ACTRESS Datin Diana Danielle has denied rumours that her husband, actor Datuk Farid Kamil, got physical with her in their marriage, Kosmo! Ahad reported.
Diana, whose full name is Diana Danielle Danny Beeson, said in an Instagram posting that “my husband has never ever, not even once, been physical towards me. I stand by him and we will work towards improving what is needed and strengthening what is already solid.”
Farid was remanded for four days after allegedly slapping a policeman and kicking a civilian at a police station in Selangor last week.
The actor is said to have been lodging a report about an accident when he allegedly slapped the policeman taking his report and kicked the leg of the man next to him.
On Friday, magistrate Zaki Asyraf Zubir granted a four-day remand order for the police investigation.
Lawyer Athari Bahardin said his client was being investigated under Section 353 of the Penal Code for criminal assault of a public servant, Section 323 of the same Act and Section 90 of the Police Act for disorderly conduct and Section 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act.
Diana, who has been married to Farid since 2012, said she kept silent after her husband’s arrest because she wanted to think before issuing a statement.
“At this point, I will not be answering any questions as I feel it will not serve the situation,” she said.
When contacted by the newspaper, she said she did not want to comment further.
“Thank you for giving us both the privacy we need after the incident,” she said.
> Ibrahim Sood’s special interest in monkeys and apes has led to the setting up of a special training school in Jerantut, Pahang, for the animals to become “professional pickers” of coconuts, Metro Ahad reported.
The school has attracted the attention of many monkey owners.
The training sessions are conducted by some of the villagers who have also been trained to take care of the monkeys.
Ibrahim, who is the “principal”, said most of the monkeys were send to the school as soon as they were born.
“However, I am selective and do not just take in any monkey. I will have to consider the species and its condition to ensure it meets all the criteria to pick coconuts.
Ibrahim, 49, said the selected monkeys would be put in a special living area during their training.
“Within a week, most of them will be taught how to open coconuts, differentiate between old and young coconuts, and climb coconut trees.
“We also monitor their diet and health. We do not feed them meat as it may cause fur loss,” he added.
With high demand for well-trained monkeys, he also sells “skilled” animals for between RM1,000 and RM3,000 each.
