The latest rumor circulating in Egypt is that Jamal Mubarak, son of ousted Egyptian President Husni Mubarak, was secretly married to actress Shireen Rida, who is prominent Egyptian singer Amro Diab’s ex-wife and mother of his daughter Nour. Rumors had it that the secret marriage of Jamal and Shireen had lasted for seven years.
It was stated that the secret marriage took place in 1998 and ended in 2005. The marriage was known to a small number of people and was a topic forbidden to talk about due to the power Jamal practiced during his father’s regime.
The marriage had ended by the intervention of ousted First Lady Suzan Mubarak, Jamal’s mother. Suzan had ordered Jamal to end the marriage and begin concentrating on his duties to be able to take over his father’s place as President of Egypt.
