Nancy Ajram denies grim rumors of a car accident in the US
While Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram is on a month-long tour around the United States, a rumor began circulating that the singer was involved in a car accident that placed Nancy in a coma and led to her mother’s death, who is accompanying her on the tour. Several Lebanese broadcasting channels verified the rumor, prompting Nancy to make a public statement from the US denying the rumor.
According to the Saudi based daily, Al Riyadh, Nancy assured that she and her mother are in perfect condition and had not been involved in an accident, and described the rumor as “stupid.”
Another grim rumor was circulating in Egypt, accusing Nancy of making blasphemous remarks about Islam. The rumor claims that Nancy, while filming an interview with journalist Mahmoud Saed, began cursing the Islamic religion.
Upon Nancy’s remarks Mahmoud exploded in anger and threw his juice in her face, refusing to continue the interview, or so the story goes.
Nancy denied making any blasphemous remarks against Islam and expressed anger that such a rumor was created. She stated that she highly respects the Islamic religion, and would never make any inappropriate comments in relation to it.
Mahmoud also denied such an incident occurred and stated the last interview he held with Nancy was three weeks ago, and nothing of the like happened. “Such a rumor is a sick attempt to destroy Nancy’s career,” he added.
Nancy is on tour around the US and Canada alongside prominent Iraqi singer Kathem El Saher. The same agent who organized the successful tour of Lebanese singers Nawal Al Zoughbi and Fadel Shaker sponsored the tour.
The tour was launched on May 13 in Miami, Florida and will end on July 11 in Boston, Massachusetts. Nancy will hold eight concerts, and Kathem will perform six.
Nancy will be celebrating her birthday while on tour in in the US.
