Tale of Saudi billionaire marrying her Pakistani driver: true or false?

Social media is abuzz with the ‘news’ of a marriage between a Saudi billionaire woman Sahoo bint Abdullah Al-Mahboob and her Pakistani driver.

The video of the wedding wherein the couple could be seen exchanging rings and hugging each other has garnered thousands of views on social media.

But does it really happened?

Google search shows that Sahoo bint Abdullah Al-Mahboob, who has been described as the owner of hotels in Makkah and Madinah as well as in France is not a real person.

The viral post also claimed that her net worth was $8bn and that she also owned properties in France and other countries but no such person can be found on the Google as well as on the Forbes list of the richest persons in the world.

Her name doesn’t show up anywhere except the news sites and the Youtube videos that were circulating the news of the marriage.

Also, there were no reports of the wedding in the Saudi press about a purported marriage between a driver and a billionaire.

The video has first appeared on twitter on December 24, 2020 by Ahmed Alolyan describing the girl as Yasmine bint Mashal Al-Suderi. He gave the news with a jibe while describing their marriage saying: “Yasmine bint Mashal Al-Suderi wrote a book on Afghanistan.”

Now there is also confusion about the nationality of the groom in the video. The groom in the video can be seen speaking Arabic. However, many migrants working in Arab countries also learn the language.

However, it is confirmed that the guy was a driver of the lady whom she married.

Saleh Almalki on his Facebook post also revealed the fact that the guy is a driver.

However, the posts and comments suggest that the groom is an Afghani instead of Pakistani.

However, there is also little about the identity of Yasmine bint Mashal Al-Suderi, whom some have described as an author but she even seems not that.

So the mysterious news along with the fake description of the bride being a billionaire marrying her driver has left many in awe and day-dreaming as many are pondering to get a driver license to hit a jackpot in their lives like this.
