Malaysians and the rest of the world are not quite sure about the marital status between Sultan Muhammad V and Rihana Oksana (formerly known as Oksana Voevodina).
First they were married, and then they were not. When news about the Triple Talak divorce surfaced and shocked the nation, Rihana uploaded an old video of the couple. This ended up causing even more confusion.
So what gives?
Despite Rihana’s lawyer Evgeny Tarlo claiming that there hasn’t been any official divorce paperwork on the divorce yet, a family member is setting the record straight. Enter Gorbatenko Oxana (Andrey Gorbatenko) – Rihana’s dad.
Gorbatenko, who is a doctor by profession (or more specifically a traumatologist) previously shared about his first encounter in meeting the former Agong. When asked if Rihana’s marriage to Sultan Muhammad V was already over, he confirmed that the former flames are no longer together.
Previously, Rihana’s friend Tatyana Andreeva also confirmed that the couple had already divorce when the Russian beauty queen flew back to Moscow.
It is believed that Rihana and her newborn son Ismail Leon are living under Sultan Muhammad V’s expenses.
