Footballer Achraf Hakimi's Ex-Wife Needed Time To Process 'Complicated' Divorce


Hiba Abouk, the ex-wife of Paris Saint-Germain defender Achraf Hakimi, has shared how she is feeling following her complicated divorce.

Former WAG Abouk, 36, split from the 24-year-old footballer player following his indictment by French prosecutors on a preliminary rape charge back in March. Hakimi "strongly denies" the rape allegations against him, according to his lawyer.

In the French legal system, a preliminary charge mean judges have strong reason to suspect a crime was committed but are allowing time for further investigation before deciding whether to send a case to trial.

Abouk and Hakimi, who hails from Morocco, fircst started dating in 2018 and tied the knot in 2020. The former couple share two children together.

Taking to her Instagram Stories on Thursday, Abouk shared a shot of herself taken during a recent photoshoot and added the song Survivor by Destiny's Child as a soundtrack to her update.

The picture was in conjunction with her recent interview with ELLE Spain, in which Hakimi opened up about how she is feeling since splitting from Hakimi.

She told the publication: "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.

She added: "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."

In March this year, the Spanish-Tunisian actress announced the end of her marriage to her 1.7million followers on Instagram.

She wrote: "The reality is that a while ago, after a lot of reflection, the father of my children and I made the decision to end our relationship, long before the recent media events that have involved me, which are totally external."

Abouk added she did not imagine in addition to facing the "usual pain that comes with a separation," she would also have to confront "this shame" too.

"I needed time to digest this shock," the mum-of-two concluded her statement in March.

Earlier that month, French prosecutors confirmed World Cup star Hakimi, 24, had been placed under judicial supervision on preliminary charge of rape.

A preliminary investigation was opened, but a report said the alleged victim didn’t press charges. Authorities kept the investigation going because of her testimony against Hakimi.

Hakimi's accuser alleges he raped her at his home in Paris while his then-wife was on holiday with their children.

"The accusations are false. He is calm and is making himself available to the authorities," Hakimi's lawyer Fanny Colin said last month.

"The club supports the player, who has firmly denied the accusations and trusts the justice system," Hakimi's employers PSG added in a statement. "Paris St-Germain is an institution that promotes respect on and off the pitch."
