Egyptian actor Hannan Turk is not ready to divorce her husband Khaled Khatab, yet.
Khaled said that he and his wife are separated due to personal problems, but asserted he did not and will never divorce her. Hannan's recent disappearance from the spotlight fueled rumors that the two had split for good.
Hannan said that problems between her and Khaled over personal matters, which she did not disclose, led to the separation.
The couple faced many problems during their ten year marriage, but never divorced since they have two children, Yousef and Adam.
Hannan asserted that her decision to wear a Hijab, an Islamic headdress, is not the main reason for her marital problems, and her mother-in-law even encouraged it.
Turk denied rumors that she intends to stop wearing a Hijab, and expressed her anger over the rumors, describing them as ‘lies.”
Hannan said that throughout her life she has learned the most important thing is her devotion to religion and to God, and since she made the decision to wear a Hijab she has been repeatedly attacked by rumors. People have even tried to persuade her to change her mind, said Hannan.
Other rumors claim that Hannan was forced to remove her Hijab in order to shoot the remaining scenes of her upcoming film. Hannan said she is not concerned with the rumors surrounding her Hijab, asserting that there is nothing that would make her remove it in public.
