Wafah Dufour

Wafah Dufour Brief Biography

Wafah Dufour (born as Wafah bin Laden, born in Los Angeles, California) is an American singer-songwriter, socialite, and model. Her father, Yeslam bin Ladin (half brother of Osama bin Laden), is Saudi Arabian (father of Yemeni origin and mother of Iranian origin) and her mother, Carmen bin Ladin, is of Swiss father and Iranian mother from the princely family (mothers name: Mirdoth/Sheybani). She has Swiss nationality by her mother and United States nationality by birth.

Wafah Dufour spent the early part of her life in Los Angeles, then Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, but later moved to Geneva, Switzerland, with her parents. In 1988 her parents separated and finally divorced only in January 2006. Her father and his family have reportedly not spoken to either her or her two younger sisters since she was 15 years old. She changed her last name to her mother's maiden name, Dufour. She earned a law degree from Geneva University and a master's degree from Columbia Law School in New York City. She speaks French (her mother tongue), English, and Persian. In early 2006, publisher Judith Regan signed Dufour to appear in a reality television show which planned to follow her battle for success in the music industry in a fly-on-the-wall documentary. In the end, the project was canceled due to lingering resentments about the September 11 attacks. At present, she is recording her first album and she now lives in London. She is also set to collaborate with Atlanta rock band Black Lips. As of 2011, her publicist began referring to her by her birth name, Wafah bin Laden.
