Spanish actress Hiba Abouk and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) footballer Achraf Hakimi's relationship has come to an end, following allegations of rape against the Moroccan international. The news was reported by Spanish news outlet Marca, with reference to El Cierre Digital.
The End of a Marriage
According to various Spanish media outlets, Abouk has initiated divorce proceedings, as the couple's relationship had been in turmoil for some time, with differing life visions contributing to the crisis.
The allegations of rape against Hakimi are reported to have been the final straw.
Investigation into Rape Allegations
French prosecutors have opened an investigation into the alleged rape of the PSG right-back, after a 24-year-old woman accused the Moroccan international of raping her at his home in the suburbs of Paris on February 25.
The woman and Hakimi had started corresponding on Instagram in mid-January and on the said date, she visited the player's house in Boulogne, where the alleged incident took place. The woman reported the incident to the police, but no charges were filed.
However, the prosecution took over the case after the woman allegedly refused to press charges. The woman claimed that Hakimi kissed her on the mouth, lifted her clothes, kissed her breasts despite her protests, and then penetrated her without her consent.
"The accusations against him are false. He is calm and is at the disposal of justice," stated Hakimi's lawyer, Fanny Colin, to French news outlet Le Parisien.
A Delicate Period
Hakimi was a part of the Moroccan national team that finished fourth at the World Cup in Qatar.
During the weekend of the alleged incident, he was reportedly at home alone, as his wife Hiba and their two children were on vacation in Dubai. The Moroccan player moved from Inter to PSG two years ago for 71 million euros.
Hakimi is married to a Spanish actress of Libyan origin and has two sons. He is considered to be a very pious football player, but is currently going through a challenging period in his personal life.
