LONDON: London luxury department store Harrods said Saturday that it was taking down a statue of the late Princess Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Al Fayed
and returning it to former owner Mohamed Al Fayed
The statue was erected behind the Hammersmith Stand in April 2011 at the request of former owner and chairman Mohammed Al Fayed
, who was close to Jackson.
The club announced that the bizarre simulacrum of the Thriller star is to be dug up and returned to Mohamed Al Fayed
, who put it up when he owned the Premier League club.
Sustained reports this week suggested Al Fayed
would now sell the club and the Cottagers last night confirmed a deal has been struck with Khan, billionaire owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars.
His battle with Mohamed Al Fayed
during an often public and vitriolic eight-year dispute over the ownership of Harrods and beyond, dominated the headlines.
Former Harrods boss Mohammed al Fayed
, the father of Dodi, who also died in the August 2007 Paris car crash, has long accused the pair of deliberately withholding evidence from the French investigation into their deaths.
