THE fourth son of the Sultan of Kelantan, Tengku Temenggong Muhammad Fakhry is reported ready to divorce his ‘runaway’ wife, Manohara Odelia Pinot who claimed she had been abused by her husband.
The 17-year-old Indonesian model allegedly made a ‘dramatic escape’ to Indonesian when the Sultans family was in Singapore.
“It is up to Manohara. It is fine if she asks for a divorce as long as she is happy,”the online Tempo Interaktif quoted Tengku Fakhry’s friend, Muhammad Soberi Shafei, as saying via phone last night.
Soberi had apparently said that Tengku Fakhry left it to Manohara whether she wanted to come back to Kelantan or to stay forever in Indonesia.
Manohara was picked up by her mother, Daisy Fajarina, and her step sister, Dewi Sri Asih, in Singapore over the weekend and arrived in Jakarta yesterday morning aboard Garuda airlines.
At a press conference in Jakarta yesterday, Manohara said that she was treated improperly and was sexually harassed.
This has been denied by Tengku Fakhry’s side. “It is a lie,”
Soberi allegedly told Tempo.
Manohara was married to Tengku Fakhry on 28 August 2008 when she was still below 17 years old. By the end of 2008, Manohara had allegedly ‘run away’ from Kelantan to Indonesia.
In February, the Kelantan Sultanate apparently had persuaded Manohara to return to Malaysia. At that time, Manohara’s family was invited to go to Mecca for the Umrah Islamic pilgrimage.
However, it was alleged that after Manohara had boarded the private plane to return to Kelantan, her mother and sister were left behind at the Saudi Arabia airport. (mmail)
