Man borrows RM800,000 from girlfriend, then dumps her
A 40-YEAR-OLD China national claimed her boyfriend took all her savings and asked her to leave the condominium they were staying in, Guang Ming Daily reported.
The woman, known only as Wang, said her Singaporean boyfriend had asked a locksmith to change the locks in the condominium and appointed a property agent to sell the unit in Singapore.
Wang said she lent S$330,000 (about RM820,000) to her boyfriend who was facing financial difficulties.
“But he suddenly disappeared last month and now a property agent has asked me to move out as my boyfriend wants to sell it.
“My boyfriend destroyed my previous marriage and now he wants to dump me and our son.
“I really do not know how I am going to go on,” said Wang.
Wang got married to a Singaporean seven years ago and her former husband set up a spa for her to manage, it reported.
However, Wang said her boyfriend destroyed the relationship with her former husband by creating a misunderstanding between them.
Wang left her husband two years ago.
> The daily also reported that speculation was rife that Singaporean singer Stefanie Sun Yan Zi is pregnant but her manager said she was not aware of it. Sun was spotted at a hawker centre in Singapore recently and her fans noticed she had put on weight.
The singer had also declined to perform in China, sparking news that she was pregnant.
It was reported that Sun might not announce her pregnancy now as Chinese believe that good news should only be shared after three months to prevent a miscarriage.
