IPOH: Cosmetics millionaire Dr Hasmiza Othman was handed RM100,000 in cash by her 14-year-old daughter today at a press conference to announce her apology to singer Aishah in a dispute over fake diamonds being awarded in prizes.
Hasmiza, better known as Dr Vida, made a public apology to singer Aishah in a controversy over fake jewellery that Aishah said were among the sponsored prizes in a reality TV show.
“I admit that I was wrong when announcing the price of jewellery, the price was the purchase price when I first bought it,” said Hasmiza, according to Bernama.
“I make this apology after taking into account all the factors and consequences which directly affected certain parties in this case,” she said at a press conference at her home today.
Vida’s daughter, Nur Edlynn Zamilleen Muhammad Amin, 14, made a surprise appearance at the press conference, in handing RM100,000 in cash to her mother to solve the problem.
Nur Edlynn Zamilleen told reporters that the money was from sales of her skin-care product.
The controversy has lasted over a year, and was resolved through mediation at the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court last Monday.
The dispute arose when Aishah announced that the RM80,000 in prizes sponsored by Hasmiza were fakes.
Aishah said that after she was crowned the champion of the Gegar Vaganza programme, she had sent the jewellery she received as prizes for appraisal at a jewellers and found that they were not genuine.
