Singer-actress Bella Astillah has rubbished allegations that she planned the arrest of her Singaporean husband Aliff Aziz and good friend Ruhainies.

Bella, whose real name Dayang Ara Nabellah Awang Astillah, said in a recent interview on TV3 programme Melodi that she herself was shocked by the arrest.

“Everyone knows I am good friends with that actress (Ruhainies). Why would I plan to catch them? I myself was shocked,” said the 30-year-old.

Bella added that she will not let netizens’ opinions on the matter affect her. Instead, she is ready to face whatever “tests” that may come her way and is choosing to move on.

The actress also revealed that someone had reached out to her to share information related to Aliff, 33.

“I have met and got this individual’s number. This person had been wanting to contact me for a long time but I was not able to (meet them) because I was too busy,” she said.

On March 9, Aliff and Ruhainies, 31, were detained by the Federal Territories Islamic Religious Department (Jawi) at a condominium in Kuala Lumpur on suspicion of khalwat (close proximity). They were later released on bail.

On March 13, Bella appeared at the Federal Territories Sharia Lower Court for the first mention after filing for divorce from Aliff two days prior. Her husband was not present as he had a filming schedule.

Bella and Aliff, who got married in 2016, divorced in 2019 after the Singaporean actor was accused of cheating on her.

The pair reconciled in 2020 and are parents to two children.
