From one star to another: Chloe Morello impersonates Haifa Wehbe

  • Chloe Morello is one of the most followed beauty influencers today
  • She was singing “Boos Elwawa”

DUBAI: Australian social media star Chloe Morello pulled a Haifa Wehbe on Twitter, singing a few lines from the Arabic star’s famous song, “Boos Elwawa.”

Morello, who is one of the most followed beauty influencers today, posted a seven-second video selfie of her with the caption: “I’m totally Haifa, right?”

As of writing, the short video has gained almost 3,000 views.

Fans quickly praised Morello’s imitation of Wehbe, with one user saying: “Omg, you made my day when you started singing in Arabic!”

But some die-hard Haifa Webhe fans were less than impressed and called for the social media star to leave singing and Arabic to the pros.

Weinstein reaches deal to settle civil proceedings for $44 million: report

  • The deal, which has not yet been signed, aims to cover all civil proceedings filed against the fallen Hollywood mogul
  • The settlement does not exempt Weinstein from the criminal proceedings brought against him for sexual assault

NEW YORK: Disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has reached a provisional $44 million settlement with alleged victims and creditors, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.
The deal, which has not yet been signed, aims to cover all civil proceedings filed against the fallen Hollywood mogul, including those in Canada and the United Kingdom.
Weinstein’s spokesperson denied to comment.
The settlement does not exempt Weinstein from the criminal proceedings brought against him for sexual assault, for which he will go on trial in September.
Weinstein — a catalyst for the #MeToo anti-harassment movement — has been charged over the alleged assaults of two women and faces life in prison if he is convicted at the trial, which could last five weeks.
In addition to the alleged victims and creditors, the settlement covers the proceedings started by former New York state attorney general Eric Schneiderman, who has been succeeded by Letitia James.
The proceedings aim specifically to guarantee the alleged victims will be compensated.
James’s spokesperson also declined to comment.
The settlement amount will be paid out by insurance agencies, the Journal reported, several of which count The Weinstein Company, the production company Weinstein co-founded, among their clients.
Since October 2017, Weinstein — one of the most powerful men in Hollywood before a cascade of sexual misconduct allegations precipitated his downfall — has been accused of sexual harassment and assault by more than 80 women.
Among his accusers are prominent actresses such as Ashley Judd, Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek.
