The Iraqi broadcaster, Nizar Al-Fares, raised the controversy after hosting the artist, Menna Arafa, and her husband, Mahmoud Al-Mahdi, to discuss their recent separation crisis due to filming a scene in the series “Villa 101” with the artist Muhammad Najati.
The controversial journalist asked an embarrassing question to the young actress, during the meeting, saying: “You blessed your ex-fiancé, the blogger Ali Ghazlan, for his wedding?”
For his part, Mahmoud Al-Mahdi said, during his meeting with Menna Arafa on the “With Al-Fares” program: “We did not intend to take the trend.
He also continued, “I am of course an oriental man, and I have no objection to her acting, but at the beginning of our relationship we agreed on some red lines.”
The duo had announced their separation earlier, a few days after their marriage, only to return two days later, before her mother again announced her return and the end of the dispute between them, which exposed the duo to a barrage of criticism and accusing them of searching for fame.
It is noteworthy that Nizar Al-Faris is an Iraqi media person known for asking embarrassing and exciting questions at the same time, and he caused a sensation on the communication sites at the beginning of this year after his famous interview with Rania Youssef on New Year’s Day, as the crisis erupted between them after accusing him of falsifying the facts, after He broadcast the interview, in which the Egyptian artist made many controversial statements, and subjected her to a severe attack.
