Per reports, the 24-year-old man, Kahlied, was working at a hotel as a waiter when Joana and her husband of 20 years visited Egypt. While talking with Kahlied, Joana reportedly admitted that she hadn’t slept with her husband for almost a decade. One night when her husband was not at the table, Kahlied came over and convinced her to spend the next day with him in the city. “He was so flirty from the start that I knew he fancied me. We were talking and he made me feel sexy for the first time in years. I began sneaking out in the afternoon to meet him while John was lounging by the pool,” she said. “I wanted to sleep with him from the first day I met him but Hassan said that we’d need a fake marriage certificate first. Egypt is strict about premarital sex so we couldn’t rent a room together without one.”, the then-45-year-old woman reportedly said.
They found a fake marriage certificate and rented an apartment so they could have inter-ourse. “It was incredible, he was so young and keen. It was the best se* of my life – mindblowing after 10 years of no physical contact. I knew then that I had to leave my husband. We’d gone a decade with no physical contact at all. It was no way to live – it was no longer a marriage. It was the end of my trip but Kahlied wanted to see me again so even on the way home I was making plans to return,” Joana said. After getting home, she ended her marriage and confessed to the affair. Joana recounted: “He was furious but he’d suspected something was going on. We didn’t have kids but we had seven dogs together.” For two months, she worked night shifts and sent money to Kahlied to pay for food and bills. “I sent him $400 to help out. I didn’t ask for proof, I trusted that he was telling me the truth,” she said.
When she returned to Egypt, they used their fake marriage certificate, they rented an apartment and spent their days sunbathing and getting inti-ate. Joana said: “We were having se* all the time, we just couldn’t get enough of each other. But after a couple of weeks, Kahlied kept disappearing for days at a time, saying he needed to visit his family.” She claimed that on one occasion, he left her for two days without any money so she had to get work at a nursery to make money quickly. “I’d try to ring him but there’d be no answer. After splitting from my husband I had no savings, the cash I’d brought with me was all I had,” she said.
Growing increasingly suspicious about his disappearances, she asked their neighbors where Kahlied was going. “One [neighbor] said that he thought Kahlied had gone home to have an engagement party as he was due to get married. I was devastated but over text Kahlied insisted it wasn’t true and when he returned after 10 days he denied it,” she said. At the end of August, he asked her to go home for a few weeks. He claimed that the apartment was too expensive and that Joana needed to save more money because he couldn’t support them on his salary. While on the way home, Kahlied had a surprise for her. He admitted that he’d married an Egyptian girl, and called Joana “fat and old.” “I just didn’t understand. He’d told me that he’d loved me, why lie?” she asked.
Despite her experience, Joana went back to Egypt to work as a nursery teacher because she “didn’t have anything” keeping her back home, “I didn’t go out there looking for love. I just love the country and wanted to be back there,” she said. She never heard from Kahlied again after he blocked her on social media. When reached for comment, Kahlied said: “I’m so sorry about the money. It was because I am poor. I don’t want to discuss anything about my relationship.”
