“Fake news!” – Report refutes claim that footballer Hakimi’s wife demanded half of his assets but they were in his mother’s name



The reports alleging that Hiba Abouk, the Spanish wife of Moroccan footballer Achraf Hakimi, demanded half of his assets but everything was registered under his mother’s name, have been debunked as false.

Several weeks ago, the internet was abuzz with news that Hiba would be left without any financial resources following her divorce from the 24-year-old footballer Achraf Hakimi, as he allegedly had no assets in his name.


The African Report has provided a recent update stating that the aforementioned report is completely false and lacks any basis in reality. They highlight how this situation perfectly aligns with the findings of a 2018 MIT study, which revealed that fake news propagates at a faster pace compared to genuine information.

Hakimi’s mother had previously expressed her surprise regarding the story, as she was unaware that her son had supposedly transferred all his properties into her name, as claimed online.

Rym Bousmid, an investigative journalist who delved into the rumor to uncover its origins, has ultimately concluded that there is no truth to it whatsoever.

“It started with a tweet published by the Ivorian journal First Mag. This online media platform is a regular offender when it comes to the dissemination of fake news, and seems to focus more on comedy than journalism,” Rym wrote in The African Report.

Gilles Verdez, a French journalist and sports reporter, joined the chorus of voices opposing the claims and vehemently labeled them as “fake news.” 

He emphasized that it is impossible for Hakimi to transfer his property into his mother’s name, debunking the allegations.

“But it’s not true that he put the property in his mother’s name, that wouldn’t be possible. Not in Spain, not in Morocco, not in France,” the reporter said.

Meanwhile, Hakimi and his wife are yet to comment on the controversy.
