    Mohamed Hadid, 71, and fiancée Shiva Safai, 39, split because 'she wanted to started a family but the father-of-five didn't want more children'

    By SEAN O'GRADY FOR MAILONLINE
    PUBLISHED: 10:58, 9 December 2019 | UPDATED: 11:22, 9 December 2019

    Mohamed Hadid, 71, and his ex fiancée Shiva Safai, 39, split because they could not agree on starting a family together.
    According to TMZ, Mohamed and Shiva decided to call it quits because Shiva wanted to have children while the real estate developer and father-of-five did not want to expand his brood.
    The couple are said to have separated a year ago but Shiva only confirmed the split last week when she went Instagram official with her new boyfriend, Niels Houweling.

    Split: Mohamed Hadid and his ex fiancée Shiva Safai ended their relationship because they could not agree on starting a family together (pictured in November 2017)

    Mohamed is father to model daughters Gigi, 24, and Bella, 23, as well as Alana, 34, Marielle, 39, and Anwar, 20.
    A source also told the publication that another reason for the breakup was Shiva's reaction to model Justyna Monde, 25, who claimed to have had a relationship with Mohamed.




    The admission reportedly made Shiva reevaluate the couple's relationship and prompted them to have a discussion about their future.
    It is unclear who broke up with who however the pair are both said to have realised they both wanted different things.

    After the split, Shiva returned her engagement ring, a Hadid family heirloom, to Mohamed who then gave it to his eldest sister.
    Shiva went public with her new love, music producer Niels, when she shared a loved-up snap of the couple where she planted a kiss on his cheek.
    Alongside the snap, Shiva captioned the photo with a simple love heart while she was inundated with messages from friends saying they were 'so happy' for her.
    Niels announced the couple's romance on his Instagram back in June when he posted a snap of himself at the Waldorf Astoria in Beverly Hills with Shiva's hand around his neck.

    Although her face could not be seen in the snap, he tagged her in the photo and has since shared other photos of the pair together on his account.
    Mohamed was previously married to Yolanda Hadid from 1994 to 2000 and had Gigi, Bella and Anwar with her.
    He shares his two older children with his first wife, Mary Butler, who he has been divorced from since 1992.

    Did she have miracle eye surgery that suddenly revealed she'd been dating an overcooked potato with a carefully-coiffed mop on its head? I really doubt that his refusal to share his spud genes with her is what killed their love.

    At least her new boyfriend is hot.

    I don't know what his first wife looked like, but all the kids look like siblings, so they must get quite a bit from him. That or Yolanda and the other wife were cut from similar cloth.

    California's Supreme Court has torpedoed maverick real estate tycoon Mohamed Hadid's last ditch bid to save his controversial Los Angeles mega mansion from the wrecking ball, DailyMail.com can reveal.
    The state's highest court denied Hadid's motion to review his case and overturn the decision of a lower court - later backed up by the Court of Appeal - that his hilltop property in upscale Bel-Air should be torn down because it's a 'clear and present danger' to the homes of neighbors suing him.
    The Supreme Court's decision not to hear the case is a major victory for the neighbors who are hoping that demolition of the half-built 'monstrosity' will begin by next month.

    Lawyers for the 71-year-old father of supermodels Bella and Gigi Hadid had argued that the giant, illegally-built structure is worth $50 million and that the wealthy developer has been denied the 'process of law.'
    LA Superior Court Judge Craig Karlan's injunction ordering the demolition of the huge building 'was done without trial… without proof of an emergency, and without proof of the existence of a nuisance,' his lawyers blasted in documents obtained by DailyMail.com

    Lawyers for the 71-year-old father of supermodels Bella and Gigi Hadid had argued that the giant, illegally-built structure is worth $50 million and that the wealthy developer has been denied the 'process of law.

    'To prevent catastrophic and irreparable harm, the Supreme Court should grant Review (meaning that the case should be sent back to the lower court to be reconsidered)'.
    Hadid's petition asked the Supreme Court judges to halt the demolition adding: 'The status quo is that (Hadid) developed and almost completed a building now worth more than $50 million, a building which still stands. (Hadid) has been trying to bring it into compliance with the building codes of the City of Los Angeles and has done so in large part.
    'The petitioners (neighbors suing Hadid), without a jury trial or even a court trial, have sought to radically change the status quo and to have the building destroyed.
    'A $50 million building should not be destroyed without process of law.'
    The neighbors fiercely fought Hadid's motion, however, their attorneys filing a response to the Supreme Court saying: 'Hadid and his company, 901 Strada LLC, seek to avoid demolishing a massive hillside structure that they concede is un-permitted and constructed on a foundation that fails to comply with the building code, that they agree must be demolished eventually and which the trial court found constituted a danger to the public…
    'The trial court's finding was consistent with the fears of an architect who worked on the building that he was 'worried that building will slide down the hill and kill someone'.
    'All parties agree that the house will have to be demolished at some point because it is built on a faulty foundation and lives are at risk if demolition is delayed.'

    Neighbors have been fighting for years for the demolition of the property because of all the alleged unapproved construction. The development of the home has also been an eyesore to nearby residents and now a danger due to heavy Los Angeles rain

    Hadid has tried several court strategies to stop or delay the demolition. First he filed chapter 11 bankruptcy, claiming that he 'couldn't afford' the $5 million cost of the demo. That was dismissed. Then he filed an appeal against Judge Karlan's order to tear down the mansion. That too was denied

    The neighbors' lawyers strongly disputed Hadid's claim that his massive mansion - dubbed the Starship Enterprise because it's so big - is worth $50 million.
    Instead, they said in court documents, the property is only worth $8 million - the value of the land, less the cost to completely demolish the structure.

    Then he filed an appeal against Judge Karlan's order to tear down the mansion. That too was denied.
    Now, with his 11th-hour plea to the Supreme Court falling flat, he has no more legal moves left to stop his beloved mansion from being reduced to rubble and dust.
    Razing the gargantuan house to the ground is on track to happen by early to mid July, after Douglas Wilson - the receiver Judge Karlan appointed to oversee the demolition - submits his final demo plan, and Judge Karlan approves it.
    Hadid's problems don't end there.
    DailyMail.com reported exclusively in April that he owes almost $1.2 million in back taxes on the condemned property.
    He's also facing a jury trial next month which could cost him millions if he loses

    Hadid blames his disgruntled 'nasty' neighbor Joe Horacek (pictured in front of his home with Hadid's home in the background) Horecek is the man who has spear-headed the campaign against him

    The neighbors - John Bedrosian and his wife Judith and Joe Horacek and his wife Bibi - who lobbied to get rid of the massive building that looms over their homes, are suing him for cash damages for the eight-year 'nightmare' they claim he's put them through..
    The neighbors have good reason to be optimistic about the outcome of the trial, since Judge Karlan has declared that they are likely to win their case against the purported multi-millionaire.
    Hadid's notorious mansion - which he at one time hoped to sell for $100 million - was originally permitted for 15,000 square feet but the house grew to around 30,000 square feet with much of that additional construction illegal.
    He ignored orders from Los Angeles City to stop building and in December 2015, in an almost-unprecedented move, the city decided to prosecute him criminally.
    He pleaded no contest to three criminal charges involving illegal construction and in July 2017 he was told he would serve a 180-day jail sentence if he doesn't reduce the size of the house and bring it into compliance with city building codes - or demolish it - within the three years of probation the judge also imposed.
    In addition, he was fined $3,000, ordered to pay $14,191 in fees to LA city, and serve 200 hours of community service.
