Mohamed Hadid, Terrence Howard on Taxpayer Delinquent List

Mohamed Hadid, whose Bel-Air mansion has just been razed, is on the State of California Franchise Tax Board’s list of the last 500 delinquent taxpayers.

Hadid is named on the semi-annual list because he owes $243,143.66 to the government.

The real estate developer – also known as the father of world-famous models Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid – has recently raised eyebrows about his financial status.

Mohamed’s multimillion-dollar Bel-Air home was destroyed last week after years of legal trouble. The property, dubbed the “Starship Enterprise,” perched precariously on top of a hill and did not meet certain city approvals.

In 2019, a judge declared the house “a clear and present danger” to neighbors” and ordered it to be demolished. However, Mohamed, 73, claimed he did not have the $5 million in funds to raze the property.

The house, which he had originally hoped to sell for $100 million, went up for auction earlier this year for $5 million.

Vidak For Congress reported in April that Mohamed appears to have lost tens of millions of dollars in construction loans and owes millions more to a large number of builders.

Also on this year’s list of taxpayer arrears is Terrence Howard, who has been an ongoing favorite of the IRS. The ‘Empire’ actor, 53, owes $255,715.72.

In 2019, Howard was reportedly under investigation for criminal tax evasion. In addition, he has been hit three times with tax retentions in recent years.

And finally, new to this year’s list is Jim Buss, part owner of the Los Angeles Lakers, who owes $232,022.47.
