Syrian songstress Assala Nasri is taking some time off with her two children in Hurghada, Egypt.
Her son Khalid Al-Dhahabi posted a video from their vacation that caused great controversy and received criticism.
The mother and her young son appeared hugging and kissing in a bizarre way, and some social media users stressed that they were both drunk.
In the video, Khalid was heard saying: “people think that she is my girlfriend or my wife or my sister.”
While some believed Assala’s behavior was normal and any mother could treat her son in this way, others considered that their actions were “inappropriate” and should not be displayed to the public.
