Vanity Fair may have just killed a story about Mohamed Hadid, but why?

In between enjoying meals at Sur, Yolanda Foster's ex-husband Mohamed Hadid has been developing a home so big, so ugly and with such potentially dangerous construction that all the neighbors hate him for it. The Daily Mail reports that we almost learned more about the situation in a profile in Vanity Fair, but editor Graydon Carter mysteriously pulled the story.

The Daily Mail tells the "saga" of how Hadid is now facing criminal charges for the development of the 30,000-square-foot mansion. Joe Horacek, a neighbor and entertainment lawyer, is quoted throughout as the leader of the opposition to the construction. "He created a monster both for himself and his neighbors," said Horacek. "But unfortunately, it is us neighbors who are being punished more than him." The house has reportedly caused small landslides in the neighborhood, and Hadid is now removing parts of it, perhaps to satisfy local demand. Hadid is due in court next Friday on three misdemeanor counts relating to construction.

As for Vanity Fair, which has yet to comment on the accusations, The Daily Mail is comparing it to Carter's decision to kill a story on Gwyneth Paltrow after she sent a mass email asking friends to pull the magazine's access. For Vanity Fair, it may be more valuable to have access to Gigi and Bella Hadid, Mohamed's daughters, than one journalistic story on their father.
