Lucy faces a second lawsuit from former trumpets player
It appeared that Egyptian belly dancer Lucy underestimated the dispute that previously occurred between her and a former trumpet player in her band. In the beginning the trumpet player had accused Lucy of using physical violence with the help of her bodyguard against him, recently the man filed a second lawsuit against the dancer for ruining his name and reputation.
According to the Arabic magazine Sayidati, Lucy had passed out flyers among a number of bands and nightclubs accusing the man of being a failure having no talent. She also stressed that he was expelled from the music academy and does not hold a PhD as he claims.
The musician revealed that Lucy is currently being brought in for questioning regarding the case. In turn the dancer went into rage saying that bringing her in for questioning by the police is crazy for she did not commit a crime against anyone. She denied ever spreading any form of flyers, for she is a well-known artist and would never stoop down to a point jeopardizing her career and reputation. Lucy added that it is true what has been written and the musician has been expelled from the Arts Academy for failing many courses.
Lucy stressed that she will not go to the police station for she has nothing to do with the man, and the academy will deal with his issue by providing records of his failure in courses and proving he is a loser.
The dancer said that a number of teachers at the academy experienced difficulities with the trumpet player and caught on easily to all his lies and claims of having a PhD. She added that he is so hungry for fame that he used her to get there, in which he succeeded in some way by filing a lawsuit against her and having his picture posted in most newspapers and magazines.
On a different note, Lucy is working on an album that is said to hold several surprises by being different from the music people hear today. "I will be working with composer Ammar Al Shurei'i on the album, but we have not yet decided on a release date" Lucy said.
Earlier last October, a controversy aroused between belly dancers Dina and Lucy over a possible film-role as the late Egyptian dancer, Samia Gamal. The competition was sparked between the two dancers after producer, Sami Al Adel, announced the idea of adapting the biography of Samia Gamal on the big screen.
Lucy expressed her eagerness to play Gamal's role, "it would be a dream come true for me, as I consider Samia Gamal one of the most important belly dancers in the history in Egypt." Meanwhile, Lucy denied that she was engaged in a personal conflict with anybody for that role, reiterating that such a character can be played more than once. -Albawaba.com
