Shireen breaks off second engagement

Published October 3rd, 2006 - 06:37 GMT

Egyptian singer Shireen Abdul Wahab has verified that circulating rumors of her break up with second finance, Egyptian-Libyan businessman Ahmad Ghazali are true.


The two had only been engaged for a few weeks, and the singer stressed that things were not working out between them and so she preferred to break it off with Ahmad now rather than wait and get more involved in a relationship that would have led to no where.


According to the London based Elaph, at the premier screening of the film “Halim” Ahmad announced that he and Shireen had officially gotten engaged.

“We are both wearing our engagement rings, but have yet to decide on a wedding date,” said Ahmad.

Just three weeks before that, at the premier of the film “Imarit Ya’qoubain” (Ya’qoubain’s Building) Shireen said that her public appearances with Ahmad, of Egyptian origin, did not mean they were engaged. Shireen said they were still not sure if they wanted to take their relationship to the next level.

Ahmad said that he did not wish to provide further details about their relationship. He asserted that he has nothing to do with the music industry, but rather he is a businessman who does not like to be placed in the spotlight.  He has avoided making public appearances with his Shireen thus far, unlike her ex-fiancé who was seen often.


Shireen waited for the right time to publicly announce her engagement, wanting to be sure of her decision first, after making premature announcements about past relationships.
