The ex-King of Malaysia is hitting back at his ex-wife, Russian Model Oksana Veovodina, 27, who says that her baby boy is his son.

In an exclusive article the Daily Mail said the King called Veovodina ‘cruel and vindictive’.

The British paper said the Kelantan Sultan, Muhammad V insists the pictures of the baby produced by the Russian model do not prove he is the father because the boy ‘doesn’t look like him.’

Sultan Muhammad, 50, said the child could be the son of any Asian man.

However, Oksana insists on Instagram posts that the baby is his, calling on the Sultan to undertake a DNA test to prove his lineage.

The Daily Mail describes the Malaysian Sultan who abdicated the Malaysian throne earlier this year for reasons not revealed so far, as a reclusive and wealthy royal.

The paper says it has information the Sultan looked at the images of the child it published and decided any Asian man could have fathered the baby which he has never met.

Besides offering a DNA test to prove the baby is his, Oskana is launching court proceedings in Moscow to declare the Sultan as the father.

The divorce, a quiet affair, turned ugly and acrimonious after the ex-Queen staked a claim on expenses for the baby named Leon.

In October, The Sun published an article saying that the Russian beauty queen is demanding an ‘£8m London mansion and £24k a month’ from the ex-Malaysian King, calling it an ‘astronomical’ divorce payout.

This has started a bitter battle between the two former lovebirds, with the ex-King reportedly asking courtiers: “Who does she think I am… Bill Gates?”

In July, the Sun in the United Kingdom claims the baby of the ex-wife of Sultan Muhammad V of Kelantan is not his, casting doubt on the paternity of the couple’s only child.

The UK paper quotes Singaporean lawyer Koh Tien Hua, who in speaking on behalf of the sultan, says, “There is no objective evidence as yet as to the biological father of the child.”

The Malaysian ex-King reportedly split from his Russian model wife just weeks after their son was born. He gave up his throne in January months after marrying former Miss Moscow Rihana Oksana Gorbatenko.

He divorced her earlier this month and the news made the headlines in Malaysia though the ex-wife insisted they did not divorce. -/TISG
