community service

Gigi and Bella Hadid's dad, Mohamed Hadid, has been sentenced to community service after he built a mansion that was too big.

Yes, really.

Mohamed must also pay fines and create a plan to stop eroding the hillside in Bel-Air, after he was told that he could not build a "mammoth mansion" there.

Three years ago, the city of Los Angeles demanded that construction stopped, however, the real estate developer continued building the 30,000-square-foot home on a 1.2 acre plot.

Los Angeles Times reports that "construction continued illegally on the massive house, defying the city order."

The mansion was allegedly "bigger and taller than city rules allowed," and had "bedrooms, decks, and a [70-seat] IMAX theatre that the city said were never approved, according to court documents filed by prosecutors."

Mohamed appeared in court in Los Angeles yesterday and the judge sentenced him to three years probation and 200 hours of community service.

He was also ordered to pay more than $3,000 in fines and repay the city $14,000 to cover building department costs.

In addition, Mr Hadid must also create a plan to stabilise the hillside on which the house sits, because neighbours say it has "been dangerously destabilized."

One of Mohamed's neighbours said that he "should be in jail [because] he violated the city’s ordinances over and over again."

Despite protest however, the aptly named 'Starship Enterprise' will remain in place.



We had high hopes for Lindsay Lohan this time around. We thought she was going to get back on track, but after a recent interview, we’re not so sure.

According to Lindsay, when she was doing her community service, she was asked to handle Whitney Houston’s body bag in the morgue, because no one else could do it:

“A lot of other people were meant to do it, and they were like: ‘No, they can’t handle it. Lohan can.’

“I know it sounds really dark and strange, but I thought it would be a lot worse. I kind of regulated a lot of it.

“I’d tell people: "You didn’t fold that sheet properly" because I’m OCD with folding.

“I was like, ‘OK, wait. Something needs to change, and I think that’s me.’”

Even though Lindsay claims the experience wasn’t that bad, she still describes it as “F***ed and inappropriate” – and we’ve got to agree! If it’s true, that is.

An official from the Coroner’s office in LA has spoken out about Lindsay’s claims, saying that they aren’t true:

“Whitney was never in a body bag and no one in the probation program came in contact with Whitney's body.

“Whitney was wrapped in plastic with a sheet cover the entire time she was at the morgue. In fact, she was taken out in plastic – not a body bag – from the hotel where she died.”

We have a feeling Lindsay has been telling lies, which doesn’t bode well for someone who’s trying to win back people’s trust as she claims to be doing:

“I lost a lot of… I wouldn’t say… I don’t think 'respect’ is the word… trust from a lot of people. And I don’t mind gaining that back.”

Take it from us Lindsay, this is NOT the way to do it.
