Oh Em Gee, did that really happen? These scandals may be oldies, but they're goldies.
Oh, how we love a scandal or two with our morning coffee! And, we can surely count on our trusty Arab celebs to deliver them on cue! In the cray-cray celebosphere, our Arab papzz are always on patrol, never sleeping on the job even on the hottest of summer days. Ready to capture the stars' most cringe-worthy moments and reveal their dirtiest secrets, the Arab media gives as good as the West's most unscrupulous photogs.
Every superstar has to go through the painful ordeal of a public scandal at least once in their career as a right of passage. Arab stars' mishaps may not be as wild, damning or lewd as those of celebs' in the West, for example Miley Cyrus’ recent disturbing display of on-stage ‘twerking’, but they're still enough to leave critics condemning and fans in a flap.
Naturally, the most intriguing scandals are those of a sexual nature. In the past, we've had a few juicy sex-shockers, such as leaked naked pix of Muna Zaki at the spa and Tomy Omran’s nearly-nude-pose on the cover of a Greek magazine that upset the self-righteous Saudis big time!
While french kissing and getting jiggy on the silver-screen was part of the norm in Egyptian cinema in the black & white era, our Arab denizens won't have any of that nowadays. The West may be shaken to the core by outrageous MTV VMA makeouts between female celebs Madonna, Britney Spears, and Christina Aguilera, but we can still be just as shocked by our region’s superstars’ public displays of marital snogging!
They might not be 'twerking' in latex underwear, a la Miley Cyrus , but for your eyes only, we've rounded up the biggest, the baddest and most bawdy scandals of the past few years in the celeb land of Araby!
