A man has divorced his wife after she danced at a wedding.

The Saudi man reportedly filed for divorce after a video of his wife dancing at a wedding went viral.

The details of the case were shared online by lawyer Mohammed Al Jathalani who says the footage was sent to the husband who was not aware of his wife dancing.

The woman was not aware that she was being filmed.

Mohammed Al Jathalani wrote, "My mother told me about one of our relatives who was divorced by her husband after someone sent him a video of her dancing at a wedding!

"One of those attending the celebration filmed her without her knowledge and the footage was then leaked. Such incidents are just sad.

"Between the crime of the woman who secretly filmed the wife and the crime of the regressive husband who unjustly divorced her, even though she did nothing wrong."
