Appointed as the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia on June 21, Mohammed Bin Salman of the House Saud assumed another post in the Saudi Monarchy along with being the First Deputy Prime Minister of Saudi Arabia and also the youngest Minister of Defense in the world. He is also the chief of the House of Saud Royal Court and has often been described as the power behind the throne of his father.
He has had an ambitious career and is a young celebrity in himself. However, he received much hatred from everyone around the world when he made a snide comment on wanting to offer Kanye West money to allow the Prince to spend one night with Kim Kardashian.
In a press conference, the Prince told the reporters that he had no interest in Kanye’s music and clothing when Kanye West posted on Twitter about the millions of dollars that he owed in debt. Kanye had posted that he was willing to accept help from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Google’s Larry Page to which both the business-men made no comment.
The Saudi Prince bin Salman, however, came to the rapper’s rescue offering him $10 million or more, not for his music or clothing but to spend one night with Kim Kardashian, who he called an absolute treasure.
The last comment caused an uproar against the Saudi Prince and several International celebrities and women organizations scorned the Prince with hatred. They called it ‘an insult to women all across the world’. Kim and Kanye however, remained quiet on the matter and refrained from stooping to the level of retaliation.
A similar incident took place in 2014 when another Saudi Prince offered Kim Kardashian $1 million in exchange for her presence at a party. Although there were no official statements made about this incident, there are rumors that Kim Kardashian had taken upon the Prince’s offer and attended the party in Saudi Arabia.
