Rihana Oksana Petra’s recent divorce with Kelantanese King, Sultan Muhammad V is as shocking and sudden as her wedding news.

Though both parties have yet to release any official statement, a divorce paper registered on 1st July, has surfaced, showing that the Russian beauty queen has been divorced by triple talak.


However, Rihana’s lawyer Evgeny Tarlo, 61 defended the 26-year-old’s marital status, claiming that she is still married to the Malaysian ruler as she hasn’t receive any official paperwork on the divorce.

“Oksana married for love and is still married,” Tarlo said as quoted by the Daily Mail. “Divorce is just talk, from a yellowish (scandalous) media. We have no official papers. We do not know anything.”

Nevertheless, Tarlo did admit that Rihana’s marriage to the king was on the rocks due to political intrigues among the elite in Malaysia.


One of Rihana’s friends, Tatyana Andreeva told Russian newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda that Rihana was already divorced when she arrived in Russia for a beauty contest on 26th June.

This would make sense since the divorce certificate stated that the procedure took place on 22nd June in Singapore.

“She came to this contest as an already divorced woman. Now she is in Moscow,” Andreeva said as quoted.

It is said that Rihana currently staying with her son and mother in a country house provided by Sultan Muhammad V near Moscow.

“He helps her, yes. He sends money, she lives at his expense. I cannot name the amount, but it is enough to live on. In Moscow, she and her mother rent an apartment and a country house. They have security,” said Tarlo.

“So far the question is not about the money, but if it arises, I will defend Oksana’s interests and the interests of her young child.”

Sebulan yang lalu, saya menjadi ibu kepada cahaya mata sulong saya Ismail Leon. Cara hidup saya berubah buat selamanya pada saat itu. Menjadi ibu adalah tanggungjawab yang besar. Berat badan si Leo menjatuh amat teruk dalam minggu-minggu pertamanya. Dan dia juga mengidap penyakit kuning. Saya fikir ia dilahirkan dengan kulit kuning. Alhamdullilah, berat badannya berjaya bertambah dan dia pulih dari penyakitnya selepas sebulan. Sekarang dia mampu minum sebotol susu setiap 2.5 – 3 jam, dan dia tidur dengan nyenyak, terutamanya apabila cuaca diluar tenang dan ia berada dalam pelukan ibunya. Saya pernah ragu-ragu andainya tidur saya pun akan terganggu, tetapi kini sudah biasa dengan tabiat dan jadual waktunya, maka saya juga dapat berehat dan tidur … kadang-kadang. Segala keraguan saya terhadap menjadi ibu orang memang tiada berbatas. Masa inilah detik yang paling bermakna di dalam kehidupan seorang wanita. Yang paling penting, saya tidak takut lagi untuk menjadi seorang ibu. Jika saya dikurniakan lebih cahaya mata oleh Allah, saya akan menerima kurniaan itu dengan segala kesyukuran. Sehingga waktu itu, putera kecil kami akan terus membesar dan memberi kasih sayang kepada ibubapanya serta kepada semua insan yang menyayangi dan mendukunginya. One month ago I became mother of beautiful little baby Ismail Leon My life has changed forever. Child is a great happiness and at the same time it is a huge responsibility. Leo lost too much weight during the first few weeks of his life. He also had jaundice. At the beginning I didn’t pay attention on it because i thought he was born with yellow skin. Alhamdullilah, by one month old he recovered from it and gained the necessary weight in plus 1 kg. Now Leo eats every 2.5 – 3 hours, he sleeps good, especially when it is fresh air outside and he enjoys cuddling very much. Actually he is wonderful and very calm child. I was afraid that It would be impossible for me to sleep at nights, but I had already get used to his timing and even manage to sleep… sometimes My fears about motherhood were unnecessary, this is the most beautiful period in the life of any woman, and what is most important, (continue below) 👇🏼

“I do not deal with divorce, because there is no divorce as of today. There are no documents. I am engaged in defending the interests of Oksana, defending her from attacks of the media,” he added.

“Oksana married for love and is still married, she did not file any documents for divorce. She gave birth to a child in Moscow, in a maternity hospital of the (Russian) presidential administration. Understand, she is a nursing mother.”

“In this position she should be protected from stress. She will call (the ex-king) and they will solve this issue between them in a family circle.”


Despite Rihana’s postings on Instagram and her lawyer’s statement, the Palace of Kelantan has vehemently denied most of her claims. The public are advised to not believe everything they read on social media and take it with a grain of salt.
