Mohamed Hadid has been charged with three misdemeanors due to his ongoing development project in Beverly Hills, but could he be facing jail time?
According to a new report, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is facing up to one year behind bars, and his ex-wife, Yolanda Foster, is reportedly concerned.
Foster was “absolutely stunned that Mohamed had been charged,” a source told Radar Online on Friday. “Yolanda reached out to Mohamed after the news broke, and he assured her that everything would be okay. Mohamed’s attorney is confident the matter will be resolved without any jail time included in a potential plea deal.”
Although Hadid has officially been charged, his ex-wife believes his high-profile status is what led to the conviction.
“Mohamed employs many people and Yolanda thinks he is being targeted because of their celebrity status,” the source continued. “He has never violated any laws and just wants this resolved.”
In court documents obtained by Radar Online, it was revealed that Hadid has been charged with "illegal use of land, building without a permit and failure to obey orders from the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety."
Hadid's 30,000 square feet mansion, which is known by the name of Starship Enterprise, has allegedly outraged locals due to its size, and in Sept. 2015, construction was halted after a man living in the home below claimed it had destabilized the hillside.
“Yolanda will support Mohamed and truly wants to help him any was possible. He has been so great to her over the years,” the source added.
