More drama for Tamer: Married life gets in the way of defending Islam
Tamer Hosny's controversial marriage sparked another social networking stir this week after the star refused to take part in Islam's musical answer to the blasphemous 'Innocence of Muslims' film because of commitments to his Moroccan lover Basma Bosil.
Tamer said he wouldn't have time to join the religious opera which will punch back at the anti-Islam film that caused riots across the Arab world last week. It seems his husbandly duties to Basma leave him little time for other projects,
Twitter and Facebook users have bitten back at the star, claiming that he is happy to make the time to appear on chatshows to brag about his charitable donations but not to put his mouth where his money is by performing in the opera.
The eagle-eyed fans also pointed out that Tamer managed to find the time to attend a recent star-studded bash with his new wife. The couple were spotted at one of Cairo's most exclusive hotels celebrating the birthday of Egyptian actor Majed Al Masri's son.
And, as if thing's couldn't get worse, Tamer's fellow celebs have added fuel to the fire by agreeing to take part in the opera without a fee. Popular singers Midhat Saleh, Ehab Tawfiq and Hussein Al Jasmi are just a few of the names who have already signed up, throwing more egg on Tamer's face.
What do you think - should Tamer have agreed to take part in the opera or are people being to hard on the newly-wed?
