She teased him and in the book, it is pretty clear that she is teasing and not "making fun" of him. He enjoys a good sense of humor and does not talk poorly about this. His hectic lifestyle would be hard for any person. However, he states very clearly that he feels that the reason for the divorce is that he does not want any more children. Basically, that was the last straw for her. He states time and time again that Khalood was a "very patient woman". He talks about her patience on many levels. It would be hard to be a 27 year old female to sacrifice ever having a child of her own. I believe that she did the best that she could in a difficult situation.
No one can understand the happenings in a marriage as it is private and between only the two people involved.

Even if a woman endures patiently everything, nevertheless, she does not come along amusingly about her husband, but one could mean she has not loved him at all! Nevertheless, Kholood has known from the outset the Alwaleed no more children wants to have, why she has him then generally married? I believe Alwaleed no happy man is what women concerns, they look, nevertheless, certainly only after his money!

Alwaleed has been married (and divorced) three times. His other two wives were of royalty. The money would mean less than his title to other ladies of his stature. I am married to a saudi man. I assure you that a little teasing does not mean that anyone married for money. In islam, teasing, laughing and enjoying one another is thought to be a good part of a marriage. It would be easy to attack a young woman of 27 who is not available to defend herself. I have a great deal of respect for alwaleed. However, he is honest that his last marriage ended because of him. A man who takes responsibility for his wrong-doings is a good man. He was quite evasive originally regarding the children topic. When discussing his marriage, he said that once he told her that he never wanted to have more children, it was over. Had she wanted him for only money, she would have stayed and endured a childless life.

Certainly Alwaleed is a good and honest person. It is only a pity that he no luck has with women, maybe he looks after the wrong ones. Nevertheless, it must have dripped him that he reports about this banter in his book. Nevertheless, Kholood knew to begin to her marriage he no more children wants, why has Kholood generally married him then or has remained so long with him?
Of course it is also very sad for Kholood, such a thing should happen to no woman, I simply do not fancy her life after a this connection. Nevertheless, she is no woman from the royal family and will not simply have it certainly, if she still in Saudi Arabia lives. Hopefully she finds a man with them a family can found.

Khalid did get married. I've seen the wedding pictures. Also, in Alwaleed's new book, khalid's fiance was mentioned and their wedding as well.. Khalid married a friend of Reem's. Reem introduced them..

Yes Khalid is married I read the book. You can find pictures of him at this site. And I think the pic nr. 12 is the one with his wife Kholood? Correct me if I am wrong.

Although I can't be sure because the picture is a side profile...pic no. 12 looks like it could be his sister.
I've seen a pic of his former wife, Khalood, and it doesn't really look like her
alwaleed has a strict rule about keeping his wives out of media photos. He says he does it out of Saudi tradition and respect..

I don't know if someone posted this before. If you go to this site you can see an interesting video about alwaleed and the women working for him.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alwaleed_bin_Talal

You see at the end of the page EXTERNAL LINKS. Then click on A Dutch State television broadcast about Saudi woman with extensive footage of the Prince (Language=Dutch) .

It is a dutch video but the interview is in english. I think at the end it was so funny to see Alwaleed go through the Quran trying to find a verse that women can work. The journalist asked him if he can recite something but he calls for all his people and it become a whole mission.

You mean what made Khalood divorce Prince Alwaleed?

If that is the question, they divorced because she wanted children and he did not. Alwaleed says that this was "the straw that broke the camels back". Once this issue came between him, that was it.

He describes her as being very patient and a good person. She also had a very difficult time dealing with his schedule. His schedule is really really crazy and hard for a "normal" person to handle. After reading his book, his schedule made me tired. I could not marry him either :p

No I heard she is a singer or some kind of a celebrity. With all respect to the woman I don't think Alwaleed would marry that type of a woman. Well you would never know but from what I heard him say in interviews and his book it doesn't look like he would. And he doesn't go public with his wives.

I think the information I got was not correct. If I read this two articles I think she is one of his employees Ms. Lameis Al-Mouhandis and Ms. Roaa Shar.

Alwaleed Donates $1 Million to Kenya

Prince Walid’s female entourage causes consternation
http://www.khaleejtimes.com/DisplayA...=theworld&col=

But I hope someone would translate this article then we know who she is.

The impression that I got from him (reading interviews, the book, dvd, etc) was that he wasn't really clear about not wanting to have children. I mean, sometimes you will read that he absolutely did not want any more children and this was a decision that he made right after Reem was born and that is that. However, in other interviews, he has been quoted as saying that he was "hesitant" to have any more. There is a huge difference between "hesitant" and being "absolutely against it". You know how it is..She could have married him with HOPE that he would change his mind about wanting to have more children.
She also married him very young. At 22, you may feel that you are ok with never becoming a mother. However, by 27, those feelings can change. She may have wanted more from life.
I think the divorce was a result of multiple issues. His lifestyle would be just about impossible for most women. However, in his words, he said that the child issue was the ultimate deciding factor for her..

He has been quoted as saying that he may never marry again. He said that, although Islam states that a man needs to marry and have a wife, he does not see how a wife could "fit" into his life. He says that he has been thinking about it deeply and considering it but that he really doesn't see it happening. ..only time will tell..
