THE feud between two popular actresses seems to have fizzled out after they apparently called for a truce, reported Metro Ahad.
Through the Malaysian Artistes Association (Seniman), Neelofa, 23, and Anzalna, 23, have agreed to settle the feud but with certain terms and conditions attached.
Actress and presenter Noor Neelofa Mohd Noor, also known as Lofa, said she had no qualms about ending the row if her conditions were met.
However, she said she had yet to receive a response from Anzalna after her lawyer sent a legal notice on her behalf.
Lofa had sent the notice on June 13 asking Anzalna to show proof of the claims made in a newspaper concerning her.
Anzalna accused Lofa of belittling her family through Facebook, setting up a page called “We Hate Anzalna” and accused her (Anzalna) of being ill-natured.
Lofa admitted that Seniman representatives had met up with her to help solve the problem.
“I know they mean well. However, there are things that they need to do before a decision is made. Seniman and Anzalna consider this a small matter but I don't. To ensure that this does not happen again, I have to refer to my lawyer and family first.”
However, she was willing to give an opportunity to Anzalna to make things right although she noted that the statement in the paper affected her reputation.
She clarified that she had never said she would sue Anzalna.
> A reporter from Metro Ahad went undercover into a call girls' den that was being run by four women in a condominium in Hulu Kelang.
The paper received information that the four Indonesian women operated without a pimp, making it hard for authorities to detect them.
Most of the visitors were middle-aged men and some in their 30s.
During the reporter's brief stay, he came across several men going to the unit.
One of them seemed to be a frequent visitor because he even brought along some food.
