Pop Star Rejects Lavish Proposal
As one Persian Gulf man found out, even if you have more money than Bill Gates or the U.S. Mint, if the girl still wants her freedom, she’s going to take it. When this unnamed businessman proposed to Lebanese pop star Elissa, he offered her $100 million and an island in Spain with her name on it. Her friends and family tried to convince her to agree, but citing the fact that she valued her freedom more than his package deal, she refused.
There are several underlying issues in this story. Sure, this man was willing to lavish her with gifts, but what was he asking in exchange? Did he want her to give up her music career and retire to Isla de Elissa? Remember that when the time comes for you to propose, although you might be prepared to support your new partner financially, you have to make sure you’re going to be there to support dreams as well.
