A Cairo civil affairs court announced yesterday November 9 to be the date for the hearing of Egyptian singer Hakim over the divorce case filed by his first wife, lawyer Marwa Shahine.
According to the UAE daily, Al Bayan, Hakim's wife filed for divorce late last month, following her husband's act of betrayal with what 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.
Hakim, who will appear next Saturday before the court in Cairo, had assaulted his wife in a furnished apartment at the upscale neighborhood of Azzamalek, as she walked in on him and his secretary whilst 'in the act', which he later claimed to be his second wife.
Following the incident, witnesses confirmed that the singer went on to beat his wife, Marwa Ibrahim, in front of the neighbors after a squabble broke out between the two.
Marwa told the newspaper that she insists on the divorce even if Hakim apologizes in all magazines and newspapers, "my decision is final and I'm not going to give up any of my legal rights, which might amount to one million pounds in financial compensation," said Marwa. – Albawaba.com
