Egyptian belly dancer Dina was left with egg on her face this week after she was turned away from the star studded wedding of soccer player Yasser Hosni. 

The controversial star had been offered 20,000 Egyptian pounds to perform at the wedding, but when she arrived at the venue on the big day the father of the groom stepped in and turned her away. He is reported to have told a bewildered Dina: “My son’s wedding will not have any ridiculous dancing, for it is a sin and I and many of my guests are members of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Never one to back down from a fight, the feisty dancer demanded full payment.

Unsurprisingly, Yasser was unwilling to foot the whole bill for Dina's non-performance, but he did agree to give her half the amount - not bad for a day of no work!
