Turkish TV series actor, fiancée accuse each other of domestic violence
Hazım Körmükçü, a 53-year-old actor who is known for his part in several TV series including “Tears of Paradise” (Cennetin Gözyaşları), was scheduled to marry his fiancée, 36-year-old TV presenter Zeynep Tandoğan, in June.
“He insulted me. After I told him ‘Behave like a man,’ he hit me and beat me,” Tandoğan said during a live program on private broadcaster TV8 on June 11.
Körmükçü also appeared on the program by phone, accusing his former fiancée of attacking him. “She wounded my face. I have applied for a counter-suit after I learned that she had filed a criminal complaint against me,” he said.
