The news site added at the bottom that it could not confirm the news of Wehbe’s infection and that it wishes her a speedy recovery regardless.

Wehbe lashed out at the site, tweeting: “Can you name the hospital? I want to visit it and tell them that a story was published quoting social media users!! And the newspaper is confused if it is rumored!!”

“Since it was not possible for the agency to confirm the authenticity of the news, I ask you not to publish it and so the news doesn’t become fake news, the text of which is a lie that might harm her mother, and break her sister’s heart,” she continued, adding that “the most important thing you will have contributed to something useful! Thank you.”

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West ‘seem much happier’ after family trip 

DUBAI: US rapper Kanye West and his wife, reality TV star Kim Kardashian, returned from their private family vacation in the Dominican Republic this week and they “both seem much happier,” People magazine reported. 

The celebrity couple took the trip last week to try to save their marriage. 

Problems between the parents-of-four started after the 43-year-old rapper announced he was running for the US presidency in 2020. Following a series of Twitter rants last month, the singer revealed he has been trying to divorce his wife.

A source close to the couple told the publication: “They had a good family week in the Dominican Republic. They are continuing the family vacation in Colorado. Kim and Kanye are getting along. They both seem much happier.”

On Friday, West shared a heart-warming video on Twitter of himself dancing with his eldest daughter North during their trip.
