Saudi Arabia Deportation Rumors

Within 48 hours, he gained over 800,000 followers on Facebook.[31]

 

In July 2013, three months after the rumors started, he admitted that the story was misleading and that he was never kicked out.[19]

 

Debunking the rumors that were spread worldwide, he said that he and two delegates from the United Arab Emirates attended the annual Jenadrivah Heritage & Culture Festival in Riyadh; they were allegedly just "looking for something to do."[34]

 

Al Gala said some girls at the festival recognized him and asked for his autograph and a photo. When the crowd of female admirers grew, he said Saudi Arabia's religion police intervened and asked him to leave the festival, not the country.[34]

They came and they asked me politely to leave the festival […] because it’s not really allowed to mix with girls there.

Looking back at the incident, Borkan al-Gala credits the Saudi Arabia incident for kick starting his modeling career.[34]
