Mohamed Hadid has appeared for the first time since sexual assault claims surfaced against him online.
The 69-year-old real estate mogul accused model Miranda Vee, 23, of being an 'extortionist' as he walked through an underground parking lot.
Dressed all in black, Hadid appeared in a somber mood at his lunch.
As he left Wally's restaurant he said: "The sad part is ... is these allegations are totally false and the fact as well that they will be judged in court."
Hadid - who has been engaged to Shiva Safai since 2014 - has continued to deny that he date raped Vee.
Claims that she made in a lengthy Instagram post shared on Thursday to her nearly 20,000 followers.
He added: "This woman is an extortionist, and I will make sure that ...'
"I have five daughters ... four daughters,' he stammered while approaching his vehicle. 'So I am for women.'
Hadid was enjoying lunch with a bevy of male friends including former NBA basketball player Scottie Pippen.
The property mogul said that he is in contact with his attorney with the intention of filing a defamation suit against Vee.
In her Instagram post, Vee said that she met fashion designer Paul Marciano at his Guess headquarters where 'he sexually harassed me'.
Marciano - like Hadid - has strongly denied all allegations of sexual impropriety.
Vee accused Marciano of 'passing me on to his friend Mohammed Hadid who was going to meet me for 'coffee'.
"I thought it was a professional meeting but It was just me, him & champagne where he date raped me in an apartment," she wrote in the post.
She said that when she tried to speak out about the incident last year 'they found out & made me sign a non-disclosure agreement'.
