All hell broke loose on Twitter this morning when a user reportedly leaked a photo of former Prime Minister, Dato ‘Sri Mohd Najib Tun Razak who is alleged to have a new wife.
The photo depicts Najib holding hands with several people believed to be members of the woman’s family.
Twitter users were quick to unveil the identity of the woman. Apparently, she’s named Shimah and is a former flight attendant. She’s also alleged to be a relative of the CEO of Malaysian Tourism Exchance (MATEX).
However, there is still no official statement from Najib Razak following the spread of the photo on social media.
Netizens flooded the app with retweets and reposts, in utter disbelief. Some even said they could not picture him enamoured with any woman besides Datin Sri Hajah Rosmah Mansor. While some simply congratulated the ‘new couple’, others had separate concerns, including the authenticity of the photo.
This user even decided it was time to give up on romance altogether.
Of course, the matter also begs the question: What is Rosmah Mansor’s current marital status, bermadu or not?
In fact, the former PM’s known wife trended on Twitter herself just yesterday, following a provocative tweet published by a Malaysian correspondent about how he had journeyed to the Pavillion Residence in Bukit Bintang where he witnessed policemen lugging 284 orange boxes containing her luxury-brand bags from Najib’s home.
On this day, 2018, my editor told me to go to Pavillion Residence in Bukit Bintang for "something big".
Spent three hours there watching the police haul up these 284 orange boxes containing the much fabled Hermés Birkin bags from Najib Razak's residence. pic.twitter.com/k2asscVuRk
