Osama bin Laden's son dumped by first wife

Agencies

Osama bin Laden's fourth son Omar has been dumped by his Saudi wife for marrying an English grandmother, a British tabloid reported on Saturday.

Rasha bin Laden, who is in her 20s and lived with her 27-year-old husband along their two-year-old son at Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, has vowed never to return to Omar until he leaves 51-year-old Jane Felix-Browne, The Sun reported.

In fact, Omar's first wife Rasha is enraged by the publicity over her husband's second marriage to the five-time British divorcee.

"Rasha feels left out. Jane's always in the limelight -- the papers in Saudi Arabia are full of stories about her marriage to Omar. Rasha's made it clear she won't return unless things change," a source was quoted as saying.

Though Saudi law permits a man to have more than one wife, the unnamed source said, "Rasha feels humiliated. But Omar refuses to give up Jane so the marriage looks doomed."

"I was told by my family that they do not approve of the marriage and there will be consequences. But I love my second wife and am not going to divorce her. I am going to struggle along with her and this will all settle down," Omar had earlier said.

When contacted, the 51-year-old daughter-in-law of Osama bin Laden who is still trying to acquire a visa to visit her latest hubby in Saudi Arabia, told the tabloid that she did not want to comment on Omar's troubled first marriage.

Omar, who runs a scrap-metal business in Jeddah, recently married his besotted bride in an Islamic ceremony at a friend's house in Cairo with just two of his relatives as witnesses, following a whirlwind romance, which began in Egypt last September, when he spotted Felix-Brown riding a horse near the Great Pyramid.
