PETALING JAYA: Model Felixia Yeap has distanced herself from the newly-launched Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah), after pictures of her supposedly endorsing the party were spread on social networks.

The former Playboy bunny, who converted to Islam in July last year, said she did not want her picture or her name to be used for anything linked to politics.

“I am not interested in being involved in anything political. Please remove this at once. Your desperation makes you look pathetic,” she said in a Facebook post on Saturday.

The picture showed Yeap with the words, “saya felixia orang cina & beragama Islam” (I Felixia, am a Chinese and Muslim) and “Islam rejects racism.”

There is also a symbol of Amanah in the picture.

Amanah was officially launched on Sept 16, with the event being attended by PKR and DAP leaders. Its top leadership is made up of former PAS members, who were said to be progressive.
