Haifa Wehbe dispels Syria concert rumors

Haifa Wehbe
JEDDAH: News that Lebanese pop star Haifa Wehbe will be performing a concert in Damascus, Syria on New Year’s Eve is false, Wehbe’s media office announced on Wednesday.
Wehbe’s media office issued an explanatory statement after bogus news stories started circulating on social media about her holding a concert in Syria, as well as details about the concert and ticket prices.
The statement said: “After the news was circulated on social media platforms, the media office of pop star Haifa Wehbe stresses her deep respect for the people of Syria, and refutes all news stories mentioned above and deems them rumors and false interpretations; no one communicated with her director regarding holding a concert in Damascus, Syria.”
“The only platform through which Wehbe announces her activities and concerts are her official social media accounts or her media office,” the statement concluded.
In April, Wehbe had tweeted prayers for Syria in an image with the caption “No caption needed, pray for #Syria.”
