Ragheb Alama causes a panic at Toronto airport
Upon his arrival to Toronto airport in Canada, Lebanese singer Ragheb Alama and his crew had taken extra precautions before getting off the plane and were wearing masks on their faces to protect themselves from the deadly SARS virus. Airport security began to worry that the scene may cause a panic outbreak at the airport.
According to the London based Laha magazine, security assured Ragheb and his crew that there is no need for their extra precautions and that SARS has been properly contained. They then were requested to take off their masks and not to worry about the spread of the virus. The singer is on tour in Canada where he will hold several concerts in different areas to the Arab population residing there.
Alama previously denied circulating rumors that he has separated from his wife Jihan. The singer also denied the existence of any form of dispute between them, saying that they are enjoying a happy marriage. Recent rumors had it that the couple had a huge fight and that Jihan left Ragheb for good. The dispute was over the fact that Jihan found out that Ragheb is involved in an affair with another woman and realized she could not bare such a thing. Ragheb strongly denied having any form of a relationship with another woman stressing the fact that he would never cheat on his wife.
Alama has very recently returned to his singing career, after he had taken some time off after undergoing surgery and surviving a car accident. After the two incidents, the singer had felt that it he was in desperate need of time off to relax and regain his strength. Ragheb's first big event was during the Egyptian spring festival Sham Al Nasim, where the singer held a live concert in celebration of the big event. –Albawaba.com
