The Russian beauty queen who married the former Malaysian King has defied orders of his powerful family to share pictures of her 18-month-old son on Instagram as a paternity battle rages on. 

Oksana Voevodina, 28, shared a sweet image of her and her son on her Instagram account this week. 

It comes as Oksana and her former husband the Sultan Muhammad V of Kelantan are at war after their ill-fated and short-lived marriage.

The couple married in 2018 before divorcing just a year later.

The former spouses are locked in a bitter battle over a financial settlement and over the paternity of her 18-months-old son, Leon, with the Sultan, 50, who denies that the child is his. 

This week, Oksana took to the image sharing platform to post a picture of her with her son to her 595,000 followers.

In the caption, she wrote: ‘We all want our wishes to be fulfilled. By themselves or with someone’s help.

‘This year I decided to start differently and change the position of expectation to action.

‘So, my dears, the first thing I did was fulfill your wish-Leon appeared in the profile again.’

Oksana was reportedly put under pressure by the Royal family to stop showing images of him online. 

Soon after the then monarch used Islamic law to divorce her and the couple are now in a bitter financial battle.  

The palace claimed she refused twice to have a DNA test on the child, something she denies, stressing she is ready anytime.

She has told the former monarch that the baby is ‘a copy of you’ and is ready for a DNA test.

Her son was conceived on a romantic Australian royal holiday after their secret Islamic wedding in 2018, she said.

The 27-year-old model is known to be consulting London lawyers over the row and is examining new ways to push her claim. 

The English-educated sultan quit the Malaysian throne one year ago after controversy over his secret wedding to the former Miss Moscow.

He has not publicly acknowledged the boy as his son nor met the child.

But a leaked draft divorce settlement offer from his lawyers made longterm financial provision for the boy – as long as he was raised a Muslim and never contacted the ex-king. She rejected the package.

She has accused the sultan of shutting out his son conceived in love during their short marriage before walking out on her.

Meanwhile she has restarted her modelling and marketing career, recently featuring in a video from five star hotel Waldorf Astoria Dubai International Financial Centre.
