The Lebanese dancer Elissar revealed that she had attempted suicide earlier, pointing out that she took a full medicine box and stayed 3 days in hospital for treatment.
“I arrived at a time when I felt the world blackened and I wanted to relax, and I said, God forgive me, because I want to end my life,” Elissar added during her interview on “Show the Story” program.
She continued: “I don’t just think, but I took a medicine box and tried to commit suicide, and I stayed 3 days in the hospital and did not remember anything, and all those around me blamed me and did not know the reason I did that for that.”
She also explained the reasons for her not thinking about marriage. Saying: “Sometimes marriage is a nightmare, on my mind many times I work as a family, but I see that I think of my son or daughter, I do not want him to be his firstborn in school and say him, O son of the dancer or O girl of the dancer.”
She continued: “The Egyptian actress, Zizi Mustafa, said in an interview that I heard that she retired from dancing because the children at school told her son, the famous artist, Menna Shalaby, O girl of the dancing, and this point does not leave my mind.”
