Rai rebels redux: Khaled flees homosexual-friendly France for the warm embrace of the Moroccan monarchy

Back in June, it was announced that the King of Rai, Khaled, rai's legendary "bad boy" would be decamping France for Morocco. He and his wife Samia (a Moroccan citizen) had decided do so after France legalized gay marriage, and for the sake of the proper moral education of his children.

In August, a royal decree granted Khaled Moroccan citizenship, and King Mohammed IV (towards whom the rai singer has expressed his friendship and admiration) went so far as to give Khaled a villa on the Sa√Ędia coast.

 Rebel, indeed. (See my 2010 post on Khaled here.)
