Clive Davis, Oscar party dump hotel over Sultan owner's Shariah law in Brunei
by Hollie McKay
The Beverly Hills Hotel just lost two more big-name clients, Clive Davis and Jeffrey Katzenberg, because its owner is introducing an Islamic Shariah-based penal code in the oil-rich East Asian country of Brunei.
Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah announced last week that he would push ahead with the criminal code that would eventually include severing of limbs and death by stoning for people who are gay or commit adultery. The Sultan – through the Brunei Investment Agency – owns the Dorchester Collection luxury hotel chain, which manages the Hotel Bel-Air and The Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles.
A source told FOX411 that music mogul Clive Davis moved out of the Beverly Hills Hotel over the weekend as a result of the Sultan's actions, although his rep did not respond to a comment request.
