Saudi princess tried to leave luxury hotel without paying
A Saudi princess was caught trying to leave the Shangri-La hotel in Paris without settling a six million Euro ($7.4 million) bill for her rooms, police said Saturday, confirming a report in the daily Le Parisien.
Maha Al-Sudani, the former wife of Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Nayef bin Abdel Aziz, tried to walk out at 3:30am Thursday without paying for her suite and those of her 60-strong entourage, prompting staff to call in police, Le Parisien reported.
The Saudi Arabian ambassador was also contacted during the incident, added Le Parisien, which noted that Sudani enjoys diplomatic immunity.
When contacted by AFP, the luxury hotel's director Alain Borgers said that that are "no problems" with its clients and "no unpaid bills" at the moment.
The princess has already had previous run-ins over unpaid bills. In 2009, fashion chain Key Largo went to court to obtain 89,000 euros owed by the princess.
