The whirlwind romance between popular actors Emma Maembong and Zizan Razak is officially over.
In an exclusive interview with celebrity gossip blog RotiKaya yesterday, Emma has confirmed the end of their two-year courtship.
Despite keeping the reason of the split under wraps, the 22-year-old divulged that she could no longer bear to get her heart broken by the famous comedian.
Meanwhile, the gossip sites reported trouble in paradise for the pair as early as November last year, rumoured to be caused by Emma’s father, renowned painter Ismail Embong (Maembong) who was not too keen of the relationship.
The rumour was since squashed by Emma and Zizan, who both clarified that Ismail did approve of the romance.
However, reports surfaced that the Maembong family faced problems after Ismail posted on social media his unhappiness over Emma’s sister Yaya hosting a traditional henna party during her wedding recently.
Ismail also claimed that three of his children – Cha Cha, Popo and Amad – were chased out of Yaya’s house, where she lived with her husband Wan Raja.
On questions whether Zizan would also opt for a simple wedding with Emma to satisfy Ismail, Zizan said he would respect Ismail’s wishes.
“Sometimes, the elders want a simple ceremony, and as a younger person I have to understand their situation.
“However, as a public figure, I also belong to the people. I will try to be fair to ensure that I do not offend the elders, but my fans must also be taken into consideration,” he added.
In an earlier interview, Zizan also praised Emma’s way of handling the family conflict, saying she was mature enough to discuss with her family members and find a solution.MYNEWSHUB
