A refresher on the drama
Images of Neelofa’s wedding quickly went viral as Malaysians online were enraged by the apparent lack of SOPs.
The anger continued when she and her husband were seen taking part in tourism activities in Langkawi after the wedding, despite the interstate travel ban for social purposes.
Neelofa had also posted images and videos of her and her husband riding a jetski together, taking a cable car ride together, and watching the sunset together on her social media accounts.
However, she later claimed that the trip was for a collaboration with Chatime to promote some of their new stores in Northern Peninsular Malaysia. Her permission letter for travel was obtained from the Sri Hartamas police station.
