(BEIRUT, LEBANON) — U.S.-born Lebanese model Joelle Hatem seems to have acted on impulse when she took to Facebook to announce a divorce from her husband, singer George Al Rassi.
Hatem, 36, shocked her 60,000 Facebook fans when she 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.
Jordanian news site Al Bawaba reports that Lebanese singer Cyrine Abdel Nour may have had something to do with the separation.
But a few hours later, Hatem returned to Facebook with a change of heart. She wrote:
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.
It was unclear whether the couple will reconcile or continue with the separation. They had their first baby in October of last year.
