EXCLUSIVE: Married At First Sight star Nasser Sultan is dumped by girlfriend Engy El Salawy – accusing him of ‘doing anything to stay famous’
Outspoken former Married At First Sight star Nasser Sultan has been dumped by his girlfriend of two years, Engy El Salawy.
Engy, 39, confirmed the split with Daily Mail Australia on Monday and said Nasser’s desperate pursuit of fame was the reason for their split.
“I used to be ashamed of him. He would do anything to become famous,” she said of the 53-year-old former music promoter.

“He lives in a bubble and life is short for that,” says Engy, who lives in Sydney’s western suburbs.
Engy explained that despite being in a relationship with Nasser since mid-2019, he asked her to keep their romance a secret so he could take advantage of his fleeting fame.
“I’ve been trying for two years and he just doesn’t want to take it seriously. He’s looking for a reality show and followers,” she said.

Nasser told Daily Mail Australia he was the one who ended their romance, adding that Engy “didn’t understand” his obsession with fame.
“I have a mission and I just want to continue as a celebrity,” he said.
The reality star went on to say that Engy was a “low-maintenance girlfriend” who would always be “hours late” if they planned to meet.
“I’ve been trying for two years and he just doesn’t want to take it seriously, he’s looking for a reality show and followers,” she explains.

“I hate people who are late. You’re not going to the beach [with] four different bikinis and bronzer when it’s 30 degrees outside,” he said.
Nasser said he is now looking for someone who understands that “he has to be a star” and isn’t worried about having children.
The socialite was linked to Gabriel Bartlett on Nine’s Married At First Sight in 2018.
The pair did not make it to the end of the experiment because they struggled with intimacy and Nasser’s unwillingness to compromise.
Remember this? Nasser first rose to fame in season five of Married At First Sight. During his time on the Channel 9 show, he was linked to Gabriel Bartlett, but the pair never quite made it as they struggled with intimacy and Nasser’s unwillingness to compromise.
