Ebraheem Al Samadi is married! The star of Netflix's Dubai Bling has recently announced his surprise wedding—so we thought it was about time to find out a little bit more about him.
The Netflix reality show premiered on October 27, 2022, and fans near and far gravitated toward the glamorous personalities of the Dubai Bling cast and their high-flying lives in the City of Gold—from real estate queen Zeina Khoury to famous TV presenter Lojain Omran, to Ebraheem Al Samadi. Following the first season, Ebraheem was described by some viewers as the villain of Dubai Bling. But one thing that isn't up for debate about him is that he has the highest Dubai Bling cast net worth, so he can certainly put his money where his gossiping mouth is!
But who exactly is the recently-married millionaire businessman making waves in the UAE? Take a seat at the Forever Rose Cafe (more on that later) and we'll give you the scoop on everything you need to know about Dubai Bling star Ebraheem Al Samadi.
Who is Ebraheem Al Samadi from 'Dubai Bling'?
Ebraheem Al Samadi made his way into the business world at a mere 14 years old, while most of us were busy studying algebra. The Kuwait-born go-getter, who spent his childhood in Florida, sold thrift shop clothing and items on eBay right from his mother's apartment. He even earned one of the company's impressive 1000 Power Sellers awards; not too shabby for a pre-teen!
Eventually, this knack for business turned out to be greatly profitable. Al Samadi earned a master's from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland, UK, and went on to acquire Forever Rose London in 2015, a company that specializes in long-lasting preserved blooms. From centerpieces to Christmas ornaments, the roses allegedly pull in $22 million of business per year for Al Samadi. And let's not forget the company's Instagram-worthy cafe chain (two locations in Abu Dhabi, one in Dubai and one in London) and the impending bridal lounge in Abu Dhabi.
Though he seems most well-known for Forever Rose London, Dubai Bling's Ebraheem also relocated to Dubai to grow the family business, Al Samadi Group, which appears to be made up of various different businesses based in the Middle East, including restaurants and coffee shops. Not only does he have some impressive business acumen—according to Al Samadi's official website, he's also earned some prestigious style and social accolades. He is reported to have been crowned one of Esquire Middle East’s Best Dressed Men in 2018, and was given the title of Cosmopolitan Middle East’s Bachelor of the Year in 2017.
Business and fashion aside, everyone's curious to get to know the Forever Rose mastermind on a personal note. Clearly—well, according to Instagram—he loves to travel, hit the gym and surround himself with others. But who is Ebraheem Al Samadi, and who are his family? Is he single? And given all of his successful business ventures, what is Ebraheem Al Samadi's net worth?
Ebraheem Al Samadi wife: is he married?
Just a few months ago, Ebraheem Al Samadi's relationship status was unknown—but as of the beginning of March 2023, it appears that the Netflix star has recently tied the knot!
Al Samadi has just shared a series of beautiful pictures and videos to his Instagram, mostly of himself in a traditional outfit, and of a stunning, rose-laden (of course) venue—the Rixos Premium Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi—complete with a wedding dress, wedding cake, and plenty of signage of the letters 'E&H', indicating a wedding had taken place.
In the caption of one of the posts, Ebraheem spoke on behalf of himself and his new wife—whose identity so far remains a mystery. He wrote, "A special thank you to @rixospremiumsaadiyat for being so welcoming to me and my wife and thank you @whiteseasons.ae for making the best wedding in abudhbai and thank you @dorota_janina_photography for the best photos ever."
So who might Ebraheem Al Samadi's wife be? Harper's Bazaar Arabia revealed that all guests at the wedding—including fellow Dubai Bling cast members Lojain Omran and Loujain Adada—were asked to hand their phones in before the ceremony, so there aren't many snaps of the special moment.
But there were however from candid shots shared by other family and friends in attendance, showing the back of the beautiful bride in her dress—as well as some images of her with her face blocked out via emojis.
As such, while we know he is now married, we have pretty much no idea who Ebraheem Al Samadi's wife is, given that he and their entire circle are doing what they can to (so far) shield her identity from the public.
While we're a bit gutted not to know, we appreciate the boundaries and privacy these newlyweds are putting in place—and a huge congratulations to the happy couple! Perhaps we'll see more of the pair on a possible Dubai Bling season 2?
Ebraheem al Samadi net worth
As we mentioned, Ebraheem Al Samadi is thought to be the richest of the entire Dubai Bling cast, as a result of his profitable business ventures.
While it's not something Ebraheem himself has confirmed, it's thought that his net worth sits at around a whopping $50 million—largely thanks to the success of the Forever Rose London brand.
According to Al Samadi's own website, he has grown Forever Rose London into a business worth over $21m since acquiring it; so it's no wonder he's making a healthy living via the business!
It's also fair to assume that Ebraheem Al Samadi is now earning a fairly healthy salary as part of his role on the Netflix reality show Dubai Bling, though the cast's compensation has understandably not been made public.
Ebraheem Al Samadi age: how old is he?
Born on January 15, 1988, Ebraheem Al Samadi is currently 34 years old. He is a Capricorn. (We know you were curious to dig into his astrology, don't pretend.)
According to SCMP, he was born in Kuwait before moving to Florida in the United States with his mother when he was 13, after his parents split up. He then moved to the United Arab Emirates in 2010, when he was around 22.
Ebraheem al Samadi Instagram: what is his handle?
You can find Ebraheem Al Samadi on Instagram at the handle @thebloomingman— a nod to his successful, floral-based business. His website also carries the same name.
From pictures abroad to dinners with friends, Al Samadi posts quite a bit of his travels and experiences with his 547,000-plus followers, along with a few good old selfies. And since Dubai Bling dropped, Ebraheem has also shared plenty of pictures of himself and his cast-mates on his feed.
Ebraheem al Samadi parents
As mentioned, the businessman's parents divorced when he was just 13 years old, but aside from that, not much is known about Ebraheem's parents.
It is reported that his father was a wealthy Kuwaiti hotelier when he was born though, and that he is the youngest of five siblings.
We do get a glimpse of his mother on Dubai Bling though, where she's seen nagging her son about finding a romantic partner—which it seems she no longer has to worry about!
Dubai Bling season 1 is available to stream on Netflix.
