YOLANDA Hadid is at the source of assault allegations which have wreaked havoc within her family.

Who are Yolanda Hadid ex-husbands?

Yolanda is perhaps best known for being a star of the reality show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Aside from her TV career, she has been married twice but has always kept her love life under wraps.

Mohamed Hadid

Yolanda tied the knot with Mohamed Hadid in 1994, after he split up with his first wife, Mary Butler, in the early 1990's (the mother of his first two daughters, Marielle and Alana).

The pair separated in 2000 after six years of marriage.

A real estate developer and mogul, Mohamed was born on November 6, 1948, in Nazareth, Israel.

Rising from rags to riches, he had a challenging childhood and was taken by his mother to Damascus, in Syria, after his birth.

Meanwhile, his father was a professor of English at the University of Jerusalem, before being expelled.

The mother-son duo moved back and forth between Syria and the newly-founded Israel, even losing track of Mohamed's father's whereabouts for a number of months.

The family was eventually reunited with Mohamed's father getting a new job with Voice of America in Beirut, Lebanon.

Mohamed then moved to Washington at the age of 14 where he began his career in the business world.

Mohamed first ran a nightclub in the Greek island of Rhodes before partnering up with a British car salesman.

Together, they started a company importing classic cars to sell in Washington.

After running a shirt business and a limousine company, Mohamed tried his hand at real estate development in the 1970's, although his passion for cars remained, by working with Arab contractors.

He then constructed office buildings in Washington and set his sights on Aspen. It was there that he developed a Ritz-Carlton, constructed the Silver Circle Ice Rink and redeveloped the old Continental Inn, which made him into a local celebrity.

His real estate career only grew after he moved to Los Angeles in the early 2000's, where he developed multi-million dollar mansions.

Over the years, Mohamed has had a number of celebrity clients in the likes of Michael Jackson and Sylvester Stallone, becoming one of the West Coast's prominent luxury real estate developers.

Aside from his professional success, Mohamed is a somewhat famous name in the sports scene, competing in the Winter Olympics in Albertville, France, in 1992.

He was the only representative for Jordan in speed skiing at the age of 43 in 1991.

A man of many talents, Mohamed has been a pilot for years and has showcased his own art in the Hadid Gallery (which he happens to have opened himself) in Beverly Hills in 2011.

He also appeared on numerous occasions alongside Yolanda in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills which only added to his popularity.

David Foster

Ten years after her split with Mohamed Hadid, Yolanda became engaged to Canadian musician, composer and record producer David Foster on Christmas Eve, 2010.

The pair had first met in 2006.

The couple married on November 11, 2011, during a ceremony in Beverly Hills but eventually announced their separation on December 1, 2015.

Their divorce was finalized in May, 2017.

A music executive, David is known to have chaired Verve Records from 2012 to 2016.

He has won 16 Grammy Awards out of all his 47 nominations.

David's music career began in the early 1970's, when he was a keyboardist for the pop group Skylark. Their song Wildflower became a hit in 1973.

Over the years, he has worked with skew of familiar faces such as Celine Dion, for whom he produced the 1993 hit The Color of My Love and the 1998 Christmas record These Are Special Times.

David also produced the soundtrack for Whitney Houston's film, Bodyguard in 1992.

Prior to his marriage with Yolanda, David was married to singer and writer B.J Cook, the mother of his eldest daughter, Amy Skylark.

He also shares three daughters Sara, (1981), Erin (1982) and Jordan with his second wife Rebecca Dyer.

David was married a third time to Linda Thompson from 1991 to 2005.

He is currently married to actress Katharine McPhee, the mother of his youngest child, born on February 22, 2021.

Who are Yolanda Hadid's children?

Although she shares no children with David, Yolanda became a mother of three during her marriage with Mohamed.

All have gained public recognition throughout the years.

Gigi Hadid

Born on April 23, 1995, Jelena "Gigi" is the eldest of Yolanda's children.

She followed in her mother's footsteps by becoming a model and was even awarded the title of Model of The Year in 2016 by the British Fashion Council, three years after signing her first contract with IMG Models.

Featuring in campaigns for Desigual and Tom Ford, she went on to walk for luxury designers in the likes of Marc Jacobs, Chanel, Michael Kors, Versace, Balmain and Max Mara.

Gigi has also appeared on many magazine covers, from Allure to The Wall Street Journal, starring on the cover of international Vogue a total of 35 times.

After dating Cody Simpson, she has been romantically involved with Zayn Malik since 2015, although they have separated and reconciled numerous times.

Their daughter Khai was born in September, 2020.

On October 29, 2021, it was hinted that the pair had split again after the former One Direction singer was accused of hitting Yolanda during an argument.

Bella Hadid

Bella is also a big name in the fashion industry, rising to prominence in 2014 after her New York Fashion Week debut.

Much like her older sister before her, Bella walked runways for Tom Ford, Michael Kors, Balmain and Chanel.

She has also starred in campaigns for lingerie brand Victoria's Secret, Givenchy and Bulgari's.

Bella has shot editorials for several magazines in the likes of Harper's Bazaar, GQ, Town and Country, Vogue, W Magazine and Elle among others.

Her love life has been the topic of gossip over the years as she has been in an on-and-off relationship with The Weeknd from 2015 to 2019.

Bella is currently sharing the life of art director Marc Kalman, who she began dating in July, 2020.

Anwar Hadid

The last of the Hadid children, born on June 22, 1999, Anwar has also made a name for himself in fashion.

After signing his own contract with IMG Models, he has walked for big power houses in the industry including Hugo Boss and Valentino.

While he is well-known, Anwar remains in the shadow of his older sisters and has hit the headlines in recent years due to his personal life.

He has been dating singer Dua Lipa – whom he is said to have met through his sister Gigi – since 2019.
