Frenemies or just friends? Nabil Shuail denies drama with Hussein al Jassmi
Rumor has it that two of our biggest Gulf stars have been playing frenemies. Kuwait’s “nightingale” singer Nabil Shuail and X Factor superstar judge Hussein Al Jassmi were gossiped to be on the outs after Nabil’s 17-year-old son auditioned for the reality TV talent show where Hussein sits on the Judging panel, but the aspiring star didn’t get enough votes to get through to Round Two.
According to Panet, an Arabic news & entertainment website, Nabil denied rumors of probs with Hussein after the incident, making it clear that he and the Emarati singer are "best buddies," since he's the reason behind his success in Kuwait.
Nabil, who’s a bit on the heavy side, jokingly responded to the accusation that Hussein had pulled the carpet from underneath him with, "How could he do that? I'm too heavy!”
He assured that he’s totes in touch with the Hussein and is the first to high five him whenever he releases a new album or single.
Not sure how all the drama got started in the first place ‘cause Hussein, along with fellow judge Wael Kfoury, gave Nabil’s son a "yes" vote for his audition; while it was judges Carole Samaha and Elissa that disagreed, disabling him from going through to the next round.
Better luck next time, Dude! And better luck fans for trying to create drama that doesn’t exist!
Are the Gulf stars really best buds, or is Nabil just saving face? Let us know your thoughts!
