Not only was this woman kidnapped by her own family, but her kids were taken away from her because of her ‘green hair and tattoos’…

A Saudi Arabian fitness influencer lost custody of her kids because she had green hair and tattoos.

She has finally  been freed after apparently being kidnapped by her family who felt she was shaming them with her online activities.

Refa Al-Yami – a popular fitness influencer – was forcibly taken from her apartment by family members. There were rumours that she may even have been killed by them.

Reports claimed that she was the victim of an ‘honour killing’, but it was eventually confirmed that she had been taken from her apartment in Jeddah to Najran. The car she had been kidnapped in had been stopped, and four relatives were arrested.

Her husband has custody of her kids

Previously, her husband was awarded custody of their children. He used his wife’s tattoos and images of her workouts in court as proof that she was not a fit mother for her four children.

The authorities confirmed that she is “safe” and is currently being looked after by social services. However, human rights activists dispute this claim saying that social services are akin to ‘prison’.

Refa Al-Yami is a popular influencer with a large online following, especially on TikTok and Snapchat where she offers advice on health, beauty and fitness.
