Fleeing for her life? Wife of billionaire Dubai ruler files for custody of kids in UK mystery case


Share post:

LONDON – The estranged wife of Dubai’s billionaire ruler has filed for custody of their children after fleeing to the UK seeking protection — and by all accounts, the circumstances which led her there are steeped in mystery and intrigue.

Princess Haya Bint al-Hussein (45), is one of Sheikh bin Rashid al-Maktoum’s (70) six wives and mother to two of his children. She was seen Tuesday morning arriving at London’s High Court, where she also applied for a ‘forced marriage protection order’ relating to one of her two children, reports said.

The Sheikh, who is also vice president and prime minister of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), is believed to have a fortune of around £4.5 billion and the legal battles set to ensue could potentially become one of the most high-value divorces cases ever witnessed in Britain.
