The Lebanese artist Dolly Shaheen filed documents in a family court in Alexandria, Egypt, declaring herself officially Muslim.
The documents will be used in her divorce case against her husband Lebanese businessman Sami Salim Qalib, who is a Maronite Christian.
Dolly said that when she married Sami she was still a Catholic, but now that she is a Muslim the marriage is forbidden.
Dolly tried to file for divorce several times, but Sami refused.
Dolly’s family and friends tried to intervene, but Dolly is determined to get divorced.
