Mohamed Hadid’s Bankruptcy Claim Denied, Mansion to be Demolished

Mohamed Hadid Bankruptcy Home Demolish

Mohamed Hadid will still have to tear down the "Starship Enterprise," a judge ruled Tuesday in a years-long luxury real estate saga that seems truly otherworldly.

The ex-husband of The Real Housewives of Beverly HillsYolanda Hadid (with whom he has supermodel children Bella, Gigi and Anwar Hadid) had a state-issued court order to demolish the 30,000-square-foot home that his company started to build into a hillside in Bel Air and had been given a Star Trek nickname due to its aeronautical appearance. Mohamed reportedly envisioned that the Starship could eventually be sold for $100 million, but the project was never finished and the site became a growing safety concern and eyesore to surrounding neighbors.

Mohamed has significantly downsized his personal life and he filed for bankruptcy last month, arguing that his company didn't have the money — a figure that's been variously reported to be at least $500,000, if not well into the millions — to pay for the demolition. But the bankruptcy claim was dismissed on Tuesday.

“The sole purpose of the bankruptcy filing was to delay [the] order from taking effect and that is not a legitimate purpose,” read the dismissal motion written by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Sheri Bluebond, according to New York Daily News. The motion additionally bars Mohamed from filing for bankruptcy again for the next six months.

Looks like the Starship will have to come down somehow; a motion filed last month by the city hopes that it will be gone by April Fools' Day 2020.
