Who is Dr Alex Khadavi? Scott Disick's dermatologist hurls homophobic slur at neighbor on video
Alex Khadavi, cosmetic dermatologist to stars in LA allegedly went on a homophobic rant about his neighbors and threatened to 'blow their heads off'
Celebrity dermatologist Dr Alex Khadavi has landed himself in trouble after surveillance camera footage of his homophobic tirade surfaced online. The Los Angeles-based expert physician threatened to kill his gay neighbor while launching into a foul-mouthed tirade full with homophobic slurs at him. In a video clip released by TMZ, a man identified as Alex can be heard saying, "I'll f**k you up, f**king f****t!" during a dispute with his neighbor. "I'll shoot you in the f**king face, f**king f****t!" — the doctor says, before adding, "I'll blow your f**king head off!". The foul-mouthed rant continues for more than a minute.
Alex, who boasts of celebrity clients like Scott Disick, David Hasselhoff, Lance Bass, and Ana Cheri, had faced controversy in the past as well. Four years ago, he had allegedly threatened to kill Matt Altman from 'Million Dollar Listing' and even hurled anti-Semitic abuses at him. The homophobic episode took place on July 7, 2021, at the lobby of a luxury West Hollywood condo complex. The neighbor in question has now filed a restraining order against the 48-year-old dermatologist.

In the footage, Alex can be seen approaching the concierge at the condominium complex while continuing his homophobic and abusive rant against the neighbor. The neighbor, who admitted fearing "for his life" has now filed a restraining order against Alex. In legal documents, seen by TMZ, the concierge allegedly claimed that Alex 'showed him a handgun he was carrying [while leaving the condo complex]' around two months ago.
The controversial celebrity dermatologist has not yet commented on this issue.

In 2016, a restraining order was issued against Alex by realtor Matt Altman, for making "anti-Semitic death threats". The incident reportedly took place when Alex approached Altman at a real-estate event. Altman had then asked him to leave since the event was private. Alex lost his cool at that time and allegedly said that he hated all Jews and also issued death threats to Altman.
