Lebanese singer Haifa Wahbi is shocked by the disparaging comments made publicly by her younger sister Rola.
Haifa stated, “I cannot understand how a sister can say such mean things about her sister,” fearing it could ruin their relationship, attributing her ruthless campaign to jealousy.
Rola commented to a number of Arabic magazines that she deeply regrets being the younger sister of Haifa, asserting that Haifa abused her physically and verbally as a child, forcing her to file police reports on several occasions.
Rola also claims that Haifa is an extremely jealous person, especially of her peers like Nancy Ajram, Alissa, and Rula Saed, and forbids her family from watching or listening to their music.
Haifa continues to claim Rola is mentally unstable and is under psychiatric care. Haifa said she is disappointed over their relationship, and despite Rola’s comments she hopes her sister recovers from her illness.
On a different note, circulating rumors claim Haifa's ex-fiancé, Saudi tycoon Tareq Al Jafali is dating singer Nancy Ajram.
He has offered to buy her a luxurious villa in Beirut, stressing that it is nothing compared to what he will offer her if she accepts his hand in marriage, rumors claim.
Nancy is concerned that her new relationship will create tension between her and Haifa.
