Personal life

Haifa Wehbe is a victim of parental alienation. In the 1990s, she married her cousin Nasr Fayyad when she was 18 and traveled with him to Nigeria where he worked. During her pregnancy, she returned to Lebanon and separated from her now ex-husband quoting marital problems. She had a daughter whose name is Zeinab Fayyad who also was a victim of parental alienation until she became an adult and continued to refuse to have any contact with her mother, even after she herself got married to Shaaban Reda Fawaz and had a child. Wehbe’s ex-husband and his mother have not allowed Wehbe any contact with Zainab. In some communities in Lebanon, the father gets automatic full custody of the children.

Wehbe has had no contact with her daughter since Zainab was one or two years old. Understandably, Wehbe tried to deny that she has ever had a daughter, but that was rebutted during her interview with Tony Khalifeh.

In 2005, Wehbe announced her engagement to a Saudi businessman Tariq Al-Jaffali. After only a few weeks, she and her fiancé decided to split for personal reasons and family issues.

On June 25, 2007, Wehbe survived an accident while filming a music video for the song “Hasa Ma Bena” in Lebanon. In the video, a single engine airplane was to chase Wehbe as she drove a car. However, the airplane inadvertently hit the car, taking off the front windshield of the convertible she was driving. Despite the severity of the accident, Wehbe suffered only minor cuts and bruises.

Wehbe married Danish businessman Henrik Abu Larsen on April 24, 2009 in Beirut.[10] Among the guests at the wedding party were singer Anastacia, Kim Kardashian, Diddy, Googoosh, Samar Ibrahim, Nawal Al Zoghbi, Najwa Karam, Ragheb Alama, and Sherine.

It was announced that Wehbe and Abu Husheima had split in November 2012.



» Baddi Aech and television career (2004–2007)
Wehbe released her second studio album Baddi Aech (Arabic: بدي عيش, English: “I Want to Live”) in early 2005, which lived up to expectations due to the success of its lead single “Ya Hayat Albi.” Released after the assassination of Lebanese politician Rafik Hariri, the title single of the album is about “freedom, considered to be among the most basic of human rights”. Her follow-up single became her biggest hit to date, “Aana Haifa” (Arabic: أنا هيفاء, English: “I Am Haifa”), which became her novelty song. In 2006 she released a follow up single “Bus al-Wawa” (Arabic: بوس الواوا, English: “Kiss the booboo”), the song was later used in a Pepsi advertisement. The song was also voted Song of the Year in 2006 by Radio Scope and Sawt Al Musika.

» Film career beginnings and Habibi Aana (2008–2009)
Wehbe starred in the Pepsi-produced film Sea of Stars released in early 2008, along with Carole Samaha, Ahmad el Sherif, Wael Kfoury, Brigitte Yaghi, and Ruwaida al-Mahrooqi.

On July 4, 2008, Wehbe released her third studio album Habibi Aana (Arabic: حبيبي أنا, English: “My Love”) which contains 15 songs including the lead single “Moush Adra Estana”. In the Middle East album sales struggled due to Haifa’s lack of promotion as she was concentrating more on her acting and film career.

In 2009 Wehbe starred in Dokkan Shehata, a high-grossing Egyptian drama film.

» Babe Haifa (2010)
After a lengthy delay, Wehbe released a children’s album titled Babe Haifa in March 2010 under Rotana Records.

Wehbe was scheduled to work on the Egyptian movie Leilet El-Baby Doll, but canceled due to her overbooked schedule.

In April 2010, Wehbe was featured on French DJ David Vendetta’s album Vendetta on the song Yama Layali.
