On a similar note, Nour has taken full responsibility for the poor reviews of his previous drama “Eish Ayamak” (Live your days). Nour said that it was neither the fault of the cast nor the producers.
Nours ex-wife Egyptian actor Poussy has admitted that she is still in love with Nour, during a ceremony honoring the International Alexandria Cinema Festival.
“Nour represents a major part of my life, he was my husband for over thirty years,” said Poussy. She said that she respects and looks up to Nour, and their relationship remains strong despite the divorce.
Poussy said that Nour visits his daughters on a regular basis and she does not intend to restrict his parental visits. She added that her daughters are old enough to understand that their parents divorce does not mean the end of their close relationship with their father.
Nour confirmed that the two have divorced, without giving any clear reasons. He denied the divorce at first to postpone the negative publicity in an effort to protect his daughters, said Nour.
