A MODEL who wanted a clean break with her jobless boyfriend was made a sex slave after he threatened to distribute her nude photos.
Major Chinese dailies reported that the 31-year-old woman claimed that she was also beaten up, raped and forced into giving in to all the man's sexual demands.
The man also recorded their sex acts on his handphones.
Sin Chew Daily reported that the woman lodged a police report on Sept 29 and the man was arrested at a hotel in Jalan Ipoh on Tuesday.
The man was said to have several criminal records for drug-related offences and car theft. Police seized tools believed to be used for processing drugs, eight mobile phones, which contained more nude photos and videos of the model as well as his other victims.
The reports said the man was also a casanova who lured his victims with his good looks and sweet words to convince them to have sex with him before taking nude photos and videos of the acts.
Kuala Lumpur CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Ku Chin Wah said the 32-year-old man was found to have also blackmailed several other women, including a Filipino model.
> Kwong Wah Yit Poh reported that world No. 1 shuttler Datuk Lee Chong Wei and his long-time sweetheart Wong Mew Choo will hold two wedding receptions on Nov 10 and 11.
Quoting a reliable source, the report said the receptions were meant for both Muslim and non-Muslim guests and VIPs, including Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.
It said the dates were chosen after much deliberation, as they are the first two days of the year-end school holidays.
Wong's resignation as Bukit Jalil Sports School (BJSS) badminton coach sparked speculation of an early wedding.
> Major Chinese dailies reported about the separation of cantopop star Leon Lai and model Gaile Lok after seven years of marriage.

Lai began dating Lok, who is 14 years younger, in 2005 before they secretly married in Las Vegas three years later.
Rumours that the couple was breaking up have been rife after photos showing Lok holidaying with another man in Bali surfaced online recently.
