Actress Rita Rudaini Mokhtar has lodged a police report after death threats were made against her on the photo-sharing site Instagram.
The threats were allegedly posted by an Instagram user on the account which belonged to her former husband Mohd Aidil Zafuan Abdul Razak.
Mingguan Malaysia reported that the culprit suggested to Mohd Aidil Zafuan that he should hire someone to kill Rita, 39.
The mother-of-two had been caught in a dispute with her former spouse over monthly maintenance for their children.
The matter is still being played out in court.
Rita's lawyer lodged a police report at the Tun Razak police station in Kuala Lumpur on Saturday.
Rita and Mohd Aidil Zafuan married in February 2008 in Songkhla, Thailand. They were divorced in September last year.
