The ruler of Dubai’s princess wife allegedly had a two-year affair with her married British bodyguard — and paid at least $6.4 million to try to keep it quiet, according to a report.
Princess Haya’s cheating was exposed in a child-custody fact-finding ruling in London’s High Court that said she “embarked upon an adulterous relationship with one of her male bodyguards,” according to the Daily Mail.
The court ruling didn’t initially identify the bodyguard, but the Daily Mail reports that the 46-year-old princess allegedly seduced Russell Flowers, 37, with a slew of luxury gifts including a $16,000 watch and a $66,000 vintage shotgun.
She also allegedly paid him $1.6 million to keep it from her then-husband, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates Sheikh Mohammed Al Maktoum, sources told the outlet.
Haya — the daughter of the late King of Jordan — also paid the same amount to buy silence from three of Flowers’ fellow Dubai
