King Fahd's dirty laundry about to be aired
One of King Fahd's many ex-wives is suing for more alimony. Normally cases such as this are hush hush. However, Lord Justice Thorpe, of the Royal Courts of Justice Family Division ruled that this hearing will be made public.
So Janan Harb will have her day in court and the House of Saud will have its dirty laundry aired. In March 2001, Mrs. Harb had been awarded a substantial and had signed an agreement to not disclose any details. However, she seems to need more. Some feel she is doing it for revenge. She is a Palestinian and has stated that she had been shunned by the royal household.
No one is sure how many wives or ex-wives King Fahd has. Men in Saudi Arabia are allowed to marry up to four. There has been speculation that King Fahd has had a total of 145 wives during his lifetime.

I mean this is only one man from the Saudi royal house who had 145 wives, who knows how many ex-wives of other royal house members lurk out there.
