A Singapore man clearly did not take rejection well after a woman he knew for a few years said she only saw him as a friend.
As revealed in a court judgment published on Saturday, K. Kawshigan filed two lawsuits worth S$3 million in High Court last year against Nora Tan for allegedly causing “damage to his stellar reputation” and “trauma, depression and impacts” to his life.
He also filed a S$22,000 magistrate’s court claim against Tan for allegedly breaching an agreement to improve their relationship. But this was struck out last month by the State Courts, which said the claim was “groundless” and an abuse of the court process.
A friend in needy
According to court documents, the pair met in 2016 and became friends but their relationship didn’t blossom further. Four years on, Tan only regarded Kawshigan as a friend while he saw her as his closest friend.
Their friendship worsened when Tan asked to set boundaries and basically told him to not be so needy. In response, Kawshigan issued her a letter of demand which threatened legal action for “monetary damages arising from negligent infliction of emotional distress and possible defamation.”
Kawshigan told Tan that she can either take their friendship to the next level or pay the consequences. Tan eventually agreed to do counseling with him thinking it would help him accept that they could not be lovers but stopped after one and a half years as she felt it was pointless and going nowhere.
In April 2022, she began harassment proceedings against Kawshigan and ceased communications with him a month later. She also obtained an expedited protection order against him.
Kawshigan argued that her breaching attempts to strengthen their nonexistent romance got in the way of him earning as an “active high-capital trader by night and a busy CEO by day” and actually caused him trauma instead.
Living the (incel) dream
And of course, with a case like this, there will be judgment from the Internet community. Already, some of the comments we found make for quality zingers.
No dates, just court dates
In fact, a quick Google search found that there is a person named K. Kawshigan who is chief executive of drone racing company D1 Racing. Although we have been unable to confirm if he is the same person involved in the court case, we did learn that D1 Racing is under police investigation for organizing a New Year’s Eve Party last year that got canceled just days before. Multiple ticketholders have lodged police reports after failing to get refunds.
The party promised local DJ acts including Jade Rasif who said she wasn’t aware and didn’t agree to the event.
The S$3 million High Court claim will continue in court on Feb. 9.
