The daughter of Malaysian tycoon was born with three continents, lavish homes, private jets, and massive bodyguards at her service, it was the four years of multi-million-pound divorce hearing between her parents that blew her mind off.
But, if you had all of these and you'd know that you're 'soon-to-be' heiress, will you even think of leaving everything behind for the sake of a guy who doesn't even have a job? Well, you might get emotional and say YES. But darling, life is not a fairytale!
You can fall in love, but when it comes to building a relationship (which her parents failed to do) for a lifelong time, it takes sacrifice and patience; because no amount of money in the world can do that for you.
In today's world, where most of our time is spent on social media 're-living the loop every day,' we make a lot of promises but how many of them do we fulfil in reality? I'll not comment on this.
It is said that a real love story never dies and Angeline Francis Khoo, heiress of Laura Ashley proved it true by giving up all her wealth to marry the man of her dreams.
Have a look!
The 78-year-old, Khoo Kay Peng is the chairman of Malayan United Industries. In 2015, Khoo was ranked at 44th number in Forbes list of 50 richest Malaysians. His worth was counted as US$ 300 million.
In 2008, during his daughter's Master's degree at Oxford University, Angeline met Caribbean-born Jedidiah, who is now a data scientist, but then used to be a junior dean at Pembroke College.
The reason she gave away her part of the family fortune is her father, who disapproved Mr Francis Jedidiah for her. In her recent interview, she exposed that she's not at all talking to her multi-millionaire father, Mr Khoo Kay Peng.
On her decision to walk away from money, Angelia shares "Money amplifies negative characteristics, and that can cause problems. To walk away from that was very easy. I didn't even consider it."
Angeline says, "I always had a budget, but it became critical. To me it was the hardest but the best time of our lives. I think Jed would say the same. It was the most bonding; it gives you a foundation."
She adds further, "Mum was perfect for making us aware of people in less fortunate circumstances, but unless you experience what it's like to worry about how you're going to pay for your food and bills, you can't ever really get it."
In an elaborate interview Angeline told Daily Mail, "If I had been born in a slightly different way, in a somewhat different place, my life could be different. Even in our family, you can see it: the fact that Alex was born with autism and I wasn't – our lives have been different because of that."
On her parents' old age, Angeline says; "It's certainly not going the way they'd have imagined. It's scary to be 70 and then all of sudden you have to face life all by yourself. It's not how my mother expected life would be at 70, but she'll have to work through that."
Reportedly, the couple tied the knot in the chapel of Pembroke College, where Mr Francis Jedidiah used to work. It was a traditional gathering attended by approx. 30 guests with no one from Angeline's family.
Some reports on the internet claim that the "she has left million of dollars behind. Well, when there's a will there's way, and Angeline found her calling and started her own business. Today, she is a fashion designer with her brand 'Rosie on Fire', which works for a social cause too."
As her company is already in its third year, Angeline hopes to do well in Malaysia (she also has her father's profile to her name). It has been featured in Vogue, and she is hopeful about opening a shop in London this year.
Somewhere in between all of these, Angeline, her mother and brother have found their 'freedom'.
Being born into luxuries is not a choice, but people get used to it so much and so deeply that they sacrifice even the purest forms of love, relationships, and affection or care for the sake of it. But, it is not the case with Angeline.
The lady reached beyond conscience and all the stereotypes to marry the love of her life. After all, stories like these are rare in today's world. Think about it.
That's all, folks!
