As TMZ reports, in Los Angeles Superior Court this week Judge Craig Karlan argued that since the house was built in flagrant violation of safety codes, it poses a “clear and present danger” to Hadid’s neighbors and thus has to be demolished.
The real estate developer built the house higher than permits allowed and added balconies, bedrooms, and an IMAX theater that had not been approved by the City of Los Angeles.
Since 2011, Mohamed Hadid–father to Gigi, Bella, Anwar, and additional Hadids, like Alana and Marielle–has been ensconced in a legal battle regarding the construction of an obscenely enormous mansion in Los Angeles’s tony Bel Air neighborhood.
Back in May 2017, Hadid pled no contest to various misdemeanor charges relating to the mansion’s construction, and in July of that year he was basically given a slap on the wrist, sentenced to 200 hours of community service, three years’ probation, and approximately $3,000 in fines.
Shapiro described the mansion at the time as “safe as any building that’s ever been built. ” But in 2019 the law disagrees!
The house, which remains half built, comes in at 30,000 square feet and violates multiple building permits.
Mohamed Hadid's "Starship Enterprise" will be no more. https://t.co/2j2IkYDR98— W Magazine (@wmag) November 25, 2019
