Talent show megastars Carole and Nancy accused of stealing
It's shaping up to be a bad week for the Arab celebosphere's favorite talent show beauties, Carole Samaha and Nancy Ajram, with both superstars accused of stealing.
With 'X Factor Arabia' raking in the ratings and her new album, 'Ihsas' (Feelings), topping the charts, lately it's seemed like everything Carole touches turns to gold.
But things could be turning sour for the Lebanese songstress, with accusations that the music for her hit record 'Layat Hub' (Love Night) was stolen from the late legendary composer, Mohammad Abdel Wahab.
Word has it that Mohammad wrote the tune for Egyptian diva Umm Kulthum's song 'Wahshani Biladi' (I Miss My Country).
The composer's daughter has now promised to take legal action if the rumors are true.
And as if that wasn't enough, Muhsin Jaber, the producer with the legal rights to the song, has threatened to stop the record from being distributed.
Sources claim that Carole thought she was allowed to use the song and is as taken aback as everyone else by the accusations.
Elsewhere, things are no better for 'Arab Idol 2' judge, Nancy Ajram, who is accused of stealing tunes composed by famous theatre singer, Bebe Tina, for her kids album 'Super Nancy'.
While Nancy's camp are keeping quiet about the accusations, Bebe Tina has made her plans to sue as public as possible.
The Lebanese lovelies can now do nothing but hope that celeb luck will prevail and they'll come up smelling of roses once again.
