Um, my bad! Lebanese model Joelle Hatem announces divorce, then takes it back

We all get mad at our partners from time to time, but Lebanese fashion model Joelle Hatem clearly chose the wrong moment to make a Facebook status.

She and her husband, Lebanese singer George Al Rassi, must have been in a serious tiff when she sat down to share on social media what was going on. She shocked her followers with the big news that she and George had split.

Joelle wrote, "I announce my divorce from George Al Rassi. This is not a lie for me and George cannot be together anymore. I respect him very much and apologize from everyone I need to relax and I cannot answer anyone at this time. I wanted you to know the news from me personally first."

A few hours later, the upset wifey had some time to cool down and retracted her announcement.

She returned to her Facebook account to update fans with this explanation, "I want to tell you from the bottom of my heart and by the life of my son Joe, I truly regret what I had done, it is true that George and I had had a big dispute and he left, but I do not want to get a divorce. I want a happy family and what I said on Facebook was a result of my outrage and anyone who wants to curse me for it do it, and I want to thank everyone who support us and stood by our side."

Word on the street is that Lebanese actress Cyrine Abdel Nour may have had something to do with the separation. It's also rumored that Joelle's dad has refused for her to continue living life with George.

Well, that was awkward.
