Eurovision is over and Azerbaijan’s Elnur Huseynov is now resting in Turkey. He was in Antalya last week with Ebru Gundes, who coached him on The Voice Of Turkey, and this week he is back at home in Istanbul. He’s been hanging with his good friend and in-demand model Senem Kuyucuoglu, who’s known for her anything-goes attitude and penchant to party.
So it was only a matter of time before the “Hour of the Wolf” singer found himself in a bit of trouble. According to tabloid Sabah, Elnur and Senem went to Istanbul’s Cihangir district earlier this week for a bit of fun after the sun went down. The magazine claims the duo had a drop too much at the bar and ended up annoying the other customers. Policemen allegedly warned them to quiet down, but they didn’t stop. Senem reportedly shouted, “Don’t take my pictures, don’t look at me” and “My head is beautiful, don’t touch!” The magazine claims onlookers and staff exchanged harsh words with the pair.
In response Elnur has shared a video on his official Facebook page with the caption “Real story!!” to set the record straight. The video shows him and Senem using salt and pepper as microphones, and they then walk around asking staff if they were ejected from the bar. Of course everyone says “no.” Elnur ends the video with a message to the tabloid: “So we are both good people. Please just do your job. Be ashamed!”
Despite de-bunking the magazine’s claims, Elnur hasn’t convinced all of his fans the story is fake. Just check out this message from one of them.
We love how Elnur has stood up to those trying to throw shade on his good name. A part of us wants another tabloid to write something so we can watch another fun video response!
