By now, you must be living under a gigantic rock if you aren’t aware of Xiaxue’s exclusive interview with Sylvia Chan, which dropped on Sunday night. Although the lengthy interview is 1 hour and 47 minutes long, it has already garnered 963k views, trailing behind her Rosmah Mansor video (which has 1 million views).
One of the most shocking revelation was when Sylvia opened up about ex-husband Ryan Tan’s alleged cheating behaviour. The Johor-born Singaporean even name dropped several girls and implied that Ryan may have had some hanky-panky business with some of them. Many of the girls have taken to their Instagram Story to deny the allegations.
Since then, Samantha Tan – the winner of Knockout who got called “f**kface by Sylvia – also shared her thoughts after watching the interview. While she “empathised with Sylvia… and understands why she feels that way”, she also hopes that the 33-year-old lady boss can resolve her personal issues and get necessary help.
In addition, she also shed light on the 3 main reasons why she decided to quit Night Owl Cinematics (NOC) on 3rd October. The issues were:
- Late and missing payouts
- Lack of transparency in payouts
- Loss of job opportunities and support (Many talents claimed that they were removed from NOC’s media kit without their knowledge.)
In lieu of Ryan’s supposed cheating allegations, Samantha also echoed Rachel Wan’s statements that Ryan had never acted inappropriately when offering to send them home. “I’m not faulting her (Sylvia) for getting paranoid. I just want people to not jump on the bandwagon so fast, in falsely accusing Ryan. His friendship with us really was very, very innocent,” wrote Rachel.
On a happier note, Samantha announced that her beau Julius Ong recently proposed, and (no surprise there) she said yes! The influencer first met Julius 5 years ago and had their first date at Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King Four Seasons. It has been their favourite restaurant ever since.
Congrats to the newly-engaged couple 😉
