The Emir of Qatar’s son partied with a Kardashians star and drove a fleet of supercars while studying in Los Angeles, it has been revealed.
Sheikh Khalifa bin Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, 28, enjoyed rubbing shoulders with celebrities while studying at the University of Southern California (USC).
Al Thani reportedly arrived in Los Angeles on a private jet in 2011 before posting up at the Beverly Wilshire hotel, made famous in the film Pretty Woman.
He had a fleet of multi-million pound supercars and would enjoy luxury suites for Lakers games and lunch at the Ivy while living in Beverly Hills.
The prince had a half-dozen security detail, chauffeurs, concierges, trainers, a nurse and a ‘fixer’ while living in LA, according to The Los Angeles Times.
His butlers lived in $600-a-night rooms at the Beverly Wilshire, while he and his friends lived it up in suites looking over Rodeo Drive.
He would take regular trips to Las Vegas with his entourage according to social media posts, and reportedly spent $300,000 over a six-week stay in 2014.
In LA, the prince would enjoy an army of servants, including a man who made his tea and one who prepared his hookah pipe.
His friends included Scott Disick from Keeping Up With the Kardashians and the prince would wear custom trucker hats emblazoned with his initials: KHK.
In May 2015, the ex-boyfriend of Kourtney Kardashian posed on on the hood of Al Thani’s McLaren for an Instagram post which read: ‘Thanks for the ride @KHK.’
Al Thani first enrolled at LA Mission College in Beverley Hills in 2011 before moving to USC.
The prince made the ‘dean’s list’, which recognises high achievers at universities, three times during his years at USC.
He returned to the Middle East and joined Qatar’s internal security service five years ago after USC gave him ‘special dispensation’ to pursue a master’s degree remotely.
