On the 21st of June, King Salman of Saudi Arabia made a grand announcement by declaring his 31-year-old son Muhammad Bin Salman Al Saud as the new Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia.
Muhammad Bin Salman may have now transformed into a young, responsible and an ambitious leader but the Prince had earlier received immense resentment for making a comment regarding the famous TV actress and model, Kim Kardashian.
The comment was made after Kim’s husband Kanye West announced on Twitter that he was under $53 Million of personal debt.
American rapper, Kanye West opened up about his Millions of dollars of debt on social media. He also announced that he would willingly accept any sort of help from Mark Zuckerberg (CEO of Facebook) and Larry Page (Chief Executive Officer of Alphabet/Google).
However, Saudi Prince’s son, Muhammad Bin Salman seemed interested in helping out the rapper and his model wife. In a press conference, the Prince allegedly stated that he has absolutely no interest in Kanye West’s music or clothing line but his wife (Kim Kardashian) is a treasure. He also reportedly stated that he would gladly pay $10 Million or even more to spend one night with her.
After he made the statement, the Prince received a lot of hatred from a number of International celebrities and even women organizations, regarding his offer as, ”an insult to women across the world”. The Prince got widely slammed by International Media.
However, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West chose to remain silent regarding the topic.
In 2014, a similar incident had occurred when Kim Kardashian was offered $1 Million by another Saudi Prince for attending a party.
However, it was rumoured that Kim Kardashian did accept the $1 Million offer to party in Saudi Arabia with the Prince, although no official announcements or photos came out that confirmed the rumour.
