Iraqi singer Shatha Hassoun revealed that she ended her
engagement to her fiancé of three years after she discovered he was cheating on
her. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
The day she won first place on the talent show Star Academy was
her fiancé’s wedding to another woman, said Shatha.
“The one thing I cannot forgive is betrayal, it breaks up any
relationship,” she said.
On a different note, Shatha said that one day she intends to
wear a hijab (Islamic female headdress) to complete her religion.
However, the time has yet to come for her to take such a big
step, in part due to her career.
Shatha said that she is careful about following the teachings of
Islam and makes it a central part of her life.
Shatha denied rumors that there are disputes between her and
singers Amal Hijazi, Mariam Fares, Arwa, Yara, Rahma and Claudia Hinna. Shatha
asserts that she has never met any of the said singers.
Her main goal, for the time being, is to make a name for herself
through her career, said Shatha.
