Sylvia Chan is the gift that keeps on giving. The Johor-born Singaporean made good on her promise when she said she was going to refute all the allegations that have surfaced online over the past month.
What started out as an unhealthy work environment within Night Owl Cinematics (NOC) has now exploded into a full on war between Sylvia versus ex-husband Ryan Tan. Someone even said that this entire saga can potentially be made into a Netflix documentary, judging from all the content we’ve seen so far.
Lo and behold, last night Xiaxue (real name Wendy Cheng) dropped a shocking announcement, asking netizens to stay tuned to her exclusive tell-all interview with Sylvia. As someone who has experienced being cancelled and is no stranger to controversy, it made sense that Sylvia would choose to break her silence with Xiaxue (considering they’re also friends).
The social media influencer did issue a friendly warning – that this length interview was over 1 hour and 40 minutes long. That’s even longer than the runtime for “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” (1 hour 38 minutes)!
“Sylvia may be a bad guy. She’s clearly not nice to people, that’s why this shit has happened to her,” Xiaxue said, “but are the people behind this [expose] really better than her?” With that being said, there’s a lot to unpack.
What happened when Ryan and Sylvia divorced
Prior to their separation, Sylvia claimed that her former flame’s salary was significantly higher than her, in addition to not owning any shares. It wasn’t until the Covid-19 pandemic when their salary became equal. Following their separation, Ryan gave 51% of the company while he still had control of the company as director.
There’s also a screenshot where Ryan allegedly tried to backdate his resignation as director to May 2021, after publicly declaring that he had resigned. The screenshot of the email was dated 11th October.
During the sit down, Sylvia also told Xiaxue that their “happy marriage” that was fed to the public has been an illusion all this while. There have been allegations of Sylvia’s cheating scandal (the penis sucking episode and viral blowjob video), but the 33-year-old insists she’s never cheated during their marriage.
Sylvia or Ryan – who cheated?
“We never had a happy marriage because he has had something to do with the girls in NOC,” she was quoted as saying. “That’s why I’ve always kept my silence because I’m going to implicate the whole world… I just tolerated all of this because I’m very proud that we were the ‘golden couple’.”
Sylvia also claimed that Ryan had cheated with a waitress when they had opened a restaurant earlier in their marriage. She also claimed that Ryan’s cheating habits had continued and it involved some of the NOC talents, where he would consistently offer to “send them home”. Ryan had apparently confessed to Sylvia about the time when one of the girls “threw herself at him while drunk”, to which Xiaxue remarked, “and his penis accidentally fell into the vagina?”
Ryan had also admitted to have crushes on the girls but said they were just eye candies. When Xiaxue probed further, Sylvia brought up Ryan’s Taiwan trip with Grace and Isabelle, as well as name drop Rachel, Michelle and Aurelia (who is known to be Ryan’s favourite in the NOC community).
The girls’ statements on IG Story
Someone even included a timestamp of the entire session below:
Among the things they touched on included why Sylvia feels NOC owns Reno King, Sylvia’s computer being hacked, how much Ryan is demanding for Sylvia to buy him out, who is behind Sgcickenrice, Ryan’s multiple suicide attempts, their shared custody of Porky, Sikeen’s ongoing salary, the alleged sex barter, the infamous blowjob video, how Nina Tan is being pressured by her family because Ryan is her cousin, and also why they decided to shut down the Thirsty Sisters.
Watch it here:
Following last night’s exclusive interview, Xiaxue has also offered to interview Ryan (if he’s up to it). “My job as an interviewer is just to ask the (…) hardball questions and leave it up to the audience to interpret my guest’s answers themselves,” she wrote.
Update (25th October, 5:20pm):
At approximately 5pm, Sylvia released another apology, taking responsibilities for her actions this time around. It’s short, concise, and more genuine than 4-page statement she released on 13th October.
