Abouk stated that she is calm about the situation, despite the charges against Hakimi. She also disclosed that the couple had decided to divorce due to the allegations.

In an interview with ELLE, Abouk said, “I am fine. There are days when it is like this, and others in which you’ve to know how to take blows and make decisions, sometimes complicated, and get used to new situations. Who would’ve imagined that in addition to facing the usual pain that a separation entails and accepting the grief that the failure of a family project to which I had given myself body and soul entails, I would’ve to face this ignominy. I needed time to digest this shock.”

Abouk continued, “When you separate, you restructure your life, but it’s not anything special either: you’ve to take iron out of the matter. It’s true that, with two children, it is emotionally complicated, but I’m not the first and I will not be the last. The important thing is that I have the peace of mind of having tried and having done everything I had to do. There are decisions that cannot be made overnight. For me, it’s a premise not to rush in moments of crisis.”

However, there have been reports that the settlement could be challenging, as Hakimi has reportedly registered a significant portion of his wealth in his mother’s name. Abouk and Hakimi have two children together, Amín, 3, and Naim, 1. The couple married in 2020, two years after meeting in 2018.

The situation is undoubtedly a difficult one for Abouk and her children, and it remains to be seen how the divorce settlement will ultimately be resolved. However, Abouk’s calm and measured response is admirable, and it’s clear that she is prioritizing her emotional wellbeing and that of her children during this challenging time.
