Saida Mouh, the mother of Morocco and Paris Saint-Germain defender, Achraf Hakimi, has reacted to reports that her 24-year-old son’s fortune was transferred into her name.
Mouh said she was not aware of any arrangement, according to Morocco World News.
The social media was agog last weekend as Hakimi’s wife Hiba Abouk, following their formal separation, discovered that she could not claim half of her ex-husband’s assets because they are in his mother’s name.
While the issue has attracted mixed reactions across the globe, Hakimi’s mother, Mouh broke the silence on Wednesday, as she told Moroccan media that her son did not inform her of such a transfer.
Mouh said: “If he has taken any action to protect himself, I’m unaware of it. What’s the problem if the news is true? If my son does not do this, he will not be able to get rid of that woman [Hiba Abouk].”
According to recent reports, Abouk will not get any assets from Hakimi’s fortune because everything is registered under the Moroccan footballer’s mother’s name.
Spanish news outlet Marca reported last Friday, that Abouk was requesting half of Hakimi’s property and wealth but she discovered that he has nothing to his name.
According to the same source, Hakimi’s mother has been receiving his wages in her bank account for some time, and she is the sole beneficiary of his income and wealth.
Reacting to the reports, Hiba Abouk in a statement said: “Remember, you can’t control everything in life, but you can control how you react to it. Let go of the need for perfection, embrace the beauty of the present moment and trust that the universe has your back.”
Abouk is a famed personality in her own right. Hence, her request for half of Hakimi’s fortune could have been the subject of debate itself as there are doubts over whether she needs any financial support.
The Moroccan international and the Spanish-Tunisian actress Hiba Abouk divorced last month.
Hakimi and Abouk first met in 2018 when Hakimi played for Borussia Dortmund.
Abouk, a successful actress who is 12 years older than the PSG ace, was born in Madrid and is of Libyan and Tunisian descent.
The couple tied the knot in 2020 and have two sons, Amin and Naim, born in 2020 and 2022.
Abouk and the PSG right-back made the decision to separate before the latter was alleged to have sexually assaulted a 24-year-old woman in February.
Reasons for their prior separation have not yet been made public, but Hakimi’s sexual assault saga seems to have added fuel to the fire.
Following the accusations, Abouk publicly supported her husband, stating via her Instagram that all the accusations made against him were not true.
Abouk also stated that the pain of her divorce proceedings has been compounded due to a project not taking off as it should have.
She signed off by stating that she has belief in the legal process and that she will always side with victims in such cases.
