Malaysian singer Elizabeth Tan (谭素美) swore to get married before she turned 30. Elizabeth, or Lizzy as she likes to go by, fulfilled her vow on 20th March.
Photos and videos of her wedding went viral on Sunday (21st March) stunning and shocking fans. While many were in denial, that changed when the star herself confirmed the rumours.
The star married 30-year-old businessman Siew Jim in a church in Gombak. It was a quiet affair, with only 10 of her family and close friends in attendance. According to Lizzy, this was done to obey the standard operating procedures (SOPs). “I did plan on informing everyone when I was ready,” she stated. “I made a decision to not announce the wedding because I felt it was a small issue.” The 28-year-old considers marriage to be a personal matter.
Lizzy apologised for not being able to invite her other family members and the media, however, she firmly believes her marriage does not change anything. “I’m still the same Lizzy and I hope everyone will accept and honour my decision,” the singer said. She made the same promise to her fans, adding that her latest single “Beku” had been sung for this very reason.
Earlier this year, Lizzy released photos and videos of her in what appears to be a wedding dress; only for fans to discover it was for her latest single and music video, “Beku”. As such, their initial denial was understandable but upon discovering the new photos were from her father, many changed their minds.
In response to the matter, Lizzy wrote on her Twitter, “I know many boys out there are heartbroken and love sick, but you will find your true love someday too.” She also quoted a line from her song, “It wasn’t my choice to hurt you“.
Her fans however, have stood solidly behind her decision and have sent their congratulations via social media. Many expressed their joy and wished her and her husband well.
We hope the newly weds enjoy their journey together and look forward to hearing more songs from Lizzy! As she said, she will still be the same Lizzy even after her marriage.
