Anti-Israel Activist Rock Star Roger Waters Reportedly Splits From Palestinian Journalist Girlfriend
Prominent anti-Israel activist and Pink Floyd rock star Roger Waters has broken up with his Palestinian girlfriend, Page Six reported on Tuesday.
As reported by The Algemeiner in June, Waters, 73, began dating 43-year-old journalist and author Rula Jebreal earlier this year, following his divorce from his fourth wife, Laurie Durning.
Page Six reported at the time that the Waters-Jebreal relationship was “the talk of the Hamptons, and some people are calling them the ‘Palestinian power couple.’ One can only imagine the pillow talk.”
Waters and Jebreal were reportedly introduced several years ago by Durning and Jebreal’s then-husband, Arthur Altschul Jr.
“Rula had asked to meet Roger because he’s a vocal activist for Palestine,” Page Six quoted a source as saying in June. “The two former couples have had dinner together many times. They were all friends.”
The source went on to say, “But after Roger split with his wife, he began an affair with Rula. Arthur found out, and their marriage ended. Roger and Rula have been together around three months and they discuss Palestine all the time, they are both so very passionate about it.”
On Tuesday, Page Six quoted another source as saying that the Waters-Jebreal relationship “was over as quickly as it began — while they agreed on many issues, they couldn’t find common ground on others. Plus, their families didn’t get along.”
Waters and Jebreal did not respond to a Page Six request for comment.
In recent years, Waters has spoken out against Israel’s West Bank security barrier, and became a vocal proponent of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
