“There are always two sides to a story"
Model Robina Khan Shah has responded to claims that her husband assaulted a renowned makeup artist named Bryan Williams.
The allegations first came to light when fellow model Mushk Kaleem shared details. The incident is said to have taken place on the set of a photoshoot at Nabila’s Salon.
Taking to Instagram, Mushk said:
“Just heard that a model’s husband brought armed gunmen on set, beat up a Nabila makeup artist in front of other models, over the makeup artist refusing to carry her personal belongings.
“Imagine, you’re shooting in peace, and someone’s husband and his goons bring weapons with them and start physically assaulting someone.
“Appalled. Baffled. Disgusted.
“I hope this model’s name comes out, and I hope no designer/model/photographer ever works with her.”
Many believed Robina’s husband was responsible and called her out.
Yusra Shahid said: “Shame Robina Khan Shah!
“Bringing in goons and beating up a makeup artist just because he refused to carry your personal items is beyond disgraceful, disrespectful and illegal!
“This is no way to treat anybody! Unethical!”
Mushk reposted Yusra’s story and further added:
“Robina Khan Shah, you should be ashamed of yourself. You’re a godless woman.
“I’m sure you must have felt really powerful when your husband came to your rescue to beat up a makeup artist.
“I’m at a loss for words. All designers, fellow models, makeup artists, photographers – the entire fraternity should ban this girl.”
Despite the allegations, Bryan Williams has not come forward to give a statement about the violence he was subjected to.
However, he has reposted a number of Instagram stories which detail the attack.
Amidst the controversy, Robina has given her side of the story, saying:
“There are always two sides to a story, and this side comes from a mother, a professional model who is responsible for taking care of her ailing parents and a dedicated wife.
“The argument started when I requested a makeup artist to carry my phone when I was ready for my shot on shoot today.
“He blatantly said that he was not going to do it and that I should take care of my own stuff and also swore at me.
“That made me really upset so I in turn also swore at him.
“Amidst all this chaos my driver called my husband and told him what happened.
“I am sure no respectable husband would tolerate anyone abusing his wife for no reason.”
“When he arrived to pick me up he asked who misbehaved with me and this makeup artist in question very rudely said it was him and what is his problem.”
Robina Khan Shah said her husband was angered by the makeup artist’s attitude and slapped him as a result.
She continued: “Now you decide whether it was okay for the makeup artist to start misbehaving in the first place with me on such a small issue where he personally attacked me and my reputation on set for reasons only he knows better.”
The model said it was unfair that she and her husband were being blamed.
Robina also questioned her fellow models, adding:
“How are my fellow models okay with one of their own being labelled this way?
“How long are we going to allow ourselves and our profession and hard work to be demeaned this way?”
