Suzan Tamim's songs banned from TV and radio stations
A court notice has been sent to all Arab local and satellite television and radio stations requesting them not to air any songs for Lebanese singer Suzan Tamim. No station is to broadcast any of Tamim's song due to a contract previously signed by the singer and her former production company that is run by her ex-husband Adel Ma'touk.
According to the London based Elaph, the contract clearly states that unless the production gives right and permission, no station is to air or broadcast any of Suzan's songs. It was added that for the time being the company has made a court order banning any songs for Suzan to go on air.
Countless efforts made by close contacts to make amends between Suzan and her ex-husband, but they have proven to be of no use as the two refuse to call a truce and solve their differences. Ma'touk recently released a court order against Suzan forbidding her from leaving Lebanon and demands that everyone who attempts to interfere be prosecuted.
Problems have taken over the couple's lives for the past four years when Suzan decided to break her contract that was previously signed with her husband's record production company. The marital situation led Suzan to leave Lebanon and find residence in Paris. Lawyers have been trying to convince Suzan to agree to the conditions set forth by her husband in order to get the divorce, but she has been refusing ever since her separation.
After three long years of living abroad and away from Lebanon, Suzan received word that her husband agreed to divorce her but under a number of conditions mostly which concern money, and added that she may return to Lebanon to finalize the divorce.
Upon her arrival, Suzan was shocked that her husband changed his mind and filed a complaint against her at an Islamic court accusing her of leaving her home and demanded she return. He also filed a second complaint to a civil court blaming her family for playing with her mind and convincing her to leave him making up lies about him.
The singer at this point went to an Islamic scholar and explained to him her marital situation in which he told her that according to the Islamic religion she is a divorced woman especially since the couple have been separated and no bond has occurred between them.. Her husband refused to accept the scholars ruling and said he would not grant her the divorce unless a court decides on it. –Albawaba.com
