Haifa Wehbe's golden touch
Lebanese pop princess Haifa Wehbe isn't short of adoring fans or money, but according to a report in Al Diyar News the starlet has been enjoying the attention of some VIP admirers recently.
Eyebrows were raised across Qatar this week after rumors surfaced that Prime Minister Sheikh Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani bought Haifa a luxurious $1 million beach villa. The PM is said to have taken a break from his political duties to write out a cheque for the star after hearing that she had been forced to endure three weeks in a hotel on her last visit. Never one to be outdone, Haifa allegedly returned the favor by buying him his own million dollar property in Lebanon.
But, Qatar's PM isn't the only Arab leader to have reportedly fallen for Haifa's charms. The King of Bahrain allegedly got in there first, digging deep for a private eight hour performance at his palace.
And, deeming cash an insufficient payment for the songstress' services, the King is said to have given Haifa a gold map of Bahrain worth $2 million and an invitation for a two week holiday on his royal yacht.
Online gossipers were disappointed to hear that this golden touch could be more rumor than reality after an angry Haifa tweeted: “All that was written in the Lebanese newspaper Al Diyar News is mere lies that are a fabrication from the imagination of people who have nothing better to do with their time. For I do not know any of the figures they stated in the reports, and I have taken the necessary legal procedures to prosecute those responsible for creating such lies.”
