It looks like Malaysia’s eccentric online personality Dato’ Seri Vida is no longer marrying her young boyfriend in December now that they have reportedly split up. 

Ahmad Iqbal Zulkifli, 27, who used to be her assistant, told mStar this week that the wedding has been canceled and that the Qu Puteh beauty products CEO was no longer the one for him. Dato’ Seri Vida, whose real name is Hasmiza Othman, 50, has not responded to the purported break-up just months after going public with the relationship in August. 

“I went to look at a few hotels [for the wedding], one of them is the Grand Hyatt… and I bought something pretty valuable so I could propose to her, but it’s off now,” Iqbal was quoted as saying.

He added: “It would be difficult to find another woman to replace Vida because I still have feelings for her, but I realized she’s not the one for me.”

Iqbal reportedly said that the couple last contacted each other two weeks ago, which was when Hasmiza told her 2.8 million Instagram followers that the duo were “going through a rough patch.”

Hasmiza has also been sharing her concerns that her 16-year-old daughter Nur Edlynn Zamileen, aka Cik B, was having difficulties accepting her mother’s new relationship. If the wedding goes on, this would be Hasmizah’s third marriage. 

Hasmiza is well-known for her infamous, cringe-worthy I Am Me music video, in which she paraded in flashy outfits in front of the camera and threw cash while singing about herself.
