Yasmeen Abdul files lawsuit against producer
Egyptian actress Yasmeen Abdul Aziz has filed a lawsuit against producer Waleed Al Tab’ee demanding that she is given the wage she is entitled to, after taking part in his film “Al Hub Al Akheer”. The problem began when after weeks of filming the scenes, Yasmeen had gone to the bank to cash a check that was given to her by Waleed, but was in shock when she realized that the check bounced because he did not have a balance.
Yasmeen kept repeatedly trying to call Waleed but he ignored all her attempts, leading her to withdraw from the film. The actress stressed that despite the fact that the amount is little she will take Waleed to court and make him pay her every penny she earned.
On his part, Waleed filed a complaint to the Actors Association against Yasmeen for her refusal to continue her role in the film. Waleed stressed that Yasmeen’s allegations that he did not pay her is not true and in fact all the cast were paid in full. Waleed added that he has proof that Yasmeen cashed the check and will use it when it is necessary.
Many speculate that the situation between the two had become bad when they were the target of tabloids saying that an affair exists between them. But Waleed stressed that lies in tabloids in not considered an excuse for Yasmeen to behave in the way she did.
