The Russian beauty queen, who married the former Malaysian king, has defied orders from his powerful family to share pictures of her 18-month-old son on Instagram while a paternity battle rages on.
Oksana Voevodina, 28, shared a cute picture of her and her son on her Instagram account this week.
It comes when Oksana and her ex-husband, Sultan Muhammad V of Kelantan, go to war after their unhappy and short-lived marriage.
The couple married in 2018 before divorcing a year later.

The former spouses are in a fierce battle over a financial settlement and the paternity of their 18-month-old son Leon with the 50-year-old sultan, who denies the child is his.
This week, Oksana went to the image sharing platform to post a picture of her with her son to her 595,000 followers.
In the headline she wrote: “We all want our wishes to be granted. Alone or with someone’s help.
‘This year I decided to start differently and convert the position of expectation into action.

“So, dear ones, the first thing I did was grant your wish – Leon appeared in profile again.”
Oksana was reportedly pressured by the royal family not to post any more pictures of him online.
Soon after the then monarch divorced her under Islamic law, the couple find themselves in a bitter financial battle.
The palace claimed she refused to do a DNA test on the child twice, which she denies, stressing that she is ready anytime.
She 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 following their secret Islamic wedding in 2018, she said.
