Just before his father's resignation in 2011 Alaa had a bitter argument with his brother Gamal Mubarak. He reportedly told him "Instead of working to help your father be honoured at the end of his life, you helped damage his image this way." The two brothers almost came to blows and senior palace officials had to interfere in order to cool down both men.
In 2011, he was arrested together with his father and brother, and he and his brother were released in October 2015. The EU had imposed sanctions on father and sons, and froze all assets that Mubarak disclosed.
In 2013, the British Virgin Islands financial services discovered that Ala Mubarak owned 'Pan World Investments', an investment fund for the Mubarak family of nearly $1 billion incorporated by Mossack Fonseca, who said he was introduced to them by Credit Suisse.
Mubarak is married to Heidy Rasekh, and they have had two sons, Muhammad and Omar. Muhammad died on 18 May 2009, aged 12. It was announced that he had suffered a 'severe health crisis', a brain haemorrhage. It later emerged that he had sustained a fatal head injury while riding a quad bike. He was checked into the Maadi Military Hospital for a couple of hours before being flown to Paris to no avail. His body was returned and buried in Cairo.
