MALAYSIAN singer Gary Chaw is tight-lipped over speculation that he and his wife Wu Su-ling have separated, Sin Chew Daily reported.
His manager, who is also his brother-in-law, said Chaw is not taking any questions regarding his marriage.
Chaw, 42, who held a concert at Bukit Jalil Stadium on June 16, was said to have separated from Wu after she was seen taking their two children to her new home.
She was also spotted going out with friends, but Chaw was nowhere in sight. The couple married in 2008.
Chaw seemed nonchalant about rumours of his marriage.
He has been sharing pictures of himself and his dog on Instagram.
Chaw rose to fame for his song Superwoman in 2006. He was named Best Male Mandarin Singer at Taiwan’s Golden Melody Awards in 2008.
> A company in China’s Jiangsu province got into trouble after one of its security guards used a mannequin to stand in for him while he slept in another room, China Press reported.
According to local news reports, the Nantong City Fire and Rescue Department discovered that the fire control room of the company was “manned” by a mannequin dressed in a security guard’s uniform.
It also wore a wig and cap.
The fire control room must be supervised around the clock to coordinate rescue efforts in the event of a fire.
A spokesperson for the company admitted that the person who was supposed to be in the fire control room was asleep in another room nearby.
He explained that the incident happened due to the company being understaffed.
The Fire and Rescue Department subsequently told the company to improve its scheduling system.
The company has since been fined.
