SINGER Shila Amzah and actor Sharnaaz Ahmad are no longer an item.
Sinar Harian reported that Shila, 23, who shot to fame after winning the inaugural season of China-based television programme Asia Wave last year, tweeted that she felt sad after the break-up, but would continue to pray for Sharnaaz, 28.
“Even if we can't be together in the end, I'm grateful that you were a part of my life at one point. I wish you all the best; I'll pray for you,” she tweeted two days ago.
However, the daily said Sharnaaz, who acted in the movie Juvana, denied that their relationship was over.
Shila's year-old relationship with Sharnaaz became hot news following public spats between her and her father, 80s singer ND Lala over the love affair.
ND Lala responded to Sharnaaz's plan to propose to Shila by calling him biadab (rude).
