Nancy Ajram denies insulting Syrians
In response to circulating rumors that she publicly insulted Syrians and refusing to hold any concerts in Syria, which created uproar to break among citizens against her; Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram held a press conference to clear her name and justify her position.
At the Sheraton Damascus hotel and amidst crowds of journalists, Nancy stressed that she is always attacked with rumors and never bothers to comment on them and simply works extra hard to present music of the highest standards, but this case is different because the rumors have accused her of insulting a dear Arab nation and its people, a matter she would never think of doing.
According to the London based daily, Dar Al Hayat, Nancy defied anyone who will come up to her and accuse her face to face of making insulting comments against Syrians, and hopes that people in Syria realize that some sick individuals are out trying to create problems and ruin her image.
The singer added that she heard of the rumor like everyone else, and could not understand where it came from, and that she had made her remarks on a television or radio interview and during the interview had gotten into a conflict with Syrian born singer George Wassouf.
Nancy wished that George would back her up and confirm that she never made such remarks. She added that this rumor was created to ruin her scheduled performance in Syria, but nothing can come between her and the people of a nation who she considers are so close to her heart.
On a similar note, Ajram has been confronted by several rumors that have threatened to tarnish the ‘innocent girl’ image she had worked so hard to create.
For months Nancy has stressed that she cannot understand the motives of the people who create such lies.
A recent series of rumors concerns Nancy's intimate relationship with Saudi Tycoon Tareq Al Jafali, Haifa Wahbi's ex-finance. Rumors claim that Tareq had offered to buy Nancy a mansion in Beirut, and has asked for her hand in marriage.
Nancy was shocked by the rumor and said that she has never even met Tareq in person.
The singer said she is confident that her fans do not believe any of the lies that are being spread, and have faith in her.
