Jordan Ozuna, Karim Benzema’s partner and mother of his fourth child, has announced that she has converted to Islam.
The American model expressed her emotions and shared that her conversion ceremony took place at the Madrid Mosque, a profoundly meaningful experience for her.
“I have converted to Islam. It was here in the Mosque of Madrid. They recite the Qur’an. … It’s a small and intimate ceremony. I cried like a girl. I am very sentimental,” she said.
“I have researched a lot about this religion, and I find it beautiful. Everything I’ve read about her has moved me. During Ramadan, I read the Qur’an, and it made me cry. I also read The Sacred Path to Islam , about a Christian who converts to Islam, like me. A really precious book.”
