In 30 May 2015, a website (publishing in French) called El Manchar, published an article called:
Title: Un nouveau marié dépose une plainte contre sa femme pour faux et usage
Translation: A newly married husband files a complaint against his wife for forgery
The small article says that a man was so shocked after seeing his wife without makeup for the first time that he decided to sue her for fraud and psychological suffering.
Apparently, the staff of Emirates 24/7 have seen the article posted by El Manchar, and decided to adopt it in English and make a piece of news; those are the indicators:
Emirate 24/7 said that the husband is seeking $20,000 of damages. EL Manchar also
said the husband is also seeking $20,000 of damages (1)
Emirate 24/7 said that the husband mistook the wife for a "thief who came to steal his apartment". And so El Manchar said that too:
Original: Épouvanté, le mari aurait d’abord cru qu’un cambrioleur s’était introduit par effraction au domicile conjugal avant de se rendre compte que l’intrus n’était autre que sa femme démaquillée.
Translation: Terrified, the husband would have initially thought a burglar had entered breaking the marital home before realizing that the intruder was none other than his wife cleansed.
Now, as you look further into El Manchar, you will find this in the about section:
