A Cairo civil court has recently witnessed the divorce of Egyptian singer Hakim and his second wife, Jihan. A lawsuit was filed by Jihan accusing Hakim of beating her and marrying another woman in secrecy, a matter which made the court grant her all her legal rights.
According has to the London based, Elaph, Hakim had failed to attend a previous hearing that was held and evidence was given regarding his misconduct, making the court rule against him. The court realized that a divorce should be granted to Jihan since her marital status with Hakim was close to non-existence.
Hakim recently was gifted with a baby from Jihan in mid-September. The singer has expressed he joy at being a father for a third child and had the recording of his upcoming album in order be around his new baby.
Previously, a Cairo court verdict has sentenced Hakim to pay for his children’s yearly school tuition and a monthly child support and alimony of 5 thousand Egyptian pounds. The court order came after Marwa Ibrahim, Hakim’s first wife, filed a lawsuit demanding that the singer pay support for her and his children and stating that he has been escaping from paying one dime since their separation, and after a long cycle of fighting and lawsuits, Egyptian singer Hakim and Marwa had decided to call it a truce and drop all charges they had against one another. The couple felt that their ongoing disputes have negatively affected their two children and so decided the only solution was to drop charges putting an end to all the commotion.
Despite the fact that Marwa had agreed to drop the charges she had against Hakim, one lawsuit remained which she refused to overlook. Marwa felt that she could not go back on her previous decision for a divorce. Her mind was made up and she could not continue with Hakim under any circumstance.
Marwa made it clear to the court that she has never left her home or children and the fact was that Hakim has deserted her and their family to live with his second wife. She added that the singer does not even answer or return the calls made to him by his two children, in addition to his refusal to pay alimony and child support.
Hakim's wife filed for the divorce in November last year, following her husband's act of betrayal with his so-called second wife. Marwa expressed resentment to her husband's 'unbearable' acts, which started a year ago with his frequent absence from home. "He used to leave us behind with no money, he showed no attention or care to me or his two kids," explained Marwa. – Albawaba.com
