Actress Rui En just can't seem to stay out of trouble these days.

The star made headlines last year after mounting the kerb and knocking down a parked motorcycle at Block 331, Clementi Avenue 2.

She was subsequently fined $700 after pleading guilty to one charge of careless driving.

However, she was soon in the news again, this time for flouting the traffic rules by driving straight on a right-turn only lane in Orchard Road.

In this latest incident, she has seemingly upset her neighbours in Clementi.

According to a Lianhe Wanbao report, the neighbours wrote in to the Chinese daily to complain about her behaviour.

According to them, at about 6pm on April 20, Rui En knocked on their door and asked them for a power bank to charge her phone.

The elderly neighbours did not have one, so they invited her into their home to use their landline.

However, they said that the actress slammed the phone twice when the numbers she dialled did not go through.

When she finally did get through, she reportedly told her helper that she was waiting for the latter to return to open the door.

The elderly couple told Lianhe Wanbao that Rui En appeared agitated through the entire incident, and even ordered them to head upstairs to retrieve some of her items.

They also said that she did not thank them.

However, the report also stated that the next day (Apr 21), Rui En brought a gift basket to apologise to the elderly couple.

The couple refused the basket, but accepted her apology.

They also hoped that as a public figure, she will learn not to vent her frustrations on others and be aware of her actions.

Lianhe Wanbao contacted her agency about the incident, who responded by saying:

"This is a small dispute between neighbours.

"Rui En has personally explained to her neighbours and gotten their understanding.

"Thank you for your concern."
