Yells at organisers as Dh150,000 watch is stolen while she was performing on stage

Thieves have stolen an expensive watch from a well-known UAE actress worth more than Dh150,000 while she was performing on stage in Saudi Arabia, the Saudi Arabic language daily Shams reported on Monday.

Maisa Moghrabi “went out of her way” and began swearing at security women and organizers of her show in Riyadh after the loss of her watch, valued at over SR150,000, the paper said in a report from the Saudi capital.

“Maisa started screaming and swearing at the security women and the organisers of her play after her watch was stolen,” the paper said.

“One of them yelled back at Maisa and reminded her that she has a Filipina secretary, who is supposed to be responsible for her items.”

Another woman involved in organising the play, told Maisa:”You should blame your secretary because we are not your secretaries,” according to the paper.

Maisa’s play  “Banat Fatima” (Fatima’s daughters) at King Fahd Cultural Centre in Riyadh attracted more than 3,000 women on its first day on Friday.

The actress was born in Morocco in 1980 then moved with her family to France before traveling to Saudi Arabia. She then moved to the UAE, where she married a national and obtained the Emirati citizenship.
