Have Michelle Tan and Ryan Tan reconciled? During the Night Owl Cinematics (NOC) saga last month, Wake Up Singapore received a series of leaked texts, which showed the co-founder making some inappropriate remarks about his female talents.
In the texts, Dabao (which is ex-wife Sylvia Chan’s nickname for Ryan) expressed his wish that former NOC employees Michelle and Aylna Neo would just go “kill themselves” after mistakenly assuming that the ladies were joining a competing channel.
Not long after the leaked Whatsapp texts were made public, Ryan took to his Instagram to issue his statement. In his apology, he explained that the conversation had taken place sometime between 4-6 years ago. Out of anger and frustration, he vented to then-wife after feeling betrayed.
According to the 33-year-old Singaporean, he has personally reached out to the duo in question to apologise. “They are both amazing and kind people and I feel ashamed that I ever said those things about them,” Ryan wrote. “I am also sorry to those I may have disappointed. I am not a perfect person and have never claimed to be.”
In her daily Q&A with her Instagram followers yesterday, Michelle answered an enquiry when someone asked about the status between her and former boss, Ryan. “I’m still trying,” the beauty influencer simply replied. Ryan reposted the IG Story with an animated emoji. Sylvia previously suggested that Ryan might have cheated on her with several of the NOC girls (including Michelle). Many of them immediately refuted Sylvia’s allegations.
After everything that has taken place, Ryan recently shared his reflection on the whole Night Owl Cinematics drama and how he feels about Sylvia now. Read more here.
