Russian ex-wife of Kelantan Sultan ‘ready to reveal story’ behind marriage and divorce

Rihana’s account of what happened will be lapped up by the public hugely befuddled by this turn of events.

She could possibly explain why the Kelantan Palace has never officially recognised the couple’s marriage.

The royal family never accorded Rihana a title, which was the usual practice for other foreign brides.

The Sultan’s sudden abdication of the throne earlier in 2019 was never explained given how his term was not up.

His abdication has been linked to his marriage with Rihana, but the exact details are a mystery.

Rihana previously wrote on Instagram that she intended to defend her family’s honour, as staying silent would mean conceding to “untruths”.
