Amber Chia got sued by Yap Wen-Ji..How sad

Will the feud between Amber Chia and Yap Wen-Ji on The Malaysia Ford Supermodel Search ever ends ? Not quite sure for now but it seems this case might get dragged for a very very long period. So yeah, below is the article from New Straits Times published on Tuesday, 20th October regarding on Yap Wen Ji filing a suit of defamation against Amber Chia.

KUALA LUMPUR: Model-cum-actress Amber Chia faces a suit from her one-time business partner Yap Wen-Ji.

Yap, who created and produced the model search series Malaysia's Supermodel Search, yesterday filed a suit for defamation against Chia at the High Court here.

Represented by her lawyer, Kenneth Tan Chik Wai, Yap is suing Chia in relation to statements she made in the Sin Chew Daily newspaper on Oct 6.

She has also named Sin Chew Corporation and the newspaper's editor-in-chief Pook Ah Lek as defendants.

She is seeking general damages of RM10 million, aggravated damages of RM5 million, interest, an injunction restraining Chia, Sin Chew Corporation and Pook from further publishing defamatory statements, and an order that Chia retracts her statements and apologises within five days.

Tan said the newspaper published an article on Oct 6 which stated that Chia was allegedly cheated by her business partner.

Yap claimed that her reputation had been severely damaged and the article had resulted in sponsors withdrawing from the show.

Since we are already on board for this saga, more juicy news coming up soon..
