PETALING JAYA, Malaysia - Local artist Abby Abadi was shocked by allegations of domestic abuse made by her ex-husband Muhammad Noor Farhan Che Bakar Farhan on Wednesday.
Abby, whose real name is Arbaiyah Abd Manan, said that she was surprised by the claims and added that it was Muhammad's way of covering up the real situation.
"I do not have any witnesses. Only God knows what really happened.
"I am shocked to read his statement as I tried my best to cover up our marital issues from unrelated people," she said on her Instagram account on Thursday.
Admitting that there were disagreements throughout her marriage, Abby however denied that the situation was as pictured by her ex-husband.
"You can read or listen to what he has to say but do not believe him.
"He is used to lying," she said.
Muhammad had claimed that Abby physically and emotionally abused him when they were still married.
According to him, the first incident happened in January when she bruised his face by throwing a bunch of keys at him.
He added that the second incident happened on May 17, where Abby scratched his face and arms when he refused to discuss their divorce case, which he requested for via SMS.
Abby and Muhammad were married in southern Thailand on July 9 last year.
Syariah judge Shaiful Azli Jamaludin on Wednesday ruled that the divorce, sought via SMS on May 9 was valid.
