The sultan's second-born son was well known for hosting extravagant parties with celebrity guests including Pamela Anderson, Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey.

He had produced a handful of movies, including the 2014 feature "You're Not You" starring Hilary Swank, building a part-time career in the film industry despite international anger over his father's move toward draconian punishments in Brunei.
