Haifa Wehbe Life Story
Haifa Wehbe was born in a small farming town near Southern Lebanon. She grew up listening to jazz and R&B, which some epitomize as 'culture clash'. She became a model at a very young age and won the title of "Miss South Lebanon" at age sixteen. Her next distinction came in 1995 when she was runner up for Miss Lebanon. It was shortly discovered that she was married and had a daughter named Zeinab (Zaza) and her title of runner up was thus revoked. By 1996, she had recovered from the scandal and continued to model. She was seen on over 100 magazine covers.
In 2006, she was on People Magazine's 50 most beautiful people list. From this, she spring-boarded to become the first artist in the Arab world to perform with rapper 50 Cent when she performed as an opening act for his first concert in Lebanon, at BIEL in Beirut. Haifa remains popular among Lebanon's youth and makes countless television appearances. In July 2005, Haifa, along with 14 other celebrities from the Arab world, began airing the live pan-Arab reality show series "El Wadi", based on the French reality show "La Ferme Célébrités".
