Former Miss Moscow Oksana Voevodina, reportedly converted to Islam to marry 49-year-old Malaysian King Muhammad V of Kelantan.
The lavish royal wedding ceremony between Former Miss Moscow and the Malaysian King, took place at the Russian capital. The 25-year-old doctor’s daughter who won the title of Miss Moscow in 2015, had worked previously as a model in China and Thailand and is 24 years younger than the king, who is known as Yang di-Pertuan Agong and referred to as ‘Your Majesty’.
The former Miss Moscow converted to Islam to marry the Malaysian King -an elected monarch who has been on the throne since 2016, and took the Muslim name Rihana and a picture of her in a hijab was posted on Twitter. Before the wedding ceremony, Voevodina said:
‘When I was at school I was a kind of bandit.
‘I liked some skaters, bikes, VMX, guys who took part in competitions. I love riding a bike too.’
She said: ‘I think that the man must be the head of the family and of course shall not earn less than a woman.’
Daily Mail reported that the king was dressed in Malaysian national clothes, and the bride wore a white wedding dress for the wedding ceremony which was alcohol free and all food was halal.
While little is known about Voevodina apart from her victory in the Miss Moscow contest three years ago when her vital statistics were given as 33-23-35, however it is believed she graduated from the Faculty of Business at the elite Plekhanov Russian University of Economics.
It is unclear if she has been married before since she has used the surname Voevodina during her glamour career – but is now evidently reverting to her father’s surname Gorbatenko. Reports in Kuala Lumpar say she will be known in future as Rihana Oxana Gorbatenko.
