PETALING JAYA - The former girlfriend of Bosnian Ervin Ahbabovic dismissed claims by him that she only wanted his sperm with its European genes in order to have "better offspring".
"My genes are better than his," said an incredulous Melanie (not her real name) during an interview at The Star office yesterday on condition of anonymity.
"He always claims he is superior but there's no such thing as a superior gene," said the 29-year-old who described herself as entrepreneurial and well educated but declined to elaborate.
Melanie admitted that she had been in a relationship with Ahbabovic, 41. They met at a hotel in 2008. But she said that she has since realised her error.
"No one will love a bigoted, unintelligent man like him," she said.
She claimed that he had abused her physically and emotionally during the years they were together.
"He would beat me up and keep me disconnected from everyone I know until I recovered, so that no one would see my injuries," Melanie claimed.
"He made me feel that what he was doing to me was normal. He even made sure that my family and friends were pushed away so I wouldn't have anyone to turn to.
