The news circulating on social media about the status of Johor princess Tunku Tun Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah Sultan Ibrahim’s marriage and her links to skincare and slimming products are not true, says the Johor Royal press office.
“The recent spate of rumours circulating on social media regarding HH Tunku Tun Aminah’s marriage to Encik Dennis Muhammad Abdullah being on the rocks are malicious and untrue.
“The Johor Royal family are upset that irresponsible parties are spreading these baseless rumours about their personal lives,” the Johor Royal press office said on its Facebook page on Wednesday (Jan 30) night.
The Johor Royal press office said complaints have been lodged with Facebook but have yet to be acted upon.
“The Johor Royal family hopes that immediate action will be taken by Facebook to take down the malicious content, in line with the company’s pledge to ensure fake news is dealt with sternly,” it said.
Tun Aminah via the Facebook page had said that she was displeased with the rumours circulating on her marriage and also her alleged business dealings with skincare and slimming products.
“My husband and I are happy, contrary to what the rumours say.
“I have also not endorsed any products as written by these unscrupulous people who are out to use my name in order to get attention,” she was quoted as saying.
The princess was also critical about Facebook’s failure to act promptly on complaints lodged against such messages on its platform.
Appended with the statement was a screen capture of one such post titled ‘Tunku considers ending it with him’ that bore a photograph of the princess and her husband.
The Johor royal married her Dutch-born husband in 2017.
