After a “long battle with illness” at the age of 38, Prince Azim, the Playboy son of the Sultan of Brunei, who parties with celebrities, died.
The Sultan’s sixth and fourth in line to the throne, died on 24 October 2020 (Saturday) at around 10 a.m. in Bandar Seri Begawan.
His exact cause of death was not reported, but for some time he had been fighting with illness as per local media accounts.
Prince Azim, a producer in Hollywood, was known for his playboy lifestyle and was frequently pictured with celebrities rubbing shoulders at lavish parties in Europe and the US.
According to Newspapers, Entertainment, and Arts Worldwide, Azim’s net worth was reported to be $5 billion at the time of his death, which was fabulously wealthy.
Alongside the prince, Michael Jackson, Pamela Anderson, and Joan Collins have all been pictured over the years, including at his 30th birthday party.
Mischa Barton and Scarlett Johansson were among the other celebrity friends.
Azim also established a friendship with the late reality TV star Jade Goody, who once defined him as a ‘brilliant mate’ after catching her on Celebrity Big Brother.
In 2007, the couple was spotted out partying together. ‘He wanted to meet me, and we talked and got on like a fire station,’ said Jade at the time.
The Prince gifted a ring to Jade Goody as a ‘token of friendship’ that she believed was worth about £ 3 million, while experts later estimated its value at about £ 30,000.
In accordance with Islamic culture, seven days of national mourning were announced, during which celebrations were prohibited, and he was buried on the same day.
