    Wow, scandals like this dont come around often. The Billionaire politician, the Pop idol winner, the hitman, secret trash heaven! Another decent role for J-Lo? Im gripped.

    Read it & weep......

    An Egyptian billionaire has been charged with hiring
    a hitman to kill the winner of Lebanon's equivalent
    of American Idol, in a case that has rocked the Arab world.

    Suzanne Tamim enjoyed a meteoric rise to pop fame
    after winning the reality show in Lebanon.
    But on July 28 the star's body was found with her
    throat slit in her luxury apartment block in Dubai.

    The man accused of ordering her death is one of
    Egypt's most prominent and most successful
    tycoons, Heshaam Talaat Moustafa.

    The alleged killer was a former police officer who
    stalked Tamim from London to Dubai before killing
    her, say authorities.

    They claim the hitman entered the singer's
    apartment pretending to bring a letter from her
    landlord. "He then laid into her with the
    knife," read the official indictment, "cutting her
    main arteries and her trachea".

    Moustafa is charged with paying the alleged killer
    two million dollars to carry out the killing.

    The Egyptian is an MP with the ruling National
    Democratic Party, led by President Hosni
    Mubarak - but that is not helping him now. The
    upper house of the parliament has stripped him
    of his legal immunity as a lawmaker

    The indictment says little about a possible
    motive, mentioning only that the killing was an
    act of revenge. Arab papers have speculated that
    the singer had been romantically involved with
    Moustafa, a married father-of-three.

    Lebanese pop music is enormously popular across
    the Arab world. Tamim had been one of its biggest

    The story is causing a sensation in the region,
    but in Egypt was subject to a reporting ban last
    month, only lifted in time to reveal the identity
    of the pair allegedly behind Tamim's killing.

    To remember Suzanne at her best go to You tube.
