The Sultan of Brunei has a family secret: His brother Prince Jefri has spent billions and had a luxury yacht with a salacious name.

Brunei’s Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah has a family secret: His sex-obsessed and profligate spending brother, Prince Jefri.

The playboy Prince Jefri Bolkiah led an exorbitantly lavish lifestyle, flying in planeloads of women who he entertained and showered with gifts.

The notoriously extravagant and wanton lifestyle past of Prince Jefri is in stark contrast to his older brother’s stringent new laws.

The Sultan of the tiny sovereign gas and oil rich state has introduced a death penalty for gay sex.

Adulterers in the Muslim-majority sultanate blessed with a pleasant climate, excellent roads, golf courses and yacht clubs may now be stoned or whipped.

Convicted robbers face the cutting off of their right hand or left foot.

However, the sultan’s brother Prince Jefri once allegedly kept a paid harem of up to 40 women, and was accused of embezzling $14.8 billion.

He entertained women on his luxury yacht called “Tits” which had lifeboat tenders named “Nipple 1” and “Nipple 2”.

Until his assets were frozen in 2000, Jefri “has probably gone through more cash than any other human being on earth”, Vanity Fair reported.

At one point the diminutive prince, whose full name is Jefri Bolkiah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, allegedly spent $50m a month.

He bought colossal diamonds for his numerous consorts and collected 2300 luxury cars, including Ferraris, Rolls Royces and Bentleys.

One girlfriend later auctioned off the necklace given to her by the prince for $100,000.

He paid $7 million for a rug woven of gold thread and embroidered with jewels.

Jefri owned a helicopter and eight airplanes including a private Boeing 747, and bought paintings by Renoir, Manet and Degas.

Through his 200 companies, he bought more than 500 properties including a collection of five-star hotels.

He owned the New York Palace, Los Angeles’ Hotel Bel-Air, the Plaza Athénée in Paris and bought London’s former Playboy Club for $34 million, more than four times its market value.

In 2010, American woman Jillian Lauren published a book about her former experiences as Prince Jefri’s “number two girlfriend”.

In Some Girls: My Life in a Harem, she said the prince paid for young attractive women for short-term hires of three weeks, and others for stays of up to a year or more.
