Fakih converted to Christianity last month in preparation for her marriage in Lebanon next week to Wassim Salibi, a wealthy Christian music producer, Christian Today reports.

At the time of winning the Miss USA title, Fakih said, “I’d like to say I’m American first, and I am an Arab-American, I am Lebanese-American, and I am Muslim-American.”

According to the news site Albawaba, Fakih only connected to her Muslim roots in college.

“When I went to the University of Michigan, because there’s more of a Muslim community, my dad wanted me to learn more about Islam,” she said. “I didn’t know much about Ramadan and other holidays, and my dad wanted me to take that opportunity and learn.”

After winning Miss USA, Fakih was involved in some controversy when photos surfaced of her participating in a radio station’s “Stripper 101” contest. She was also convicted of drunk driving in 2012.

We pray for more souls to come to Jesus
yes, let's do
An integlilent answer - no BS - which makes a pleasant change
Praise the Lord
She does not quote the scripture.... I can do all things through him( ??) who strengthens me .........Not proof at all. I would ask her who is the 'him' she is referring to
Him or His in the Bible refers to Our Savior Jesus Christ
I hope she did not convert because of marriage to a christian (just to claim love). And mind you, it is not about conversion to christianity (that's religion) it is about conforming to the person of Christ (that's Life). Let's keep praying for her
How many of you have converted just to get a husband,?
how dare you question another Americans individual faith, choke yourself creep !!!
No true Muslim will ever abandon Islam.
Praise the Lord.
