THE Shah Alam Syariah High Court has issued a temporary custody order of Farid Kamil’s two children, aged eight and 10, to his actress wife Diana Danielle, Sinar Harian reported.
The actor said he had not been able to see his two children for more than three weeks.
He claimed that the problems in their marriage started with a “third person” but refused to elaborate while Diana said Farid’s remark was a baseless allegation.
On March 20, Farid and Diana appeared in court to attend the first mention of her divorce application she made on March 10, under Section 47 of the Islamic Family Law (State Of Selangor) Enactment 2003.
She had cited irreconcilable differences and “shiqaq” (prolonged disagreement) for the divorce. However, the court proceeding concluded that day when Farid refused to utter the “talak” (proclamation of divorce), stating he still loved his wife.
Farid and Diana got married on Nov 3, 2012, and they have two children. While Farid is hopeful for a reconciliation, Diana is having none of it.
> A man who allegedly assaulted actor Kamal Adli with a baton while he was promoting a sale in Singapore, has been remanded for another week to complete the medical examination at Singapore’s Institute of Mental Health, Sinar Harian also reported.
The remand application was granted by the court with the next mention date fixed for April 4. On March 14, the man was remanded for two weeks to undergo psychiatric evaluation at the institute.
