In July 2017, the Los Angeles Times reported that Hadid was sentenced to 200 hours of community service, fined $3,000 and ordered to pay the city more than $14,000 to cover building department costs.

Hadid pleaded no contest in May 2017 to misdemeanour charges for building portions of a 30,000-square-foot mansion in Bel Air without obtaining proper permits.

Authorities said bedrooms, decks, supporting walls and even an IMAX theatre were built illegally. The city halted construction four years ago and the home remains unfinished.

Hadid’s lawyer, Robert Shapiro, said at the time that Hadid is interested in bringing the home into compliance and completing it.
