The Sun, UK
The mysterious playboy Saudi prince who made headlines when he brought his fleet of gold supercars to London has revealed the secrets of his billionaire lifestyle.
In his first ever interview Turki Bin Abdullah claims to be mates with rappers Dr Dre and Drake, has an entourage of six minders and counts his mum as his most treasured possession.
The 23-year-old Saudi has been flaunting his riches during his summer break in London with his collection of gold cars, including a Bentley, Merc, Lamborghini and Rolls-Royce.
He and his entourage are regularly seen in London’s wealthy West End but the billionaire has not spoken out before.
Speaking to the MailOnline Turki described cars as his “passion” and freely admits he bankrolled by his dad, who “buys me what I want”.
His friend, American rapper Dr Dre, is also reportedly is personally designing him a pair of one-of-a-kind solid gold Beats By Dr Dre headphones.
Bin Abdullah revealed that his first ever car was a Porsche 911 – and that he spends hundreds of thousands of pounds customising his fleet in his lucky colour.
It is now said he tips parking attendants £50 and regularly hands out designer goods to pals.
But according the MailOnline Bin Abdullah is not comfortable with being the centre of attention, leaving one hotel as there were “too many people around”.
He also did not speak about personal issues in case of a “security breach”.
The baby faced playboy revealed he has seven gold cars altogether – but has only brought four of them to London, which is one of his favourite cities.
When staying in Paris security are said to have caught someone putting a lighter to the body of one of his cars because they thought it was real gold which would melt off.
Bin Abdullah says he resents the implication that he is one of those who drive their cars loudly and anti-socially through West London.
The Saudi had become notorious for his decadent lifestyle and was said to have racked up several parking fines during his time in London.
But Bin Abdullah denied this, saying: “I’ve been in London for two months – if I was breaking the law like some people say, the UK has a government and police, they would not let me drive if I was breaking the law.
“In two months I have not had a speeding ticket or broken any red lights. If I did do something London has police and they will not let this happen.
“If I did something wrong they will stop me, but they don’t stop me because I don’t do anything illegal.”
The Sun revealed Turki Bin Abdullah’s identity back in March when his supercars first appeared on the capital’s streets.
