We don't hear much about Lebanese starlet Layla Iskander in the news, not ever since she was in the spotlight for looking for The One.

That was in 2015 and looks like she's now found Mr. Right.

The Star Academy season one former contestant looks like she's trying to milk her 15 minutes of fame for all she's got, as she bombarded Snapchatters with videos of her defending Saudi Arabia after someone reportedly called all Saudi people "filthy" - and we're telling you, there were a few words she could have done without.

Well, are you surprised? Her hubby actor Yacoub al Farhan is from there, so it would be weird if she didn't show some love for his homeland. She considers herself "one of them now" anyway.

The couple married in secret and kept it that way for two years, before Yacoub finally spoke out about their marriage in an exclusive interview with Laha Magazine.
