Ragheb Alama sure loves his mum, but his fans aren't feeling so warm & fuzzy about his Paris vacay
Ragheb Alama wrote a special message to his mum in celebration of Mother's Day to show her how much he loves and appreciate her. Ragheb took to Twitter to say, "To my mother Hajjah Wafeeqa, Happy Mother's Day to the greatest woman. The true meaning of motherhood and sacrifice that lives in every cell and truly heaven is under your feet mother."
According to Laha magazine, the superstar got even more vulnerable by adding, "I remember when I was young you were praying one night asking God to see me a man with tears in your eyes that are full of affection. I loved sleeping in your lap for it is the place where I felt safe. I could never forget those moments and those kind eyes."
It is known that Ragheb is very close to his matriarch. No matter how old he is, his mother still treats him as her little boy.
The songster didn't get the same level of love from fans after his recent Paris trip, that's for sure. The Arab Idol judge posted pics from his short excursion to the most romantic city on earth, splashing up scenes of his Parisian pad and sipping a cup of the country's joe in a cafe.
According to Sayidaty.net, the two photos that Ragheb shared received strong criticism by some people, stating that celebrities like to splurge and show off the good life they are living, wondering how Ragheb can post photos of a leisure trip at a time that the Arab world is filled with so much bloodshed and agony. People accused the singer of being insensitive and uncaring.
Other people got Ragheb's back by saying that if celebrities waited until conditions are stable in the region to go on a vacation, they would never leave their homes, implying that he has a right to take time off from his daily routines.
Fans of Ragheb's famous rivalry UAE singer Ahlam, accused Ragheb of imitating their favorite singer, who had recently gone on a vacation to Paris and posted photos of her trip.
