Court proves marriage between Suzan Tamim and her producer
Over and over Lebanese singer Suzan Tamim has been strongly denying allegations made by Lebanese producer Adel Maatouq, owner of the Arab European Production Company, that they are married. A Lebanese court has finally put an end to Suzan’s denials and proved that she is in fact married to Adel and legal papers were presented as proof of the union between them, reported the London based magazine, Sayidaty.
A Lebanese civil court has released a warrant demanding that Tamim returns to her husband, after Adel filed a lawsuit claiming that his wife has left her home without his consent and orders her to return, which is his right according to civil law in Lebanon.
This is the second lawsuit Adel has filed against Suzan in addition to a number of other lawsuits forbidding her from continuing her singing career after she had illegally broke her contract with his production company. It was revealed that Suzan has not received the second lawsuit due to the fact that she is currently on a tour around the United States of America.
Suzan’s situation seems to worsen by the minute with one problem following the next. The singer, who was held at a New Jersey police station for attempting to escape paying a fine to the sponsor of her concerts, Danny, realized that her passport is missing when she was asked to present any form of identification.
The incident forced the singer to seek the assistance of the Lebanese Embassy in the US hoping that they would grant her a new passport. Once the singer's name appeared on the embassy's computer, the embassy refused to grant her a new passport due to the fact that there was three different lawsuits against her filed in Lebanon.
At this point the embassy was able to grant her a Laisser Passer, which is a French term for an identification card that proves who she is and allows her safe passage to Lebanon. It was added that the singer is not off the hook with regards to her case with the sponsor and no new development has occurred.
The sponsor of Suzan’s concerts in the US has filed a complaint demanding the singer pay him 760 thousand US dollars in compensation for losses she has caused him. It was revealed that during her tour the singer would suddenly decide not to perform if the number of attendance is too low without prior notice to the sponsor a matter which caused the sponsor numerous losses by having to return prepaid tickets to people in addition to having to pay for the space that was to be used by the singer. After repeating this instance more than once, the sponsor filed a complaint against the singer and in turn she was seized for two hours at a local police station. At the station, the singer stressed that the contract between her and the sponsor does not specify that she must perform every concert.
While the singer was being questioned by the police, she faked a nervous breakdown and was immediately sent to hospital. Numerous tests were made and it was apparent that Suzan was perfectly normal and that she had faked the whole thing and was sent back to the New Jersey police station. The sponsor had made it clear that the singer had put on the charade just to get out of paying him the 760 and accused her of fraud. The singer remains in police custody and is forbidden to leave until she pays the sponsor the fine of 760 thousand US dollars.
Previously in Egypt, the singer faced prosecution and was held at a police station for two day after a dispute broke out between her and Adel. At this point the Egyptian Artist Association released a decision forbidding her from holding any form of entertainment on Egyptian soil in order to steer away from falling into legal lawsuits with Adel's company. The decision stated that no party is to hold any form of agreement with the singer in any way, for she is forbidden to work in Egypt due to the fact that she only holds a visitor's visa and not a working permit, in addition to the fact that anyone who does not abide by the new order shall face criminal prosecution. – Albawaba.com
