According to the latest list of Malaysia's richest person by Forbes, Kuok has led the pack since 2006 when Forbes began ranking the richest Malaysians.
KUALA LUMPUR: Billionaire Robert Kuok’s wife was reportedly found dead, apparently due to heart failure at a Seoul hotel, Yonhap news agency reported.
According to the news, the 65-year-old, identified by her initial G, was found in a room at Hotel Shilla in central Seoul at about 12:45 pm.
G was there to attend her daughter’s wedding next week.
Meanwhile, local news portal The Star Online has denied the Korean news agency report, saying that the news is false.
Sources close to the family apparently told the portal that the woman was not Kuok's wife, Ho Poh Lin.
Kuok is one of Malaysia's richest persons, according to Forbes, a position he has held since 2006.
