After his son and Princess Diana were killed in a tragic accident while in Paris, France, on August 31, 1997, Mohamed grew to become an avid believer of conspiracy theories surrounding their deaths.

Mohamed did not believe the official story put forward that concluded his son and partner were killed due to a paparazzi-induced high-speed car chase and driver negligence after allegedly drinking heavily that night.

Instead, Mohamed believed there was a much more sinister and orchestrated plan behind the accident.

Mohamed believed that Princess Diana was pregnant with his son's child at the time of their deaths.

For decades after their deaths, Mohamed expressed doubt that the car crash was an accident and accused the Royal family of being behind Dodi and Diana's deaths.

The grieving father went as far as taking his claims to court. The New York Times reported in 2008 that Mohamed testified to the London court that he believed the late Prince Phillip and Princess Diana's ex-husband then-Prince Charles were behind an elaborate scheme to take out the couple.

Mohamed alleged that the Royal family members planned the accident, which was ultimately "executed" by British and French intelligence members, who he claimed were assisted by the CIA.

Mohamed added that Charles was a willing participant in the fatal scheme due to his desire to wed his current wife Camilla Parker Bowles.

Following years of separation, Diana and Charles had divorced in 1996 and the newly-single princess began dating Dodi in July 1997. Last November, Mohamed claimed that Diana was pregnant with Dodi's child at the time of their deaths.
