Sources have revealed that prominent Egyptian pop-star Amr Diab is secretly seeing a popular cardiologist on a weekly basis. The singer had attempted to keep the matter a secret from the public, but the fact that his car has been vandalized twice in the parking lot of the doctor’s clinic has caused to the secret to be revealed.
Close contacts to Amr have denied that the visit are due to a deterioration in the singer’s heart condition, and stressed that a very close friendship ties Amr to the doctor and the visits are merely social.
Diab is placing the final touches on his upcoming album. He has recorded several songs and will select the best to include on the album, his last under his contract with production company ‘Rotana.’
The singer did not reveal whether he will renew his contract.
Concert agents in Egypt and around the Arab world were shocked when Diab turned down all offers to hold performances during the holy month of Ramadan. The singer had given his initial acceptance to hold some concerts.
Diab explained that he intended to go to Saudi Arabia to perform the religious pilgrimage ‘Umra,’ and that he made the decision at the beginning of the holy month to dedicate the last ten days to prayer.
