The Arab sex symbol from Lebanon: Haifa Wehbe - رمز الجنس العربي من لبنان : هيفاء وهبي

Haifa Wehbe (Arabic: هيفاء وهبي‎ born March 10, 1974) is a Lebanese model, actress, and singer who rose to fame in the Arab world as runner up for Miss Lebanon and later through the release of her debut album Houwa El-Zaman (هو الزمن It is Time).

Biography: Haifa Wehbe was born in Mahrouna, a small Shiite farming town in Southern Lebanon. She grew up listening to jazz and R&B. She began to work as a model at a young age and won the title of Miss South Lebanon at the age of sixteen.[3] Wehbe won an ancillary title at the Miss Lebanon competition, which she had to relinquish when it was discovered that she had already been married, disqualifying her. She also made a name for herself when she starred in a music video clip for the singer George Wassouf. By 1996, she had appeared on over a hundred magazine covers. In 2006, Wehbe was listed on People Magazine's list of the 50 most beautiful people.

Personal life: Haifa is a Shiite Muslim, she has three sisters. Wehbe's brother died at the age of 24 during the 1982 Israeli invasion of Lebanon.

During Wehbe's marriage, she gave birth to a daughter named Zeinab Zaza.

In 2005, she announced her engagement to a Saudi businessman Tariq Al-Jaffali. After only a few weeks, she and her fiancé decided to split for personal reasons and family issues.

On June 25, 2007, Wehbe survived a serious car accident while filming a music video for the song "Hasa Ma Bena" in Lebanon. In the video, a single engine airplane was to chase Wehbe as she drove a car. However, the airplane inadvertently hit the car, taking off the front windshield of the drop-top convertible she was driving. Despite the severity of the accident, Wehbe only suffered minor cuts and bruises.

Wehbe married Egyptian businessman Ahmad Abu Husheima on April 24, 2009 in Beirut. Among the guests at the wedding party were singer Anastacia, Nawal Al Zoughbi, Najwa Karam, Ragheb Alama, Ahlam, and Sherine.
