Who was Prince Azim?

Prince Azim was the sixth child of the Sultan of Brunei, and the fourth in line to the throne.

Local media report that the Prince died in Badar Seri Begawan at around 10am on Saturday October 25.

He hosted and attended lavish parties, and was snapped alongside stars such as Pamela Anderson and Michael Jackson. 

The Prince was also known for his extravagant wealth - with an estimated net worth of $5 billion. 

He used his wealth to entertain A-list pals, with some guests said to have come away with party bags worth up to £20,000 a head.

As a Hollywood producer, he worked on films including You're Not You starring Hilary Swank, and Dark Places starring Charlize Theron.
