitch.” And in 2016, multibillionaire Walmart heiress Nancy Walton Laurie demanded $90,000 from Hadid, alleging his construction damaged the roots of her “cherished” eucalyptus tree, something he disputed.
But Hadid also dealt with far graver legal matters. In 2016, he pled no contest to criminal charges related to the illegal construction, and was sentenced to 200 hours of community service. He was also accused of bribing an L.A. city inspector in connection with the project, which eventually led to an FBI probe. – Source
Mohamed Hadid files for bankruptcy after being ordered to demolish ‘starship enterprise’
Mohamed Hadid, father of supermodel sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid, has filed for bankruptcy just days after being ordered to tear down his Bel Air mega-mansion.
Hadid’s company, 901 Strada LLC, officially filed for reorganization in federal bankruptcy court Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving. Hadid, 71, claims the company is currently $10-50 million in debt due to the construction of his half-built, 30,000-square-foot mansion that has been dubbed the “Starship Enterprise,” according to documents obtained by TMZ.
Itemized debts listed in the filing include $386,000 owed to a design and management company, $200,000 owed to a building materials company, over $93,000 owed to a demolition company and over $35,000 owed to plumbers.
The business tycoon was sued by his neighbors in 2018 over the property, which they claimed was illegally built and unstable. – Source
