(KUWAIT CITY) — A report published by a Kuwaiti-based newspaper revealed that a Kuwaiti man was referred to police after “trying to molest” Lebanese singer Najwa Karam upon arriving at the Kuwait International Airport.
“A security source said several youths gathered around the renowned singer and one of them behaved indecently, so the bodyguard of the singer confronted him,” said Arab Times, the first English-language newspaper published in Kuwait.
The Kuwaiti was referred to Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh law enforcement after allegedly trying to molest the popular singer, according to Kuwaiti newspaper, Al Rai.
Media reports add that the Kuwaiti was released from custody after signing a “pledge.”
Karam, 49, is a Lebanese multi-platinum, best-selling recording artist in the Middle East, who has sold over 60 million records worldwide.
The report comes a few months after Karam lashed out at an audience member in Sydney, Australia after reportedly getting harassed halfway during her show.
“Money does not buy us nor does it buy you, and shame on you for what you are doing,” she told the unidentified man.
Karam has yet to comment on this latest incident.
