Cher pleads to Saudi Crown Prince

So now it’s U.S. singer Cher’s turn to weigh in on the wave of arrests that targeted senior officials, royals and billionaires in Saudi Arabia.

Among those still in detention is Prince Turki bin Abdullah, a former governor of Riyadh and, according to Cher, a friend of her son Elijah. Prince Turki was among the 381 people subpoenaed for questioning either as suspects or to provide evidence in a so-called corruption crackdown that started in November.
