Fakih, born a Muslim, had recently been the topic of media speculation after she reportedly converted to Christianity earlier this year.
Rima came to fame after winning the national Miss USA pageant in 2010, when she became the first Muslim and Arab woman to be crowned Miss USA after competing in the pageant – which at the time had been owned by current US presidential hopeful Donald Trump.
