Saudi Prince Dodges Felony Charges, But Faces Lurid Lawsuit

Saudi Prince Dodges Felony Charges, But Faces Lurid Lawsuit

SAUDI PRINCE

The Saudi prince at the center of a case that made national headlines in the U.S. is now facing even more accusations, this time about sex with men.

Saudi Prince Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud avoided felony charges after a bloodied woman scaled the wall of his Beverly Hills mansion and accused him of sexually assualting her earlier this year. But now three female employees have filed a lawsuit that outlines more of what they claim happened at the compound, including new accusations that the prince had sex with men.

Gay sex is illegal in Saudi Arabia and is punishable by life in prison, castration, or even death. Gay men are regularly arrested and severely punished in the conservative Muslim nation.

The case made national headlines when Al-Saud, the son of the late King Abdullah, was arrested in September after police rescued a bleeding woman screaming for help as she tried to climb an 8-foot wall to escape the prince's rented $37-million mansion. The woman claimed he had tried to force her to have oral sex, according to the Los Angeles Times. Prosecutors later said they didn't have enough evidence to charge Al-Saud, and he was released on $300,000 bail.

Now three former female employees have filed a lawsuit against the prince, claiming he attacked them in the mansion over the course of several days. The lawsuit, filed on Thursday, seeks unspecified damages. They claim they tried to escape three times before the police arrived and arrested the prince. Al-Saud has denied the charges, claiming the women are trying to extort money from him.

The women say the prince forced himself upon them at drug- and booze-fueled parties, including forcing the women to watch as a male aide masturbated the prince and another aide bent over to "break wind" in the prince's face.

"The allegations against him are false," Al-Saud's attorney, Alan Jackson, told the Times. "The decision by the D.A.'s office not to file charges shows that the accuser's stories cannot be substantiated. The sheik is very happy to put it behind him and move on with his life."
