While many Malaysians are shocked by the news, most of them are happy for their ruler who has finally found a beautiful soulmate after his divorce with Tengku Zubaidah Tengku Norudin in 2008.
But the question that’s been bogging a lot of people’s mind is how the former beauty queen and the Muslim king met each other.
According to beauty contest director Tatiana Andreeva, the pair met “in Europe” when Ms Voevodina was promoting elite watches.
“Oksana is a model. She worked a lot abroad, so an encounter of such a level is quite predictable. She met Muhammad 18 months ago in Europe. Oksana worked at a watch display and she was standing by a poster and advertising the goods,” said Tatiana as reported by Daily Mail UK.
Tatiana also said, “Oksana’s parents were present at the wedding, they support their daughter in everything.”
It is also revealed that the couple has visited a fertility clinic in German within days of wedding as they are preparing to have children.
According to sources, Sultan Muhammad V is “very much concerned” about starting a family, as his 1st marriage which ended in divorce produced no children.
Oksana Voevodina who has now took on the Muslim name Rihana Oxana Gorbatenko recently held a wedding ceremony on 22nd November 2018 in a concert hall in the upscale Moscow suburb of Barvikha, reported Islam News.
