Bahraini King falls for singer’s charm

The eight-hour performance of the Lebanese singer in the Bahraini king’s palace ended with a scandal.

A few days ago the Lebanese famous pop princess Haifa Wahbi has received an invitation for performance in several Gulf countries including Qatar and Bahrain. Eyebrows were raised across the Gulf countries this week after rumors surfaced that Prime Minister Sheikh Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani bought Haifa a luxurious $1 million beach villa.

There were many speculations around this generosity of the Qatari prime minister.

It was reported that the 8-hour performance of Haifa Wahbi for the Bahraini King has ended with some troubles. The stunning beauty of this young singer was so irresistible that it pushed the King to touch her body during the performance that night. The young Lebanese singer has pushed the king feeling offended and being abused. It was only a matter of few moments when his bodyguards rushed in giving her some slaps for her reaction.

The King is said has given Haifa a gold map of Bahrain worth $2 million and an invitation for a two week holiday on his royal yacht as a hush money. However, her lawyer promised to sue this action of the Bahraini King Hamad and his bodyguards.

The Qatari PM is said to have taken a break from his political duties to write out a cheque for the star after hearing that she intends to sue the Bahraini King.

The question remains is this huge amount of money just an Arab generosity or a Hush Money?

A few years ago, the puppet Bahraini parliament had asked for a ban of Haifa Wehbe (as her name is also spelled in the Latin alphabet) performing, as they considered her clothes were “immodest”.
