Kuwaiti influencer Rawan Bin Hussain shocked fans when she announced on Wednesday night that she would be divorcing her husband.
The 23-year-old law student revealed the news to her 4.8 million followers on her Instagram stories.
“Today I’m here to explain this without the filter and I’m hoping people, especially Middle Easterners who still follow the worst traditional rules, would understand me,” Hussain said
Hussain, who is known for her beauty blog, has one daughter – luna – with Libyan businessman Youssef Migariaf.
“I am very proud to say I am divorcing my husband. If this will make me ‘Less of a human being’, then that’s totally fine! I am super excited for my new chapter. And I can’t wait to start,” she added.
