The ruler of the Princess of Dubai is believed to have had a two-year relationship with her married British bodyguard – and paid at least $ 6.4 million to try to keep him quiet, the report said.
Princess Haya’s fraud was exposed in a decision to establish custody of children at the Supreme Court in London, which states that “an adulterous relationship has begun with one of her male bodyguards,” according to the Daily Mail.
The court ruling did not initially identify the bodyguard, but the Daily Mail reports that the 46-year-old princess claims to have seduced Russell Flowers, 37, with a host of luxury gifts, including a $ 16,000 watch and a $ 66,000 retro rifle. .
She also allegedly paid him $ 1
Haya – the daughter of the late King of Jordan – also paid the same amount to buy silence from three of the bodyguards of the Royal family of Flowers, who knew about the alleged affair, which began in 2016, reports Mail, without citing sources.
“It was a secret to the team that he was connected to it,” sources at the 3,000-acre sheikh’s mansion, Dalham Hall in Suffolk, told the British office.
However, the scam was soon exposed, destroying the bodyguard’s four-year marriage – and forcing the terrified princess to flee Dubai with her two children after clashing with her husband in 2018, the report said.
During attempts by the sheikh to obtain custody of their 11-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son, a UK court ruled that he had carried out an “intimidation campaign” against Haya and mocked her over the affair, the Mail reported.
It includes divorcing her without telling her, leaving weapons in the bedroom and attempting to abduct her by helicopter, the report said.
“Haya should be ashamed of the way she went after a married man. There is no excuse, “a family friend of Flowers and his ex-wife told the Daily Mail.
“It was because of her wealth and power that she was able to do that. Many lives were lost because of this affair, “said the friend.
“Russell should be ashamed of the way he treated his wife. His behavior was disgusting, “the friend said of the ex-soldier.
“The divorce broke her up and took her a long time to overcome the betrayal,” the boyfriend added to his ex-unidentified wife.
Flowers and his ex-wife refused to speak to the Mail. The other three guards, who are said to have been paid $ 1.6 million, have been barred from discussing the affair or work with the Dubai royal family, the agency said without identifying them.
The princess married Sheikh Mohammed in 2004, becoming his sixth and “younger wife” until their divorce last year. She now lives in a $ 113 million home in one of London’s most exclusive neighborhoods, Kensington, with their two children, the Mail reported.
During the drama, the sheikh published an online poem accusing an unidentified woman of “betrayal and betrayal.”
The messages left for representatives of the sheikh, as well as his former princess, were not returned immediately on Friday.
