Mohamed Hadid was found guilty of three criminal counts from the illegal construction of his Bel Air mega-mansion, but the millionaire developer is lashing out about the ugly situation. He began construction on a 30,000sq. ft. gigantic home in the ritzy Los Angeles neighborhood, but was soon slapped with multiple building code violations for the monstrosity nicknamed the Star Ship Enterprise, for its sheer size. A judge failed to give Hadid jail time for the offenses but the fate of the abode remained uncertain. So he took to his Instagram page to argue that the house was “beautiful,” and had “quality development.” Click through RadarOnline.com’s gallery for more.
Gigi and Bella Hadid’s father pleaded “no contest” to the criminal charges and was ordered to pay $3,000 in fines, plus another $14,000 to the City of Los Angeles as well hire an engineer to stabilize the hillside home.
Hadid vowed to push ahead with development on the Strada Vecchia property. “Demolish this house? Never,” he told Town & Country magazine. “This house will last forever. Bel Air will fall before this will.”
“It will be one of the most beautiful homes that LA has ever seen ... Quality development...and design,” Hadid bragged on his Instagram page about the house that a City Councilmember wanted demolished.
Hadid’s outraged neighbor, attorney Joseph Horacek, previously told Radar that Hadid should not have been allowed to continue construction on the home. “There is no way to bring it into compliance other than demolish it.”
Sending a message to the judge? “Look up to the sky. Up there. The only Judge that counts, is GOD the mighty,” Hadid wrote as a caption for a photograph of himself.
Taunting like a teenager, instead of a 68-year-old man, Hadid wrote “You know who you are. Haters ...,” in the caption of a picture that read “Rumors are carried by haters, spread by fools, and accepted by idiots.”
Hadid flaunted the architecture of the extravagant home, writing: “One of the most romantic walkway that I have ever designed and developed..#hadiddesign #beverlyhills.” Do you think Mohamed Hadid’s home is beautiful or outrageous?
