KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysian singer Shila Amzah has broken her silence amid the allegations of her chasing her mother and siblings out of their family home.
In a TikTok live stream on Wednesday (Oct 11), Shila, 33, admitted that she had put up the property for sale without informing her siblings but denied chasing them out.
The songstress added that the reason she went forward with her decision without discussing it with her siblings was because she was exercising her veto power.
“That’s my house. It’s under my name. Don’t worry, no one is getting kicked out.
“I will bear the responsibility as the head of the family. I’m selling that house so I can purchase a better one (for my family),” she said, adding that she is already looking for a rented house her family can stay in temporarily.
Further elaborating on her decision to sell the house, Shila said that the distressing memories associated with the home following her parents Datuk ND Lala and Fauziah Sarman’s divorce prompted her to sell the property.
Shortly after, Shila’s younger brother Syafiq started a TikTok live stream where he accused the singer of being “pretentious”.
The 30-year-old claimed that Shila had the choice to transfer the property to their mum but didn’t do so as she wanted the money all for herself.
“There’s surely a reason why she doesn’t want to (transfer the house). She knows it can bring money. It’s probably worth RM2.5mil now,” he reportedly said.
Taking to her Instagram account to respond to the allegations, Shila lamented that she was “tired” of the ongoing conflict and claimed that her mother already accepted her decision to sell the home.
“I met up with my mum last week. I told her that a realtor will be coming, and she agreed that I could sell the house. My mum asked for a terrace house and told me to think about my siblings too,” she said.
In a separate Instagram Story, Shila said that she had already reached her limit and warned Syafiq to stop creating fake stories surrounding the family home.
“You use your sister’s name for clout and now you want to elaborate on the ‘truth’ you created to make your own fairy tale more interesting? I have all the receipts so don’t think I will stay silent,” she wrote.
Earlier this week too, Shila’s younger sister Syada said on Instagram that an individual turned up to view the house despite them not putting up any notices to sell the property.
Syada, 25, later reportedly added in an Instagram Story that she’s looking for a place to stay with her family.
