Belly dancer Dina denies fleeing Egypt after scandal and admits marriage to businessman
Egyptian belly dancer Dina has denied all rumors of her fleeing Egypt and going off to Paris after a scandal of her involvement in pornographic movies with businessman Hussam Abdul Fatih, who is currently serving a jail sentence for money embezzlement, was revealed.
According to the London based daily, Al Sharq Al Awsat, Dina had just returned to Cairo-Egypt after spending a two-week vacation in Lebanon and the US where she spent the New Year’s Eve and took time off to relax. The dancer expressed her disturbance at the shocking news of a her involvement in such a scandal saying that she did not imagine that taking a vacation and leaving Egypt would induce such news.
Dina admitted to the daily that she was secretly married to Hussam but the two had recently divorced. She also added that there is no involvement between her and the scandal as well as she has not committed any act by breaking the law that would force her to flee the country. Dina had said that she was never called in for questioning proving her innocent of such rumors as she intends to begin accepting offers to hold performances in Egypt.
Last week, rumors circulated that Dina had left Cairo-Egypt and ran-off to hide away in Paris-France after her involvement in pornographic movies was revealed. She had announced that she would not be holding any performances during the New Year’s Eve and cancelled all prior agreements made. A number of newspapers had said that Dina’s excuse for cancellation to most of the hotels and private parties she had contracted with was that her sister was in a sudden accident. But in fact her decision came after a number of videotapes were found in a businessman’s apartment containing obscene and provocative scenes of her.
The Egyptian Actor’s Association Committee announced that Dina left the country after her name came up in the scandal with the businessman. The committee also announced that they do not intend to defend the dancer for she is not a member of the association.
It was added that Dina was not the only woman involved in the hearsay and another actress whose name was not revealed has apparently taken part in the scandal. Numerous efforts were made to contact the dancer to question her regarding her involvement in the pornographic tapes, but to no use as she refused to make any statements and left her mobile with her business manager.
Dina's love for dancing started at the age of nine, showing several talents in acting, dancing, and playing music. During the course of her life, she lived in Rome, where her father worked for the Middle East news agency in Rome. – Albawaba.com
