Diana Haddad looking for permanent residence in Egypt
Lebanese singer Diana Haddad asked her business manager to begin looking into buying a suitable apartment for her in Al Muhandiseen-Cairo in Egypt. The singer claimed that every visit to Cairo costs her over 30 thousands Egyptian pounds in accommodations, and since she frequently travels to Egypt felt it necessary to have her own apartment for her convenience.
According to the UAE based daily, Al Bayan, Diana previously asked her business manager to find an apartment for her in Al Zamalek neighborhood in Cairo, known to be one of the most prestigious areas in Egypt, but prices were too high and there were no available vacancies. The singer set a half of a million Egyptian pounds as the maximum limit she is willing to pay for an apartment.
Diana announced that she would be residing in Cairo for a period of six months every year and the rest of the time will be spent between Dubai, Lebanon, and other countries around the world.
On a different note, Haddad firmly denied rumors circulating in November of her divorce and separation from Emirati director Suhail Al Abdoul. Rumors came about after alleged financial disputes the couple had. She was very disturbed towards the rumors that are affecting her personal life now saying that they hold no truth to them and are failed attempts to defame her. She also noted that she knows who is behind them, and that they are part of a yearly attempt to try and hurt her. Haddad added that she lives in perfect harmony and happiness with her husband and their daughter Sophia.
Haddad sang on October 23 to a 7000-strong audience at the University of Bahrain, on the occasion of the Bahrain's first presidential elections since 1973. Bahrain’s King Sheikh Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa attended the concert, which witnessed the participation of several ‘Khaliji’ (Gulf-Arab) singers.
Born on October 1, 1976, Haddad's musical career was kicked off, in 1992 after her participation in the popular TV show Studio Al Fan, where she sang her first song entitled "Tayr Al Yamama" (The Dove). –Albawaba.com
