MALAYSIA - At a young age of 26, actress Tasha Shilla seems to have had to deal with all sorts of scandals about her.
"I can handle any controversy, but I feel very bad for my parents."
"They are traders and they have to meet customers every day. Where can they put their face?" Berita Harian quoted her as saying.
She said she felt awful that her family was often dragged into such salacious talk.
"Previously, there were allegations that I had married secretly. My parents had to deal with relatives who were offended that they were not invited for the wedding."
These days, the actress, whose real name is Natashasheila Abd Razak, has to deal with talk that she was caught for khalwat with national football player Mahali Jasuli at a hotel in Kuantan.
"It is odd. Someone else was caught for khalwat, but I get the blame."
"I am not pointing fingers at anyone, but before making such baseless accusations, please check with the religious department to find out who actually got caught."
"Khalwat is not a small matter. It is very humiliating for my family and me to be put through this," she said.
