Mara Brock Akil and Salim Akil Still Going Strong
Producer and writer Mara Brock Akil and her husband Salim Akil appear to still be going strong despite having a rocky year. The couple was posted up on Mara’s personal IG account on Christmas day. The wife and creator stood locked armed with her husband in front of a beautiful Christmas display. In the caption, Mara wrote:
MR and MRS CLAUS// What a beautiful way to end this year— shopping for those we love with grateful hearts together! #InTheLandOf #Christmas2019
The coupled-up photo of the Akils is significant since it’s the first time they’ve been seen publicly together since Salim was hit with claims he sexually assaulted a mistress and copied her show idea for “Love Is ____”. The show has since been canceled by OWN network and the lawsuit is still ongoing. Salim denies allegations.
