A celebrity dermatologist in Los Angeles is under investigation following a homophobic rant regarding his neighbour, according to reports.

Dr Alex Khadavi, who’s worked with Lance Bass, Scott Disick and David Hasselhoff, is seen in CCTV footage yelling about his neighbours to a concierge, including using homophobic slurs.

It’s not the first incident involving Dr Khadavi, who is reported to have yelled anti-Semitic abuse in 2016.

“I’ll shoot you; I don’t give a f***!”

In footage obtained by TMZ, Dr Khadavi can be seen calling his neighbours “f****** f******!” and threatening “I’ll shoot you; I don’t give a f***!” and “Nobody tells me what to do!”. He repeatedly uses homophobic slurs and threatens to shoot his neighbours.

The incident is reported to have taken place in the lobby of the apartment complex Dr Khadavi lives at in West Hollywood.

TMZ reports that the Medical Board of California is aware of the rant and is conducting a review to see if disciplinary action is needed. This could include a public reprimand or the revoking of Dr Khadavi’s licence.

TMZ also reports that the neighbours in question have filed a restraining order against Dr Khadavi given the threatening elements of the rant.

The US tabloid site reports that Dr Khadavi previously shouted anti-Semitic abuse at Million Dollar Listing’s Matt Altman in 2016, including that he “hated all Jews”. Altman is said to have filed a restraining order against Khadavi, who’s denied the allegations.

A representative for Khadavi at the time said the allegations were ridiculous given Dr Khadavi is Jewish, and that he was not homophobic or anti-Semitic.

Attitude has tried to contact Dr Khadavi for comment.
