Bearing no grudges towards his ex-wife Puteri Sarah Liyana, local director Syamsul Yusof said he wants her to find a good partner in the future.
According to Syamsul, he will accept whoever his former beau chooses to be with as she deserves to live a happy life.
“If Puteri Sarah gets married to someone in the future, I will pray for her happiness. I also want a good man for her so she will be happy.
“The children are going to have a new dad later on, and I will have to accept it,” the 39-year-old told Kosmo! Online.
The Mat Kilau director also reiterated that he will provide Puteri Sarah, 37, with the support she needs in taking care of their children – Syaikhul Islam, six, and Sumayyah, four.
“Although we have separated today, it’s not the end of everything. Our children tie us together. As long as I can help, I will because (Puteri Sarah) is still the mother of our children,” he concluded.
On Wednesday (June 14), Syamsul divorced Puteri Sarah with a single talak in front of Syarie Judge Akmalludin Ilyas at the Kuala Lumpur Lower Syariah Court at around 12.25pm.
The court allowed Puteri Sarah’s application for divorce under Section 47 of the Islamic Family Law (Federal Territories) Act 1984.
During divorce proceedings, Syamsul agreed to pay RM6,000 monthly in child support starting this July. He will also pay an insurance amount of RM3,500 and a vacation fee of RM5,000 annually to each of his children.
Additionally, the filmmaker will give RM15,000 to Puteri Sarah as nafkah iddah (a three-month payment to the wife after the husband says he is divorcing her).
Syamsul and Puteri Sarah tied the knot on March 8, 2014.
On Jan 16, the actress filed for divorce from Syamsul on the grounds that there was no more understanding and prolonged shiqaq (disagreement) between them.
She filed the divorce application 10 days after Syamsul announced on Instagram that he had married Ira Kazar in Thailand.
