Dina runs-off to Paris after pornographic videotapes of her were found in a businessman’s apartment
Egyptian dancer Dina has suddenly left Cairo-Egypt and ran-off to hide away in Paris-France after her involvement in a scandal was revealed. She announced that she will not be holding any performances during the New Year’s Eve and has cancelled all prior agreements made. Dina’s excuse for cancellation to most of the hotels and private parties she had contracted with was that she had to return to Egypt due to her sister’s 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 daily Al Goumhoria reported that 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.
The daily added that the dancer had recently received her divorce papers from her husband, whom she was married to in secrecy, after her scandalous involvement with the businessman. It was also noted that Dina does not have any brothers or sisters making her excuse for fleeing the country invalid.
Dina’s provocative and forbidden pleasures in her dancing, recently caused her problems with the Egyptian censorship in her latest movie, "Haramoh Fi Al Wizara" (His Wife in the Ministry). The movie, which also stars comedian Ahmed Adam, sparked debate in Egypt as the censorship asked for the omission of five scenes where Dina appears to be dancing in an indecent, hot and seductive way.
Marking the second problem for her with the censorship after her movie "Jasad Zaojati" (My Wife's Body) with Mahmoud Hamida, Dina refused to comment on the news, but went on explaining her role in the movie.
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.
Dancing was not an easy career, and Dina had to battle for her family's approval. Yet, she is now one of the most gifted Egyptian dancers, with a master's degree in philosophy. – Albawaba.com
