ACTRESS Serina Redzuawan has remained tight-lipped about her supposedly “shaky marriage” to husband Gavin Edward O’Luanaigh, which Harian Metro reported was possibly heading for divorce.
The daughter of Datuk Chef Wan declined to comment when asked whether she had filed for divorce but dispelled talk about a third person affecting the marriage.
“We are still discussing and trying to handle the matter the best way possible.
“As you know, a marriage involving two cultures is not easy because there are many challenges,” she said.
Her husband is Irish.
She declined to comment further on what she described as a delicate matter.
Serina and Gavin, whose Muslim name is Salahudin Ghafar, were married in 2010. They have two children.

She was sleeping with her sister at their grandmother’s house in Kota Baru on Tuesday when her 25-year-old uncle stabbed her repeatedly.
The uncle apparently has a history of mental illness and has been arrested.
Her 55-year-old grandmother, who was asleep in another room, lodged a police report.
The girl is being warded at Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia in Kota Baru.
> Despite her advanced age, a 104-year-old woman in Marang, Terengganu, is still thatching roofs every day to earn a living, Kosmo! reported.
Together with her youngest son Zaiton Mat Amin, 60, Wok Taib completes up to 100 roofing panels daily, using palm fronds. Each panel is RM2.
Wok Taib said she chose to earn an income this way so that she could continue the family tradition, which was started 80 years ago.
She said there was still demand for thatched roofs, especially among restaurant and chalet entrepreneurs, including those in the Klang Valley.
